A circle

It is hard to wait for my first pre-natal visit with Gladys. Last time I was pregnant I looked forward to it in happy anticipation. I had secretly hoped to find twins, but when the news was bad it was terribly sad. My dear friend Denise was there too, it is not usual for a patient to have two doctors, two friends at the bedside when hearing such bad news. I remember that day. So sad about the loss, but also a feeling of agony, anticipating the long wait until I would be expecting a baby again. Never in my wildest dreams would have I imagined a broken arm and hip surgery would come before another baby.
