My mother is dying. And now that I’ve written and edited and posted this, I’m going to go eat cake and read something light and airy. Oh, it’s late and I need to go to bed. Crap.

Finally wrote another book review, of the lovely, beautiful A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman.

It's really been a long time. I liked my last one better, of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but hey. One has to start again somewhere.

My essay came out in print today! \o/

As I’ve said before on Twitter, and now in this post, “speaking as a reader, because MOST of the book is NOT me, heh -- it's really good and I recommend it to anyone who's miscarried or struggled with infertility. Or anyone who knows anyone who has. So pretty much everyone."

Sorry, this is very very long. But here, have a pregnancy update.

Spoiler: I have a severe case of Cholestasis, making this another high-risk pregnancy. The details and specifics are different from person to person of course, but some of the feelings might be applicable to anyone with a high-risk pregnancy. Or other chronic conditions, for that matter.
