All her life Rebecca Mader had loved children, she had loved interacting with babies and imagined dreaming of meeting the right guy and having a beautiful daughter. When she was 15 she already had her daughter's name picked out. "Mikayla Dawn". When Bex was was 33, she met and married Sean Maguire . They couldn't wait to raise their family together.....


3. The Possibility

Lana walks in just an hour later. She holds a clipboard in her hand and she beams with joy as she walks in. Her smile fades as she clears her throat.

“Dr. Kayne has ordered a pregnancy test. He also wished that I ask you a few questions.”

“I can’t be pregnant. You did a test yesterday.”

“No, I didn’t. But soon we are going to do one. You are to come in on Friday for surgery at six am. Alright now for the questions. Have you been having morning sickness? If so and for how long?”

“Yes, and for about two months.”

“Any abdominal pain.”

“I thought it was cramps but is just the cancer.”

“Any cravings?”


“Weight gain?”


“Loosing of sleep?”

“A few hours every three days.”

“Well, I’m going to draw some blood and send it down.”

“Sean said you had news.”

“When we went in to harvest the eggs, we found your uterine lining built up. A mass of cells was growing out. We don’t know what it was but it wasn’t cancerous.”

“I know what happens when a pregnant woman has cancer. If I am pregnant than that means a hysterectomy or surgery isn’t an option.”

“No, you’re the cancer specialist, I just specialize in fertility and gynecology.”

“I know what you’re major was Lana.”

“Well do you want to prick yourself, or should I?”


         I fix my arm so Lana can draw a vial of blood. Sean still stands in the corner watching. I hadn’t heard a peep out of him since he kissed me.

“Sean what’s wrong?”
“I’m just thinking about the possibility of you being pregnant.”

“If I am I could die.”

“Yeah, the cancer. I know. Just for years we’ve thought we couldn’t have kids but it was cancer and the possibility of you being pregnant now. Is wonderful.”

         Lana draws and blood and caps the vial. She kisses my cheek and silently leaves. We wouldn’t get results back for a few hours so I should probably take a nap and try to recover. I can’t fall asleep knowing that maybe just maybe in the depths of being cancerous I could conceive a child. If I was pregnant than they wouldn’t be able to get chemo or have a hysterectomy.

“It’s a miracle to think that I could be carrying our daughter. Our Mikayla Dawn.”

“Yes Bex, it is.”

         Sean kisses me and then climbs up into the hospital bed. He wraps his arms around me and we fall asleep together.
