I had to go to the store to get some cold meds for John and I ran into a friend of mine from when I was a little kid. We were bestfriends up until I started dating Stan about 4 years ago. She didnt like Stan and so we slowly drifted apart. I saw her today and she didnt look like she was feeling well so I asked her what was wrong. She said she that her baby died a month ago and that seeing me pregnant just brought back bad memories. It had some thing that causes their skulls not to close up enough. Or something like that. Something to do with the skull. It was a baby girl named Elisabeth. I started crying because I felt so bad for her. I kept thinking what if something like that happened to Lava Girl. I would be heart broken! The baby lived a week. I guess most babies dont live more then a few hours or are stillborn. She showed me a pic and the babies head was hugely swollen and looked bruised. I dont know how she can possibly handle that. She told me that she was just glad she had the time she had with her because at least she got to spend a week with her. Some people dont even get that. She must be a much stronger person then me. She's only 19 too. I dunno it just broke my heart. Knowing that happened to her and I wasnt even there for her. I came home and just cried even more to John. How can someone deal with that?
