... at least in some places. I am not happy because this weekend I'll be digging deeper into my finances and listing pro's and con's of some difficult options.
Anywho, the baby from the last post was born safe and sound Tuesday night (sigh of relief!).
Why I need to read about fetal mortality rates I'll never understand but this blurb was bothersome, only because it starts at 20 weeks. My son was born 1 hour and 25 minutes before the magic cutpoint of 20 weeks where the little ones start to "exist" to more people (like researchers). Not like he would have been counted as a fetal death or stillbirth in any traditional sense since it was not spontaneous. But I have also have a problem with stillbirth research and the issue of termination. Stillbirths with certain fatal and serious conditions will be underestimated because some will be terminated prior to a spontaneous death. Of course I tried to discuss this with the stillbirth research group in my building soon after my pregnancy ended but got too teary eyed to speak rationally. And spontaneous late losses need to be studied too.
I'm just ranting. Rather incoherently at that. When are things going to improve? Do you know things have gotten so strange that I am now able to start a co-pay tab at my therapists office. I'm out of money but I guess they don't want to see me not having therapy so I can pay it later. I have stopped drinking, but an out of control bar tab sounds much more exciting and glamorous than a huge therapy tab!
I hope the sun is shining on you all!
