Mimi has not died yet. She is septic and has had a heart attack, and the doctors have given her nothing except morphine for 36 hours, and yet she continues to hang on by her fingernails. Nobody is surprised.

My mother (who has not slept in those same 36 hours) told me in no uncertain terms not even to think about going to Denver. She told me to go to Reunion and take care of this baby. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. Bless my mother.

Saw the midwives today and heard the baby's heartbeat again. I don't get tired of that sound.
