Details about Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan
Surviving Savannah by Patti Callahan – For all of my thirty-two years, my mom, Harriet Winthrop, had told the story over and over to anyone who’d listen. I could recite her words verbatim; I’d been told them since my memory began. A tale worth telling, she would say when I rolled my eyes as she launched into the story.
“There I was, my darling, only in the beginning of labor. I decided to take a long, warm bath before your daddy drove me to the hospital.” Here Mom would laugh and shake her head, pat her hair in place. “The pain was so mild, I thought sure I had hours to go with you tucked warm inside me.”
