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. ❤️
It was announced on Tuesday that Foles will miss time for personal-reasons, probably family related, which turns out to be correct. Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick and his family.” And there is no timetable for his return.
Anyway, in the Instagram post, Foles‘ wife states that she went into labor after fighting a virus, and noticed something wasn’t right. They then realized the baby was miscarried. “Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a ‘virus’ of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong.” She then stated, “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.”
Foles was drafted by the Eagles in the 2012 NFL Draft. His first start was in 2012 before ending the season with six touchdowns, five interceptions, and 1,699 yards. The following season in 2013, Foles was selected to the Pro Bowl after throwing 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions. Today, Foles is widely regarded for his infamous, underdog Super Bowl run in Philly during the 2017-postseason.
