And Here We Go Again

Now begins what I hope will be seven months of daily worry. Once again, I am not overly pleased with C's announced pregnancy. And no, for those who don't know, I am not being a horrible person. Please, read here to understand my complete and total trepidation. Since that post, there are a couple of updates. First, the seventh grandchild was full-term and she is doing fine. Second, the "All of C's children--except for the stillborn, of course--are healthy and fine." is not correct. Her son was diagnosed as a high-functioning autistic. He is quite well, but is very much a handful. Bringing in another child into the mix just isn't going to make anyone's life any easier.

Once again I will ask those who are so inclined to keep C and her unborn child in your prayers. At the very least, please send good thoughts out into the universe. I'm sure you will hear more than you ever wanted to about this pregnancy over the next few months.

oh, boy. I hope everything goes well for your daughter and the baby. She has a lot of guts to go through with more pregnancies after what she's been through.

I'm not exactly sure how I would describe her attitude: whether or not she is seeking attention--as someone suggested--or not, I think she is being all kinds of selfish. There was no thought--at least it doesn't seem like it--to her health, the possible health of the baby, or the well-being of the rest of her kids. I just don't see any logical thought-process going into this decision--and that does NOT sit well with me.

Thanks, Sue. I'm STILL trying to process.
