Thoughts and Prayers -

Friday, April 25, 2008

Remember Matt from my previous post? He's in the Twin Cities this weekend for a memorial service for his beautiful wife Liz who passed away the day after their first child was born last month. Please keep Matt in your thoughts and prayers this weekend and in the coming days and weeks ahead as he deals with this most difficult time in his life. A reminder to the rest of us to stop sweating the small stuff and to be thankful for what we have - Suddenly the "big" things just don't seem that big to me anymore -

I remember when little Miss H. was born - the best worst day of my life - after 15 hours of intense "negotiations" she was finally delivered. They let me hold her for a brief minute before they whisked her off to the NICU and Dr. Immerman was vigorously working on me - I remember begging him to stop, to just leave me alone and let me rest and he said to me ever so sternly - "Darcie - I need to do my job or you will die!" I immediately shut my big mouth. I didn't for a second think he was joking as I know he would never just say that - but that thought hadn't even crossed my mind that that could really happen anymore. Not in this day and age.
It's been on my mind a lot lately in keeping up with Matt's and Liz's story. Heartbreaking. Something no one should ever have to go through. I'm thankful that our lives have gone along without many hitches - minor if any at all.Give your loved ones an extra hug tonight and make sure you tell your loved ones they are - before it's too late.

Hey Marcie,

This is Rachel from cribsheeters. I'm trying to figure out a way to help Matt, one of the other bloggers Alicia had the formula idea and I think if we could find a way to gather money or checks or SOMETHING to help Matt that would be great. E-mail me at and let's figure something out!!!
