My heart is very heavy as I write this. Last night was very hard, and bitter sweet as we had two moms in labor. Roxie finally went into labor very early this morning and delivered one stillborn baby. She had obviously lost it weeks ago as the baby was not even fully developed yet. That is why she had not gained any more weight these last few weeks. She is very upset and really grieving. My heart just breaks….I know she will be back to normal in a few days, but the process is so hard….
In the midst of dealing with that in the wee hours of the morning, Topaz began active labor. She is still in the early stages and it could still be 24 hours or more, but this is her first litter, so she is nervous and not quite sure what to do, so obviously doesn’t want me to leave her side…..reminds me of the days I was up with sick children and rocking the night away….only somehow losing sleep isn’t as easy as it was when I was younger!
All is quiet right now and everyone is settled in, but we are trying to gear up for Topaz’s litter. I think she will be a great mom….just can’t wait for them to be here!
I will post any news as I can…..
