It was during the recent trauma – and closeness – of our vigil with Ellie during her week in hospital with ‘the pox’.
She slept a lot of the time, day & night, due to her illness & the medication she was taking. She’d just recently awoken, & we were doing ordinary things, like watching children’s TV or videos, & chatting.
We got to talking about our being in hospital when she & Jake were born, when out of the blue she said:
“Doctors make babies, don’t they?”
