    I have been to see my consultant today and all is well with baby and I.

    However, I had some awful news whilst there.

    My carer (the lovely lady who does my blood pressure and passes me tissues) and has looked after me with all the pregnancies has been tragically killed. She is only 42 and her and her husband were knocked down whilst on their bikes. The driver was using her mobile phone and has been arrested.

    Her husband has survived and they have 3 children aged 12, 18 and 21.

    Please can you hold them in your thoughts.

    How sad - that is just awful!! I hate people driving and talking/texting on their mobiles at the same time. IMO if you can afford to drive a car, you can afford a bluetooth headset or a handsfree car kit.

    Thinking of her family - and you hun!!

    :hugs:

    How tragic :(
    People think the rules don't apply to them and it leads to such sad consequences.
