a giant relief

Toronto, 2013.10.28

We went to see a paediatric neurologist today about an early diagnoses from the paediatric emergency doctors that Emma has a serious, progressive disorder. The specialist gave us the tremendous news that in fact it was nothing of the sort and that she has a relatively common fainting problem that comes from being surprised or crying too hard. We were so overwhelmingly relieved that as Mari put it: "Emma even feels lighter."

Yes, it's very welcome. Now I can get back to juggling the n other things on my plate.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

If I had my life to live over, I'd try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax, I would limber up, I would be crazier than I've been on this trip. I know very few things I'd take seriously any more. I'd certainly be less hygenic... I would take more chances, I would take more trips, I would scale more mountains, I would swim more rivers, and I would watch more sunsets. I would eat more ice cream and fewer beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones. Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd have many more of them, in fact I'd try not to have anything else, just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of my day. If I had it to do all over again, I'd travel lighter, much lighter than I have. I would start barefoot earlier in the spring, and I'd stay that way later in the fall. And I would ride more merry-go-rounds, and catch more gold rings, and greet more people and pick more flowers and dance more often. If I had it to do all over again - but you see, I don't.
