Our Doctor's Appointment

We just got back from our doctors appointment and I wanted to write a quick note to let everyone know what is going on. My heart is hurting when I tell you that we have lost another child. We spent a lot of time talking with our doctor about what to do because my body had already begun the miscarrige process without my knowledge. We have decided to go ahead and have a procedure (DNC) done here in Abilene before we go back to Brenham . We will be having the procedure tomorrow, will rest for the day and go back to Brenham on Tuesday. Thank you again for all your prayers. Please continue to pray for our family, for renewed hope and peace.

Been thinking about you all day. We are so sorry to hear that news; we were hoping so much that that was not what you would say. Our hearts break again with you two. I'm not sure how to get in touch with you or even if yall want to see people, but please call me if you need anything. You two are loved and I'm comforted knowing you are with your families and a good doctor. Love you so much. Praying for peace and your sweet family.

We are friends of the Thompsons and just wanted you to know that you are in our prayers. We lost a child before our first was born and about a year before leaving TX to live in Bolivia so we know your hurt in so many ways. There are no words, but know that we are trusting the Holy Spirit to intervene and speak to the Father to petition Him for your every need. God bless.

Steph, I wanted to tell you that the same thing happened to me. They called it a blighted ovum. I hate that word to this day. I didn't want to write anything that would discourage you the other day when I read what you were told. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to let you know that it is not your fault and this baby is real and a part of heaven. I had to do the same thing, get the procedure. It was very hard on me because my heart was hurting so badly and I felt like they were taking something away from me. We ended up keeping a part of the procedure and burying it. It helped me grieve. I was so sad after this because I trusted God and felt embarassed, hurt, and sad. I want to remind you that it is not God's fault or desire. Sin entered the world and so many things that never should happen do. The pain that some people have to go through should not even exist. But it does and that is a part of our fight and battle in this world. We see way too many things that we would never see in heaven. I love you and I am here for you. Please call. I will be there in a moment if you need me.

You guys are in my prayers during this very tough and difficult time. I pray that God will give you peace and knowledge to deal with this challenge. I was able to meet Lee when he came to our Wednesday night bible study with Bob, but unfortunately, I have never had the pleasure of meeting you Stephanie, although I have heard lots about you and the kids. I know that this is hard, but it is only serving to make you and your ministry stronger. I am in prayer for your family.
