A recent post on Nutsrok, one of my favourite blogs, reminded me of a story about what I call the straw that broke the camel’s back….
Years ago my 20 month old son had a bad cough that he could not seem to shake, so I took him to his pediatrician. The doctor checked my son out, then told me to take him to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) for further testing because he suspected asthma. I promptly burst into tears in front of the doctor, his receptionist, my son and a full waiting room.
I’m sure they all thought I was crazy, not to mention an unfit mother. What they didn’t know was that two days earlier I had suffered a second miscarriage, to add to the three stillbirths in my pregnancy history…
I have since written a book about my pregnancy woes entitled G9P3A3
