A friend of mine is trying to contact Fr. Virtue, author of Mother and Infant: moral theology and motherhood. She has been unable to locate any contact information for him. If anyone has any ideas, please leave a comment or email me and I will pass it on to her. This has to do with a few projects, one of which might turn into a book eventually.
Miscellany: February 2005 Archives
Tonght we ate the last of the meat based leftovers in the fridge in preparation for 40 days without. It is something that we decided years ago to do as a family. We finished the meal with crepes - must eat pancakes on pancake Tuesday.
After dinner I picked up one of our 4 cats and I realized that he was ill - took him to the emergency vet and, as I suspected, his bladder is blocked. So he is in the hospital tonight getting a catheter placed and getting started on medications. These things never happen during normal office hours, no, they happen late at night. Please pray that he recovers quickly - the other cats keep looking for him!
On call tomorrow for Ash Wednesday - I am hoping that I will be able to slip out for an evening Mass. One never knows, though, and we have several moms due this week.
Look for a post sometime soon where I explain my remark about 'most cesareans become necessary by the time they are done'. I do think that we have way too many cesareans in this country, but it is overly simplistic to lay blame on any one group of persons. Last night was our quarterly journal club - we discussed the movement towards elective primary cesareans. Very heated discussion ensued. More on that later, also.
