On Pain, Remembering and Living Courageously in 2015

Repost of Blog by The Mogul Mom

The doctors said she mustn’t go to the wedding on the weekend. Her platelet count had dropped for the third time and they couldn’t explain why.

This time she had to stay in hospital, they said, for her own and her baby’s safety.

It was a Wednesday when Maria told me all this: how serious things were, and how disappointed she was about missing her cousin’s wedding. She said she felt mostly fine, although her back was aching. She thought she’d get her husband to buy her a swiss ball, hoping that might help, but I told her to send him round to my place and borrow mine instead.

She admitted she was scared.
