Could everyone please take a minute and say a good thought or prayer for my friend, Paula?
Paula and her husband found out this weekend that, after nine years of trying, they were finally pregnant. They had pretty much given up hope in having a biological child (her husband has a child from a previous marriage) when they got the good news. It was a total shock and she was beyond excited.
When she went in for her ultrasound yesterday, the doctors told her that the pregnancy was ectopic. Tests today confirmed that she has blood in her abdomen. They will be operating on her within the hour.
Please send some good vibes to Paula, if you can. She's the sweetest person in the world, and her amazing success story became a complete nightmare in less than 72 hours. I can't imagine what she's going through right now.
