This is Jill's husband Bill writing on behalf of Jill to update her blog. She has not had any easy access to a computer or the internet while we have been at her parents during her dad's illness. She wanted me to quickly let everyone know what is going on. Since I am not much of a blogger, I will keep this short. Basically, the past several weeks have been very difficult for Jill and me. As she wrote in a previous post, her father was very ill and she was pregnant. Unfortunately, I do not have good news on either front. We had an ultrsound last Thursday and the baby's heartbeat was gone. On Friday Jill had a D&C. On Saturday her dad passed away from lung cancer. The whole family has pulled together during this difficult time. Jill's physical recovery from the D&C is going well so far and she is hanging in there, but of course she is very sad about the loss of the baby and her beloved father's death. She told me that she would appreciate any prayers for strength and comfort at this time.
She will update you later with more details about the last couple weeks. Thanks for all the support.
