A nice little escape. Because how far can we really go right now anyway?

We hid out in the movie theatre this afternoon. Slouching down side by side sharing a big bag of buttered popcorn with the comforting darkness of the nearly empty room all around us was exactly what we needed today.

The only time I thought about the horrendous mess we're in was when I had to leave mid-way through the show to go to the bathroom.

Evidently even doomed pregnancies are capable of rendering your bladder mostly useless.

Which is, of course, cruel as hell.

I've been out of town the past few days, but I just wanted to give you big cyber hugs. I am so anxious for you right now and I wish I had the answers for you...any of them.
Thank you so much for letting us share in your journey. You are stronger then perhaps you realize.
I'm thinking of you and your family right now..sending good thoughts your way. I hope they help.

Prayers going up for you and your beloved and your babies, K. Having suffered through 2 'missed' miscarriages and a blighted ovum pregnancy, I know the horror and surreal-ness you are going through. :*( I will keep praying for a miracle for you. I'm so sorry. :*(

I have hid out in the movies many times....

I am so sorry you are going through this. I wish it was different. When I had my miscarriage, it was the waiting I couldn't stand, the not truly knowing what was happening with my body. It was horrible, and I send you caring thoughts, even though I know nothing makes it better.

The whole thing is cruel as hell. Nightmarish, really.

Hiding out is good for all of us sometimes. We all need a little break once in a while.

I'm sending out many many hugs to you and S.

And you're right, the movies can be a wonderful escape for a few hours.

I'll be thinking good thoughts for you!

Like Niobe said, the whole damn thing is cruel as hell. One day a number of years ago during a different difficult time I hid out through three whole movies. An expensive but worthwhile diversion.
