Speaking out

For your viewing and reading pleasure

(I will point out, I feel really rather awkward doing this)





Globe and Mail

Edmonton Journal

Edmonton Sun

There’s probably a few more kicking around, but that’s a good start.

One last note. You may, if you go searching for my name, run across a quote from me. The quote is being widely used by the Canadian Press, and it’s a perfectly fine quote, except for the part that is not even a bit fine. I gave the quote to a radio reporter, and she transcribed it.

It’s just that we all know, Mrs. Spit would never confuse you’re and your. Ever. I didn’t write that. Can’t emphasize it enough.

    The Toronto Star corrected the grammar in that quote. At least they proofread their wire stories before publishing!

    I am an occasional reader of your blog – and I spotted you on TV last night. WOW – well done. You have a brave face in your pain. Let’s hope this research works out.

    I came here via Debby’s blog and have just watched the clip on your first link. I cannot express how sorry I am for your loss but you did that just so so well. My cousin developed pre-eclampsia with her first baby. Both survived thanks to the doctors and God, but she was nearly full term. I don’t know if that helps. They took every precaution with her subsequent 2 pregnancies and the babies were healthy. Can’t remember all the details but know the whole family was just so so worried. It was many years ago but her problem developed so very quickly and it was a big emergency.

    Mrs Spit you were so very brave to do this and if it helps raise the awareness it will be a boon for those families. I hope it helps for you too.

    Love to you and your husband Barb

    bravo and kudos to you, mrs. spit, for sharing your story and gabriel’s.

  11. debby says:

    Well done, Mrs. Spit. And really, there is no way to prevent your words from winding up as some newspaper’s typo. I see they also got your name wrong.

    *rolls eyes*

    Mrs. Spit, you and the Mr. did a great job.

  12. Barb says:

    ooooh. I would be SO upset about that as well. I wouldn’t be able to abide a “their” and “there” or an “its” and “it’s” mix up either. 🙂

  13. Barb says:

    ooooh. I would be SO upset about that as well. I wouldn’t be able to abide a “their” and “there” or an “its” and “it’s” mix up either. 🙂 By the way. I wrote it on Jen’s blog, but you are amazing.

  14. Just wanted to say that you are an amazing person and your courage and strength to endure what appears unendurable to others is an inspiration. Virtual hugs to you and Mr Spit from the other side of the planet. xx R

  15. Barb says:

    Congratulation Mrs and Mr Spit.

    That was very brave of you both. Very. And you both look fabulous.

    How very exciting!! You are amazing – the baby loss world is lucky to have you as a voice.

    Internet speed in my hotel is pitiful – I can’t wait to get back home and watch the videos!
