The end

I have a D&C scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Tonight we eat cheesecake. Maybe the whole thing.

And the gods? Well, they can go screw themselves. We are strong. We've weathered every single horrendous shitstorm they've chosen to hurl at us, and we'll weather this one too.

Battered and bruised - yes, we're battered and bruised. But they can't beat us.

They will never beat us.

Delurking to rail at the unfairness of it. I know you're strong, but no one should have to weather this much. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry, Kristin.

My heart goes out to you and your Beloved.

I'm glad to see the strength in your post, but that doesn't make it any more fair.

So, so sorry to hear this, Kristin. These stupid internet hugs aren't nearly as strong and warm as I want them to be.
All my love to you and the mister.

I told you - "you are one tough nut to crack" (thankfully or you'd be way too heavily medicated to be posting).
I'm so sorry that this one ended this way.

I don't doubt that you're strong and you'll make it through this, but I wish you didn't have to. All my H&S and prayers are going out to you and Sandy and your angels tonight.
