Last night, a dear person in my life scared the bejeebers out of me. She has been carrying a blighted ovum for a full trimester and her body finally decided to give it up yesterday. Which is hard enough to deal with for all of us, but we worried for a while that we might lose her as well.
Thank God, we didn't. Man, nothing like hearing one of your best friends slurring words and nearly incoherent while she asks you to come take care of her kids to make you hit your knees in earnest.
