Made of stone, heart of glass #Mondayblogs

21 years ago today, I was in intensive care. Concious, and actually, in good shape, just waiting for a transfusion. My daughter - who is also 21 today - had been delivered an hour or two before - and they'd nicked her placenta, and that created quite a serious bleed...
