And Then, There Was Monday

April 20, 2009

Emilia is going to be okay. Last week was full of worry – she was so sick, and in pain, and doctors could only guess that it was something either totally mundane or wholly terrible and all we could do was keep her comfortable and watch and wait to see if the scariest symptoms would worsen or abate – so full of worry and fear and all those bad things and I could not write (I would not, I should not? The distinction became unclear) and all there was to do was wait.

So we waited. And the symptoms abated over the weekend and the light came back into her eyes and so into ours and phew.

Now I just need to give my head and heart a shake and repeat to myself like a mantra: life is good the world is good things are GOOD. And maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to write again.

    Sounds really scary. Glad things are looking up.

    So glad to read that things are better for your daughter. I’ve been there… I know the fear and the worry. When my son was really, really sick and in CHEO I didn’t even want to talk to my friends, let alone write anything on my blog or on facebook.

    Jill April 20, 2009 at 9:38 am

    I’m so glad to hear that! Wonderful news!!

    Mommy Melee April 20, 2009 at 9:41 am

    I’m so relieved. I’ve been thinking about you a lot.

    FishyGirl April 20, 2009 at 9:47 am

    What a relief. I am so glad she’s doing better, and thusly that you are.

    K.Line April 20, 2009 at 9:50 am

    Oh, thank goodness! (Finally a Monday that is categorically good, despite the miserable weather…)

    Janet April 20, 2009 at 9:51 am

    Sweet relief.

    I’m going to borrow your mantra.

    Mrs.Chattypants April 20, 2009 at 9:58 am

    Glad to hear all is well! And I too will repeat your mantra.

    sashalyn April 20, 2009 at 9:59 am

    thank goodness.

    hugs all around.

    Kat April 20, 2009 at 10:00 am

    I’m glad that you girls are okay. I was wondering where you had been.

    I’ll be looking for your post tomorrow!

    A very good mantra. I’m so glad the light is back in Emilia’s eyes (what a beautiful way to put that!) – I hope she’s up, feisty, and enjoying the spring sun.

    Joy April 20, 2009 at 10:18 am

    I am so relieved that Emilia is getting better. So relieved. Take your time to breathe, and smile, and discover again that the world is good. I look forward to reading in the not too distant future. Enjoy your day! :)

    Anna Marie April 20, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Karen April 20, 2009 at 10:38 am

    so very, very glad.

    Adelas April 20, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Heaved a HUGE sigh of relief before hitting the comment link, but now that the sigh is out, I don’t have anything to say.


    Wendy April 20, 2009 at 10:44 am

    I’m so relieved your girl’s going to be OK. I’ve been worried for you both.

    LAVANDULA April 20, 2009 at 10:44 am

    Mary@Holy Mackerel April 20, 2009 at 10:58 am

    PHEW is so right. Been there, done that waaaay too many times. Glad things are getting better.

    sarah April 20, 2009 at 11:00 am

    So glad to hear it. With all the awful news lately re Maddie and Thalon and illness, this must have been extra scary for you. Welcome back!

    lettergirl April 20, 2009 at 11:01 am

    So relieved and grateful to hear it.

    Don Mills Diva April 20, 2009 at 11:01 am

    Thank God.

    Phew, indeed!

    Angella April 20, 2009 at 11:02 am

    I’ve been praying for you guys. So very, very happy she is better.

    Sherry April 20, 2009 at 11:04 am

    I’m so relieved that she’s better now.

    Angela April 20, 2009 at 11:07 am

    What a relief! It must be strange to have so many virtual strangers (or maybe “virtual” friends is more correct) worried about your daughter. But there it is.

    Poor little thing, even if it was “just” the stomach flu I know just how horrible that can be. I was hospitalized for 5 days with that last fall. (Along with my husband who followed a few days later, leaving my sick 2 year old home for first time ever overnight with grandparents.) It was horrible.

    Hope she’s feeling 100% soon.

    Issas Crazy World April 20, 2009 at 11:10 am

    Glad to hear an update. Hope she is back to normal very soon.

    Cecily April 20, 2009 at 11:23 am

    I am so damned relieved and happy for you. Thank goodness.

    Mommato2 April 20, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Oh, that is great news….have been checking back in frequently to make sure everything is o.k. xoxo

    Amy April 20, 2009 at 11:50 am

    One of the worst things ever is when a child with spirit has some of it dwindle in sickness. As a parent it makes me sick. Glad the sparkle is back.

    ScientistMother April 20, 2009 at 11:54 am

    Gosh, you must be so relieved. It’s so scary when a child is ill, particularly with all you’ve been through with your family and friends recently. Take care of you, and of yours.xx

    EarnestGirl April 20, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    My husband’s long-lived, spry, golf-playing, missed nothing grandmother’s mantra was similar: If you have your health, you have everything.

    Glad glad glad your girl is bright again.
