28. February 9th, 1776

Sorry for not keeping up with my journal or writing as long entries. Life has been so busy . Every day the doctor or doctor’s assistant has come. Today the main doctor came. All of us kids have been ushered outside. Normally all of my siblings go down to the lake. But I sat on the bench underneath the tree by Mother’s room, as they began the walk.


I silently watched from the corner of the window. But, instead of seeing Father, I saw Mother was sitting on the bed. I watched, worried, as the doctor examined Mother. She couldn’t possibly be getting sick, too, could she? I noticed she was feeling weaker every day, but I never really put the pieces together. I definitely didn’t expect her to be becoming ill. “So, what is the verdict?” Mother asked after a little while. I bit my lip. The doctor spoke, and I remember his exact words. “It looks like your children are going to have a new brother or sister.”
