Don't know if you read Journey to the Darkside by padme and Master Anakin, but they can use all the loving, supportive, and understanding thoughts you can send their way.

Padme had shared recently that she was pregnant. Sadly, today she suffered a miscarriage. Both are in a lot of pain and will be taking a break from blogging until they are up to it again.

I had recently joined Twitter, after seeing it on their blog, and had been 'following' padme. With all the work-related craziness, it was the closest I was getting to reading any blogs, let along posting to mine. So when I saw today that she was feeling bad enough to head to the emergency room, I worried... First thing I did when I got a chance to log on tonight was to check their blog for any updates... my heartaches for them. I can't imagine what they are going through...

I had other, light hearted things to post today, but this is more important.

Padme's blog is always an interesting read. Sorry to hear about the miscarriage. Glad we don't have experience with this part of family life

We've never experienced it either, for which I'm profoundly grateful. But I can certainly sympathize.

Hi Robin,
I never saw your post until today. I really appreciate your kind words. That was a very difficult experience for me when I had my miscarriage last year. I had no idea that you had done a post about it. I appreciate your kind words in your post.

Hi padme,
I'm a firm believer in the power of kind & loving thoughts. I know I have nowhere near the following that you do, but I figured you could use all the good thoughts sent your way that you could get.
You both were so clearly in deep pain, I just needed to do something...
