Heather update...

The last about 48 hours have been very eventful for us, and we are finally all settled down and resting.

Yesterday (Tuesday) Heather wasn't doing so well all day. Finally around 4 o'clock Heather called me in desperation to go to the hospital as she was having contractions. I quickly drove home from work and found her on the floor almost completely passed out. From that point I picked her up and took her to St. Mark's Hospital Emergency room in Salt Lake. Heather was doing horrible the whole drive and somewhat relieved to find herself in the emergency room.

After a little wait we finally got her in a room and the nurse drugged Heather all up. After a couple minutes she was felling much better. Apparently Heather had had a lot of the miscarriage naturally already, but we wanted to be at the hospital in case anything else happened. After a lot of waiting, she got an ultrasound to see if the D & C was still necessary. However, being late at night our OBGYN wasn't at the hospital, so we decided to come home and continue on with our D & C today at 12:30 (Wednesday).

This morning Heather felt a little better because she was all drugged up. We were told to come back to the hospital this morning to have another ultrasound. After a lot more waiting, Dr. Yamishiro decided it best to have the D & C to get rid of some left behind "stuff" and clear things out to avoid any possible infection of any sort. So around 3 o'clock today Heather went in for a quick same day surgery, and everything ended out ok! Now we are at home and waiting for the Relief Society to bring us dinner!

I just personally wanted to thank Heather's parents for all of their support in this whole thing. They have been by us almost the whole time. I also wanted to thank my parents for coming today and being willing to help us if we need any help. Your visit mom and dad meant a lot to us today. We are more than grateful to everyone else for your constant prayers and acts of kindness. It's very relieving for Heather and I to know that we have so many people that love and care for us. This whole experience has been hard for us (Heather especially), and we know that the emotional pain will never go away. However, we know that it's probably just one of the challenges that we were sent to deal with.

Again, thank you everyone for your prayers and support. We love you all!
