Nick Foles en deuil de son fils

Publié | Mis à jour

Le quart-arrière des Jaguars de Jacksonville Nick Foles et sa femme Tori vivent des moments difficiles après avoir perdu leur bébé lors d’une fausse-couche.

C’est la femme du joueur de 30 ans qui a expliqué ce que vit présentement le couple, mercredi, par le biais d’une publication Instagram.

«Comme plusieurs d’entre vous savaient, [j'étais enceinte] de 15 semaines de notre deuxième enfant, a indiqué Tori Foles sur Instagram. Tôt dimanche matin, après deux journées difficiles à combattre un virus, les contractions ont commencé et je savais que quelque chose n’allait pas. Peu après, nous avons appris que nous avions perdu notre garçon.»

«L’accouchement, et voir notre petit garçon, a été un processus assez dévastateur. Finalement, j’avais contracté une pneumonie. Les émotions vont et viennent, passant de l’immense tristesse à la confusion et à la colère. Et parfois, il y a cette forte conviction que Dieu a la situation bien en main (...).»

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. So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us. Also a heartfelt thank you to Baptist Beaches hospital staff in maternity. What an incredible team of doctors and nurses that took care of us the last 4 days. ❤️ 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. ❤️
