Just to let you know...

This is Mr Blogger...

This is going to be a very short blog, I just wanted to let you all know what is going on.

Brooke had a miscarriage yesterday. She had some cramping during the day and then at about 4.30pm some bleeding.

We went to Urgent Care about 5.30pm and they took some blood to do a beta test to see what her levels were. The tests showed that her levels were almost at zero so the doctor concluded that they must have been dropping for a while although she had no symptoms until yesterday.

The doctor said that, because the levels were almost zero, further tests or an ultrasound wouldn't be necessary as it was almost over and she would probably just experience some light bleeding and some cramping, but no more serious symptoms.

Obviously this is very upsetting for us. We had tried to do everything we possibly could and I really thought that this time it was going to be ok.

I just wanted to let you know, as Brooke may not be on here for a while until she is feeling up to it.

I feel weird even putting this on here considering I know you personally. I'm soooo sorry. This feels a little impersonal. I'll give you some time before I actually call you to see how you're doing. Lot sof love to the best manager in the world and MB.

Brooke - in this fairly estrogen air I'm not sure what a guy can say that anyone else has said - except what I always say.

Rock on.

You will have another opportunity. And there will be better days. And you and HB will be better for it.

Believe me.
