It was a quiet day for us today. I started out with a heavy heart and ended with an even heavier one. I know this is going to be a long journey with many ups and downs. It's only been 11 days, but today it feels like 11 months. I miss my husband. I miss what our life was before that horrible day. I fear what is to come for us in the next year. I worry that I won't get my Mark back. I worry that my girls won't get their daddy back. I miss my husband. I miss my husband.


  1. There always seems to be something to put something else in perspective. I think about you almost constantly in so many different ways and perspectives. All I have to offer you is my prayers, love and faith. I love you!

  2. Scarlet, my heart just aches for you. You have a disgustingly heavy load to bear and I'm sure you feel if you take one more breath you will break. But darlin', I'm afraid you're going to live through this. Just when you think a trial is going to kill you, you realize, "oh, crap, I'm actually going to have to live through this." You are going to make it. You are loved and prayed for more than you know.


  3. Scarlet, My heart aches for you and your little family! My thoughts are often with you and I am constantly sending good happy thoughts your way. You are in my prayers daily... It will be a long journey, but you will make it! Try to keep you head up and know that if you need to vent, there are many who would listen and offer many, many hugs and support. We love you!


  4. Scarlet hang in there girl! Good things are coming your way, I just know it!! Hugs!!!

  5. I think of you guys throughout each day. All of my children and Chip and I are all praying for you. It sucks when things are hard, huh? I don't usually like to use that word, but it fits. I know when I have had my moments with our sweet little Ash when I have felt like I can't possibly make it through or handle any more, somehow I do. I look back in amazement and realize that it was at those moments that angels were with me and the Lord was carrying me. Hang in there. I can't even imagine what you are going through. The only thing that has kept Chip and I going is having a sense of humor and I know you and Mark have got incredible senses of humor. Try to keep your chin up, we're thinking of you!

  6. Of course you do Scarlet, of course you do. You have been a rock for your family, protecting them from the stormy seas crashing upon your shores. It is ok to let others be a rock for you. I hope you are giving yourself opportunities to cry, to sob, to scream as loud as you can at the unfair nature of it all. You have been strong and faithful and I have no doubt you will continue to do so. The feelings inside you are complex and intense, you've got to let some of it out. It doesn't make you weak, it makes you wise to decompress. You can come to my house and do it, with all the kids and all the noise here it would probably go unnoticed. I am amazed by your strength and faithfulness. Please, what can I do more to help?

  7. Love you Scarlet! Your sweet family is literally on my mind constantly! I can't even imagine what your going through. This was one of my favorite quotes when I was pregnant with Easton..."We know not what lies ahead of us. We know not what the coming days will bring. We live in a world of uncertainty. For some, there will be great accomplishment. For others, disappointment. For some much rejoicing and gladness, good health and gracious living. For others perhaps sickness and a measure of sorrow. We do not know. But one thing we do know. Like the polar star in the Heavens, regardless of what the future holds, there stands the Redeemer of the world, the son of God, certain and sure as the anchor of our immortal lives. He is the rock of our salvation, our strength, our comfort, the very focus of our faith.
    Gordon B. Hinckley

  8. Scarlet, I just wanted to let you know that you are still in our prayers. I put your names on the prayer roll at the temple every time I go. I know you are feeling like this is never going to end but it will. You WILL get to go home!!! Keep your spirits up. We will keep praying for you!!!

  9. This breaks my heart!! I've been reading your blog every day since I found out about Mark! I've enjoyed hearing about his amazing progress and I can, of course, picture you and all these triumphs and the excitement around them!

    These hard days are going to come, like you said, the ups and downs, and they are going to be hard! But just know that so many people are PRAYING for YOU and Mark! PLEASE know this and have faith and hope in it. I don't think it'll make these days any easier, they'll still be hard. Yet in time things WILL get better! Your heavy heart will lighten!!

    Thinking about and praying for you all!!
    Love, The Woolery's
