When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a rare complication at 24 weeks. I had a placental abruption that placed my life and my child’s life at risk, and I had to remain in the hospital on bedrest until my child was born. I had no idea that this was the beginning of a 12-week stay in the hospital.

Want to know a control freak’s nightmare? 2020. Every Type-A person in the world right now probably feels like someone who mapped out their life using perfectly-placed LEGO pieces- and then found out their foundation was a trampoline.
A few giant bounces (read: global pandemic) and the “plan” is suddenly popping around like a thousand bright cubes in the air.
If there is one thing COVID-19 has revealed, it is the frailty of our plans, our bodies, our society,...
