The Power Of Positive Thinking, Being Deployed In Full Force Today

June 24, 2008

In to the doctor today, for Jasper’s test results. All of my energies are directed toward willing the doctor to say ‘it was nothing. He’s fine.’

He WILL be fine. He WILL.

Say it with me.


UPDATE: He is fine. He’s fine he’s fine he’s FINE. His little hips, his little legs, and – most important of all – his little spine: all are fine.

Thank you all so much for virtually holding my hand today. Thank you so much.

    To quote Al’s pediatrician:

    “Yes, we’re going to need to check some things out, but anyone can see that you’ve got a healthy little boy right there.”

    He WILL be fine!

    Dan June 24, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    I am very very happy for you….
    Congradulation on an absolute good news!

    Syko June 24, 2008 at 6:57 pm

    Oh, I am so glad he’s fine! Now you can go on with healing and maybe eating again and loving those two fantastically beautiful children you have…not to mention that hot husband.

    Sometimes the medical establishment is frightening in its intensity. My daughter went through a situation similar to yours when pregnant with her second, after a routine 4th month blood test, the nurse from the doctor’s office called to inform her that the tests showed her baby had either spinal bifida (sp?) or Down syndrome. Major hysteria. For weeks and weeks – waiting to do the amnio, waiting for the amnio results – and Daniel was just fine. In fact he wins awards in school for everything from “most rounded citizen” to band line, never stops talking and you need a dictionary to understand him. All that fright for nothing. It’s a shame, but I suppose better than waiting for things to develop badly. Maybe.

    Was it my “He’ll be fine” that pushed it over the edge and created a miracle?
