"There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I am likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You have me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful." Little jelly bean, you gave me a forever within the numbered days and I'm grateful. I'm grateful for the time we got together and even more grateful for the time I will get when I finally get to hold you. I love you forever, even longer than our little infinity. Shout out to @leocryptkeepertattoos at #hybridtattoova for hooking me up as usual. I can't wait to finish this.

Miscarriage is rarely talked about despite being a common type of loss. According to BabyCentre Canada, there’s a one in five chance of having an early miscarriage, meaning in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Late miscarriages can occur until approximately 24 weeks of pregnancy, but they are less common and only occur in about one in 100 pregnancies.
