JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After the wife of Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles revealed Wednesday that she suffered a miscarriage, support has poured in for the family.
Tori Foles posted a heartfelt message on Instagram, explaining that she had to labor and deliver the couple's 15-week baby boy after she contracted pneumonia that led to the miscarriage. The baby was the couple's second child.
More than 2,000 comments have been made on the post, including many from Jacksonville fans and from the Foles' previous NFL home: Philadelphia.
Tori's post to Instagram reads:
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. ❤️
On Tuesday, the Jaguars said Foles will miss organized team activities due to personal reasons. Foles was excused and the Jaguars didn't announce a timetable for his return.
The Jaguars tweeted, "Thoughts and prayers with the Foles family." Foles shared his wife's Instagram post on Twitter, saying he's grateful for all the support.
Tori has written a beautiful heartfelt post explaining what we have gone through this last week. We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers. 2 Cor 12:9
