Nothing Worse...

My grandmother always says "Nothing worse.". She will say this in reference to ridiculous things. Like the mailman never closes the mailbox- "Nothing worse.".

My mother told me the other day that she had a long talk with someone she works with. He and his wife have a beautiful two year old baby girl. She told him about Wyatt and about our journey with IVF. He told my mother that he and his wife went through 6 IVF cycles. She had 5 miscarriages. One was as late as 16 weeks. And now they have a beautiful baby girl. He told my mother to tell me that this is the hardest thing that we will ever go through. And to take solace in this. To know that life will be downhill from here. My mom didn't get it at first. But the minute she said it, I thought...."Nothing worse." Because there is nothing worse. And he's right, I draw strength from what we've been through and what we're going through every day. I know there will be other hard times, but I feel like if I can get through loosing my child, I CAN get through anything.

  1. You absolutely can get through anything - I always kind of look at it the same way, that things can only get better, and we know what we can handle.

    Hugs to you.
