A Book is a Book & A Life is a Life

As the arguments continue in the United Kingdom about Healthcare & the NHS long hours, not enough pay and lack of appreciation for the professionals.  Today I want to thank the Doctors & Nurses who saved my life more than 50 Years ago at St. Marys Hospital in London.

I was no bigger than a hand  and nutured in the intensive care department, only weighing as much as a sugar packet, no nails, no hair just surrounded by tubes until I could go home weighing 5 lbs.

We didn’t have to think about private healthcare.  I wasn’t surrounded by the press or photographers like all the British Royalty born in the same hospital.  That didn’t matter, my mother was going to have a baby and that is where I was born, no problem about gender, religion, status, or economic affordability.

A child is a gift, a combination of two to make one and the cycle continues …….

I have three – what about YOU?
