Seven months of being pregnant,
driving from California to Oregon
for a Christmas family gathering.
"Take breaks more often, " Doctor said.
Still, it was 1,000 miles in distance.
When we arrived, I started the contractions,
went to the hospital in Salem.
"We have no equipment to care for
premature babies." Doctor said.
