Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

Another Update

This one is not about me or William!

This one is for my friend C. the one I told you about with the hyster and all.

She called yesterday. She's doing alright. As best as can be expected.
She's on the roller coaster! She feels as though she had a triple whammy.
1st she lost her son, then she almost lost her life, then she lost the ability to carry a child of her own. They left her ovaries, which is a good thing of course.

She and her husband have opted to adopt. They had opted for that even before all of the other bad stuff happened.

She is strong, she will make it through the fire but not without some help. We will get together next week for lunch and a chat. Her boat is different than mine but she doesn't begrudge me what I may still be able to have. She is a caring, loving person who believes truly that everything happens for a reason and that there was a plan long before anything actually happened. She has her faith.

Thank you all for your kind words regarding C., I will pass them on to her when I see her.

I am so, so sorry for your friend. I hope her road to adoption isn't too long and painful. She is in my thoughts and prayers.

That is very hopeful, isn't it? Like g, I hope the road to adoption isn't too long and riddled with unachievable barriers.

CLC said...

I hope adoption works out for her. She's been through hell, and doesn't need any more pain.

You all are so kind! I will most definetly pass along all the good words! Thank you!

I am glad to hear she is doing better. Is it possible that b/c they left her ovaries maybe they can do surrogacy? Not that I have anything against adoption at all, I was just curious. Please let her know she is being thought of, alot.
