Yes, this is true, because when she did the cartoons that said Elly was pg when Micheal and Elizabeth were like, 12 and 10 or so, I wrote her and said "pleeeeze could Elly have a homebirth" and went on to relate our UC in 1989...well, I got a lovely letter back from Lynn, the author/cartoonist and she said, "well, just wait and see what comical turn awaits, and winked. She even drew a picture of Elly on the end of the letter. I still have it, in my hardback copy of "For Better or For Worse", and it is one of my prized possesions. And as you know, Elly had April before John could get home from the office. There was a snowstorm and Connie, the nurse, lived right next door. She came over and helped. So basically Elly had almost a UC!
