This past Thursday Denise and I went to the doctor for her first OB visit and sonogram. While going through the exam it was discovered that the baby was two weeks under-developed and had no heartbeat…in essence the doctor feels we have lost the baby. As you can imagine this has been devastating news for us and it has been an emotional few days. We still have to go back to the doctor on Monday for another exam so that they can verify that the baby will definitely miscarry. They will also decide what steps are needed in order to protect Denise’s health over the next several weeks.
We have been told that the next few weeks will be rough for Denise physically…not to mention emotionally. As a result I am taking an open-ended vacation from Compass Point and have no clue when I will return to the pulpit. I also will not be answering email, posting to this blog, Twittering or returning phone calls for a while. It depends on Denise’s health as to whether I will be attending this week’s Whiteboard Sessions…at this point I think it is safe to say that I will be a no-show.
We are trusting God through this process and know that He has a plan for all of this. We are faithful that God is at work and we are committed to following Him no matter what. Please continue to pray for Denise and I as we will also be praying for you.
