Catching what I fished for...

The Fragility of Life -April 17

I could have lost a daughter in childbirth on Saturday.My daughter almost bled out when she lost a litre of blood  in a matter of seconds after an emergency C-section.Of course, in a modern hospital, an emergency team of no less than ten people, descended on her in the recovery room, whipped off all sheets and even her nightgown which upset her husband. He had to be dragged out and told why she was treated like a piece of meat, naked with doors left wide open to the public corridor....more

I don’t mean that they taught me how to cook, do laundry, and clean a bathroom (and if any of my siblings happen to be reading this: I do know how to do all of those things. I just often choose not to. So there). The most important lesson I learned is that you can’t take things back. If you put something out there, be prepared for somebody to have an opinion, and that it might be something that you don’t like....more
