A close friend was scheduled to come for a visit in late July. We'd been counting down her arrival for months. I had already bought a little card and propped it on her pillow. It was a congratulations card: "congratulations you are going to be an aunt!" As it happened, I found out we lost the heartbeat two days before her arrival.
I shredded the card and announced my devastating news to her over the phone instead. She needed to know the hornets nest she was walking into.
