Yesterday I walked down the long hospital connector and came to the place where I had checked in many times to watch the miracle of life begin outside the womb. A walk that has become routine to me into a place of joy and happiness. To a place where a baby takes his first breathe, where families grow and celebrate a new addition.
We passed the door to the maternity unit and headed for the heart and vascular care unit instead. While we were going to celebrate a life of a special woman, we were also going to say goodbye, at least for our time here on Earth.
