I just wanted to let you all know my DH died suddenly last week so I won't be around much in the coming weeks. we have no answers as of yet as to what happened. and he only got to know his new daughter for exactly 2 weeks. I am just totally devastated...please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers.

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

I am so terribly sorry and I hope that you can pm me sometime you feel like talking, sharing....my DH passed two years ago. , life will go on, but not the same as it did before..

OH I am soo sorry for you. I can't even imagine how you feel right now. My DH lost his dad when he was younger and it was devastating. We are all here if you need anything.

I am so terribly sorry -- please do everything you can to rally all your support network around you, and to feel the love coming at you from the MDC crowd...take care of yourself and your children, and know your dh is with you in them...
