You -- and your family -- are most definitely in my prayers. Love to you all.


Jill: Be strong and full of faith and trust in God......

Trust Him when dark doubt assail thee, Trust Him when trust is small. Trust Him when simply to Trust Him is the hardest thing of all.

Love, Tara

I am just sure I have no adequate words...this is amazing, devastating, surreal, what you are going through right now. Just know that you are prayed for...


I am so very sorry, Jill--that you have to go through all of this, and that it's all hitting at once.

You, your baby, your dad, your family and your friend will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Love and peace to you.


I am so, so sorry for everything that you are going through. I am amazed at your strength though and awed by your faith. I hope in my heart of hearts that things turn out better than they appear. --Sonya


I am really not the praying type but after reading your post I am ready to change my ways. You've got my prayers.


P.S. Your dad sounds like a really remarkable and wonderful man.


Oh, Jill, what an unbelievable amount of sad/worrying news to handle at once. You and your family are in my thoughts.


Praying for you.


Jill- I am sooo sorry. Gosh, when it rains, it pours. That is such an awful lot to go through in such a short time period. You'll all be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so very sorry. It's hard to believe that you have to deal with all that. What an unimaginable amount of stress. You, your friend and your family will be in my prayers.

Also, your father sounds like a great man. I was struck by what you said he said to you, that you're a good daughter and he loves you. So many people, especially fathers, are never really able to communicate that. How wonderful that he's so open and loving.

Jill, I so admire you. You've been through so much and yet your faith is still so strong. I was just talking with a friend about "letting go and letting God" (mostly how I can't seem to do it) and this seems to be a sign that I need to try harder...

I will say a prayer.


I am so sorry. It’s really too much to handle–your pregnancy complications, your friend, your father. My father was diagnosed with kidney cancer in August of 2005. He was then diagnosed with unrelated lymphoma in October 2005. I then had a succession of missed miscarriages myself. It is painful. And horrible. Try to, if you can, spend time with your father and your family. They need you - and you, them. I will be thinking of you and your family. I am sorry.


I'll be holding you, your baby and your father close in my thoughts.

I'm so, so sorry, Jill.


So terribly sorry for all that's happening. I'd just checked in on your blog this weekend wondering if you'd updated. I hope that things will improve in any possible way.


I do not know you - however, I started reading your blog through anothers site when I was pregnant, and going through a miscarriage.

My prayers and love to you and your family.

I hope for the best for you, your friend, and your father - and, of course your baby.

God bless you all.

I am so sorry! I will surely keep you, your father, your friend, your baby and your family in my prayers...



I am sorry to read of all your issues, although quietly hopeful for your pregnancy.

I do hope your father and friend can face their cancers and reach some type of peace -- through treatments or not.

During all this turmoil please try to find some time for yourself and your DH. Thinking of you.

Prayers offered for your intentions. I will also remember them at Adoration tomorrow. God bless you.


I'm not so good with the prayers...but you are all in my thoughts.


I'm so sorry for all that you anad your loved ones are going through. Thinking so hard for you, your dad and family and your friend.


I wish I knew what to say in situations like this that would make a person feel better or more hopeful. But I don't. The best I can say is that, although we are, for all practical purposes, strangers, I am thinking of you and hoping that God will give you the strength to cope with whatever He sends your way.


what devastating news about your friend and your father, not to mention your pregnancy, Jill. I do hope that more than 1 of these situations turns out for the best.

Oh, Jill! Prayers going up - for peace and comfort and His reconciliation of all your circumstances.


Dear Jill, know that I am thinking of you (and crying for you.)
I tend to agree with your mother. I just can't believe it. It sounds like a nightmare.
It seems sometimes there is so little justice, and it's rarer still where it is deserved.
