Wanna Cry Your Eyes Out?

Then read this blog.

Carol Decker is a mom who had pregnancy complications. You can read the synopsis here, but basically, she had an emergency c-section at seven months and after many complications, ended up having both legs amputated, her left arm amputated, her right ring-finger amputated and she is blind.

Imagine having your world shaken out from under you like that. I am so impressed by her courage to keep fighting and also by her husband, who has updated their blog almost daily and my heart aches for what they are going through. On the sidebar of their blog are auctions and accounts set up where you can help them. There are some really great things up for bids so spread the word and help this family out!

Okay, I have been back and forth to your blog three times because I am trying to muster up the strength to get through this post.

This is truly an amazing story and an incredible woman. The story is so-o sad and I I hope the best for them. Do you know them at all?

Tanja - I don't know them. I just came across them while "blog jogging" and was moved by their story.
