Disheartening

I know that I mostly blog about sewing (or craftyness) and don’t always post lots of personal things going on with our family. However, since starting this site, I have gotten to know so many of you so closely – my internet family, that I feel like I can share good news and bad. Unfortunately, this time it’s the bad.


I am deeply saddened to share with everyone that I had a miscarriage. The doctor has classified this as a missed miscarriage and am scheduled to have a D&C Thursday afternoon. As I am gripping to deal with all of this, I hope you all understand if I don’t respond to e-mails or comments as fast as what I normally do – I’m reading them I promise.

    Dear Stacey,
    I love reading your reviews, progress, and comments about your life. Even though I have never posted I enjoy your upbeat comments and am always amazed at your skill and volume of sewing and crafts.
    I want you to know you’re in my thoughts. There are a lot of us out here that are saddened. I know there is nothing I can do to make this easier for you, nor your family. I care and will hold you in my heart. Please be kind to yourself.
    All my best,
    Sue

    Stacy, I’m so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I too had this kind of miscarraige many years ago and became depressed as result. Sewing was the one thing that brightened my outlook, lifted my depression, and helped me through this time. I hope that you will keep up the sewing. It does help. I am praying for you and your family.

    Oh Stacy. I wish I could fly to Kansas and hug you. As you know I also have fertility issues and had a miscarriage in December. It is just devastating. I am so so sorry because it is horrible and sad and I think only time can heal it. Hang in there. You have a great (real life) family and Internet family that loves you and wishes you only the best!

    Hi Stacy,
    I don’t post often, but i read your blog most days since I’ve discovered it. I’m so sad to hear your news. I also experienced two miscarriages and ended up having two D&Cs as well, so I know what you are going through. Take it easy for a few days and remember to take care of yourself! I will be thinking of you.
