Our sweet Fitzgerald left us very early this a.m. to join our other beloved pup Mickey. We got Fitzy to be a companion for Mickey when I was pregnant with my second child. We were worried about him losing some of the attention to the kids. Fitzy and his sister Daisy, who belongs to my sister Erin’s family, arrived in the middle of the summer in 2005. We had moved into a new home and everything was in dissaray, as is often the case when a family is about to grow. I had a much tougher first trimester with my son and was just so tired trying to get our daughter to sleep in her bed and just go to sleep generally. This was the long days/short years period of our lives. The first ones anyway. This dog won our hearts pretty quickly though. He was so gentle and patient. We nearly lost him when he chased after a deer across a highway and was hit by a car but he came back strong and after that we called him “our miracle pup.” And that’s who he remained until about 2:00 a.m. today. He wasn’t feeling great after Christmas and before we left for my birthday trip to Argentina. He had a tumor on his neck that suddenly quadrupled in size. We thought he might not be around when we got home but he waited for us, the little gentleman that he always was. He underwent emergency surgery to remove the tumor on Wednesday and they removed more cancer once they opened him up. He was already pretty weak but the surgery took it out of him and his bloodcount continued to plummet. I spent the afternoon with him yesterday and came home thinking we’d give him the weekend to see if he could rally but by 10:30 last night, it was clear that his condition had worsened and he was having trouble breathing. We drove up to see him with the kids so they could say goodbye and then we let him go. He was peaceful and comfortable in the end. I miss him so much.
Missing our lake life in Patagonia Sud but bringing it home and commited to slowing down a lot in 2019. Wishing you all the same. 🙏🏽
New Day. New Year. New Age. Thanks for the Birthday wishes and thank you for your exquisite beauty, Argentina. #SummerinPatagonia

Devastated over the loss of this man. The most handsome. The funniest. The one and only. Oribe.
Old friends are the best friends. Loved catching up with my travel companion from bygone days. We have been to El Salvador, Greenland, Madagascar, Tanzania, Montana and up and down the state of California. Now, adding New Mexico to our list. I have missed our talks over Moose Drools and being your sometime favorite subject ; ) #KurtMarkus Thanks for the 📷 @kmblodgett
When you get caught in the rain in midtown and it’s the Holiday Season! 🎄🎄🎄
With #TedWomen kicking off this week, I’ve been reflecting on my experience last year presenting at @tedwomen 2017. I have been a global maternal health advocate since becoming a mother in 2003 but speaking on the Ted stage about the maternal health crisis in the United States was terrifying. 🙈 Still, I stand by every word that I wrote, (and read) and for all the efforts I have made over the years, recounting my birth story and sharing countless stories of other mothers to raise awareness about the challenges and opportunities in maternal health - all to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere. If anything in this talk surprises, inspires, saddens or outrages you please join @everymomcounts to do something about it. Link in bio. #givingbirthinamerica
