I had some medical testing, female variety, this morning. I had postponed it for as long as I could ~ one of many appointments cancelled in the aftermath of our son's death.
Lovely, young, vibrant technician: How many pregnancies? How many children?
Me, in the bathroom between tests, tears running down my face.
Driving home, thinking about the neighbors who became parents of triplets several years ago. Two of the babies died almost immediately. A couple at church lost all three of their triplets. A good friend has three children to show for six pregnancies. Gal, who writes so beautifully of her daughter's short life.
A lifetime ahead of questions. How many pregnancies? How many children?
