On the eve of my 36th birthday, instead of looking for a place to drink several Bloody Marys (my birthdays always include Bloody Marys, boats, and lobsters, not in any particular order), I would repeat the same question over and over in my head: “How does one celebrate one’s birthday with a new born?” In the middle of a global pandemic while coming to terms with a diagnosis of stage 4 metastatic triple-negative inflammatory breast cancer?”
