The most memorable – and shocking – thing said to us when we were about to have Gabriel was a doctor who said, “At this stage I don’t recommend babies should be treated because the results are so bad. If you give birth after midnight, I’ll be the one who comes, but my heart won’t fully be in it.”

I was talking to another doctor yesterday about this, and he said, “Dear God, you were given a frontal cortex. Just because you think it doesn’t mean you say it.”

I had to go look up what the frontal cortex does. But I think I’m going to like this guy.
