Read below for full story. So thankful for this family right here and miss having them right down the street! Our weekend together was not quite as planned, but blessed by their presence and the help they provided us with an unexpected set of circumstances that nick and I suddenly found ourselves in. As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby. Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a “virus” of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy. To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process. Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood. The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true. We’ve endured some unique challenges as a couple so far, but never quite knew what something like this felt like and now we do. We have so much compassion and sensitivity to those who have gone through a miscarriage at any point and in any circumstance. We know they all happen very differently. We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss. This will take time. Thank you Taylor family for being here this weekend. We had a pretty fun weekend planned, and it was turned upside down, but God knew we needed you. ❤️

ORIGINAL STORY: Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will be out of the Jacksonville Jaguars' offseason program indefinitely after the team excused him for personal reasons.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday there is no timetable for Foles to return. Marrone offered "thoughts and prayers" to Foles and his family, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media suggested Foles could return as soon as the end of the week.
Could be back by the end of the week but his absence is open-ended right now. https://t.co/rg27Xd8pYM— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) May 28, 2019
There was no immediate indication about the reason for Foles' absence.
This offseason, Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract in Jacksonville after leading the Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory and another playoff run in 2018-19.
The Jaguars are thin at quarterback behind Foles, whose snaps will go to Tanner Lee, Gardner Minshew and Alex McGough during his absence.
