Well, for all the celebrating that might be going on in a perfect world (my wife FINALLY finished and mailed off her national board certification entries!), we're all a little bummed. In spite of the gorgeous day, we've still got a sick-but-recuperating little girl, and we learned yesterday that my brother and his wife lost the baby. They've been there before - doesn't make it any easier, probably worse. And now there's the issue of other folks trying to say the right things and not being able to. Don't think anyone would understand, unless they've been through it - or if they're little kids. We told our little girl this afternoon, and she took it well. Very sad - she was looking forward to it already - but she's such a big girl. Really, there's nothing to say but to be there. Hope we're able to do that.

You're right, Rick. It is hard to know what to say. My nextdoor neighbor lost her baby and I hadn't a clue what to say. I just hugged her. So sorry for your family. Hope Cammie gets well real soon.
