“After 16 weeks gestation”
There is a lot of argument about “When does life begin” ?  It would seem to be pretty hard for

anyone to ar Emily 16 weeks Emily & Dad 16 weeksgue that a baby at 1Emily 10  weeks outside the womb0Little Emily after 10 weeks amongst us.

ttl6 weeks gestation “is just a blob of tissue” based on what the scientific community knows today about the development of a baby at 16 weeks:

– The body is fully formed, the fingers and toes have fingerprints & nails.
– Is about 5 inches long and weighs  about 3 ounces.
– The baby is moving about: may grasp for the umbilical cord , suck it?s thumb, and  make facial expressions
– The heart & circulatory system and the urinary tract are fully functioning. and the blood is pumping through these tiny veins
– The baby is inhaling and exhaling the amniotic fluid through the lungs.
-The eyes are in the proper position, and the baby can see straight ahead & blink his/her eyelids.
– The genitals have formed. In the case of a girl, the uterus has already developed and the ovaries are in the proper place.
– Umberto Castiello, University of Padova, Italy  reported unborn babies have the ability to interact as early as 14 weeks into the pregnancy: “We conclude that performance of movements towards the co-twin is not accidental: already starting from the 14th week of gestation twin fetuses execute movements specifically aimed at the co-twin.”

Aie Calypso!!

John Denver and Cousteau    Cousteau

Calypso by John Denver  It is just one of those songs that throws my into a depressive state.  As they rollic along across the seas I realize I missed my place somewhere.  There is not a day nor hour; week nor year which had a huge “X” where I made a wrong turn.

As Captain Cousteau drives men and ship on the eternal quest for knowledge I just feel I missed some little sign where, should I have followed, a bright flashing career would have ensued.  I regret not the life I have taken; indeed I am proud of my family and myself; no, rather it seems there could have been more.

I was challenged so few times mentally, physically, spiritually.  Perhaps that road led to failure, disaster.  Or not.  The question is what might have been.

It is not as if I intentionally ignored my true path.  There were just so many turns, corners, unmarked pathways, and they all led to some destination missed.  Would one have led me to blaze new trails, ignite me with terrific opportunities, or created through me a landmark of new human understanding.

It is one of those feelings…your stomach turns a little, your heart thumps a bit harder, and perhaps most of all, it make you thing and evaluate your complete life experience.
