Often times I’ll be at events solo and someone will ask what B is up to. I’ll rattle off the standard response: “He’s at the hospital.” Pretty standard sentence, I should say, in my life. However, as a med-wife I forget the reason most people would be at the hospital. Which is why, despite finding […]

On Closure

My grandmother passed away on April 19th. She had fought a long and hard fight against cancer, and was at peace that it was her time. She raised ten kids, who had 23 kids of their own, who have had 25 kids of their own, so far. She had a memorable laugh, enjoyed white wine, […]
