Happy "99th" Birthday Grandpa

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Today, would have been my Grandpa's (who I spoke of in the previous post) 99th Birthday. I miss him a great deal, and I carry his memory around with me. He's only been gone since June of 2009. It amazes me that I will miss him until I am a little old lady myself one day.

Today, his birthday, as I mentioned before, would be the 1st day I'd be able to take a pregnancy test. Our first pregnancy ended (the heartbeat stopped) on the date my Grandpa passed away. I woke up at 4:00am, and I couldn't wait anymore. I got up and took a pregnancy test.

I told you we were Kindred Spirits. emoticon

Keep me in your thoughts/prayers that this pregnancy is a full-term and healthy one.
