Nick, I am so amazed at what you have been able to do in such a short time. And I am grateful to finally know. I imagine the baby was lost. i wonder why the report didn't mention it. We were told that she died of a ruptured varicose vein, but a pregnancy was never mentioned. Probably because we were children. Yes, it was very sad for those little girls. Interestingly enough, my other great grandmother died early of a childbirth related condition, too. So, both of my grandmothers lost their mothers at a young age. In fact the other grandmother was totally orphaned--both parents died 2 months apart. Again, thank you Nick--this is a miracle. Many many thanks---Sherri S.
