She wasn’t prying. I’m in a medical situation, getting a drug, and she had to ask about my past medical history. Pre-eclampsia, with long-term minor kidney damage and very mild hypertension, the fact they gave me a ton of blood, my platelets crashed, that matters when you are getting a monoclonal therapy.
She’s 21 weeks pregnant.
We went through the history. She asked if my baby is ok now.
I told her that he was fine and staying with his dad this week.
There is no need for general confession. It was a lie, I know that. I suppose it was a sin, but it was a kindness too.
All the same, I lied about someone I loved. For all the right reasons.
