Goodbye Nemo...

We lost what could have been our new son today. The Queen suffered a miscarriage last night. She appears to be recovering pretty well, but I already miss him - yes, I had been thinking of the fetus as a him. We had been affectionately calling him Nemo.

On April 1 we decided to play a joke on all you readers and announce we'd have a child in November and then mentioned that we were indeed posting on April 1 insinuating that it was an April Fool's joke. We intended to reveal our deception at the end of the month, but sadly, Nemo's time came first.

There are more details at the Queen's blog. I'm not sure just how much I can stand talking about it without becoming particularly emotional. Yeah, that's kinda hard to imagine, right?

Rest in Peace, Nemo.

Please accept our sympathies. Losing a family member, even a really young one, is always traumatic. Remember, you have many friends whose thoughts and prayers are with you.
