The one that got away...

12 posts in this topic

Perhaps I should have told this story a while back…maybe now works fine. As many of you know my wife and I were expecting our first child together early last winter. Have to admit at first I was not too thrilled considering we have a seven year old handful in the family already. As the due date grew closer I accepted that I was going to be a new daddy and bring my first little fisherman into the world shortly. Tragically on Friday the 13th of October at about 1:30am my wife suffered an abruption and started bleeding to death internally. This caused a separation between the uterus and placenta causing our little girl to suffocate to death. I thank the Lord every day my wife is still here but will always wonder why anyone would lose a baby that is perfectly healthy and not even premature. Guess we will get those answers when our own time comes to go to the big, deep, clear lake in the sky full of 65 inch muskies.

I will close this sad story by saying thank you for letting me get this off my chest so we don’t have to talk to much about it in the boat or at the dock this season. See you on the water!

Brian,

So sorry to hear about your loss, bud. I'm sure it must have made for a tough fall and winter. My brother and his wife went through a somewhat similar situation but not quite that scary of an ordeal. The musky Gods will shine down on you this season, I'm sure.

Brian,

So sorry to hear that. Glad your wife is o.k. Things like that put things in perspective don't they? Have a great summer.

Brian,

Sorry to hear about your bad news. My mom went thru 3 herself after I was brought into this world. That's why I am an only child. Hey, for now, Alliah gets all your hugs and kisses all to herself. Consider yourself lucky to have her and when the time is right she will get a sister or brother. Glad to hear Muskie Girl is OK (give her a hug for me) and thanks for the heads up so we can just talk about fishing and my beloved White Sox on the boat this year (just tryin to make you laugh a little there). Stay strong my man and I will see you in about 10 weeks or so.

Sorry to hear of your loss Brian.Glad to hear your wife is doing good.It is hard to understand the Lord's plan in a situation like this but is all in his hand's. Also it can be a comfort to you to know that little baby is in heaven with the Lord. Our family will keep you and your family in prayer as you deal with this loss. Rick U.

There are no words to express the sorrow of losing a loved one and no way to explain the Lord's master plan.

When I was younger, I used to hate when my mom would say "every thing happens for a reason" because I wanted to know the reason. But you never can explain a mystery. Now as I am older, I try to take it as it comes and I too use "everthing happens for a reason". I hope you and Sam receive all the support you need anytime you need it.

So sorry to hear of your loss. My wife and I lost our first, a little boy, in December of 2005. You'll always question why it had to happen. He was perfectly healthy, my wife just went into premature labor at 21 weeks. It gets easier with time. Now we know that our little daughter, who was born on January 24th, 2007, has an extra little guardian angel looking out for her!

Thankfully your wife is OK!
