61. This just makes me beyond angry.

My mother died in childbirth. Eclampsia, with my brother. He lived. It was a Catholic hospital. There are all kinds of secrets that people have alluded to (family friends who were nurses, doctors, at the time - it was an error, not sure what that means, whether it was intentional or not) but I have always wondered.

These people tell me about it at cocktail parties when they are drunk, but they say they will never say anything until after my father dies. i am not sure what that means either. It infuriates me that nobody will tell me what really happened, but my feeling is that she didn't really have to die if the doctors had been doing their jobs. (I sometimes get the feeling that they had to make a choice._) Anyway, her obstetrician moved away to Florida (we are from NY) after her death because of it. I get the feeling like there was some kind of malpractice, but nothing was ever proved and my Dad was so devastated he never took them to court.

So, the bottom line is that this shit just enrages me. I know that it had something to do with the fact that men were making the decisions about her life and consequently, she lost it. She left a little 2 year old girl and an infant without a mother. A young man without his beloved wife. A heartbroken family without their sister, their daughter, their niece, their cousin, etc. How on earth does that f**ing help a family. I would really like to know. I would like one of these Fucktard Republican asswipes tell me how my life is better without my mother.

This is an issue that is very personal to me. Sorry for the rant.
