  1. What a stunning, intense story! Held a fist in my gut beginning to end. I’ll keep thinking about it. This is not the kind of tale one can forget.

    You did it again. Described a moment so well it made me flush with the heat of fear, too. I’ve had a couple of those moments and it was a couple too many. So glad it turned out okay.

    Sweet photos.

    I often make myself glaze over these types of instances – when my babies were born too early, when a lifeguard had to pull my child out of the pool, when my good friend nearly died from an infection after given birth. It’s like some part of brain won’t allow me to get too emotionally involved, but I DO start acting like a raging bitch when the fear takes over.

    I’m glad she’s okay. 🙂

    Scary. So scary. (In 2005 Andrew emailed me from South Africa, where he was doing his semester abroad, to tell me how he had just been held up at knifepoint in downtown Durban. I had to go lie down for a few minutes.)
