No More Prawn
The postscript to my wife‘s pregnancy complications were that she had been precariously close to death because she had eaten too much prawn. Certain potent chemicals in prawn precipitate difficulties during delivery. We had not heard this because medical reports were following precedent by not preaching diet changes before research was finished. Prawn was also supposed to affect a person‘s posture, but predominant data did not confirm this so it would be precluded from the report. The medical practitioners said that she should have eaten more poultry.
This is what I told my wife as we drove home across the prairie. We lived a long distance away from the hospital in an area with a different prefix because we needed to be close to a special pottery school where I was studying. My predecessors had told me it would be risky to live so far from the hospital with my wife being pregnant. But I didn‘t think we had a choice. They portrayed several scenarios to prove to us that it would not be practicable for us to live so far away and taht there might be too many risks in getting my wife to the hospital. One was that her delivery would precede our arrival at the hospital. But this had not happened. There had been other complications.
But now she was okay and we knew that she shouldn‘t eat prawn if she was ever pregnant again. This was going to be hard, however, because prawn was my wife‘s favorite food.
