Is this my kid?

He is his father’s child.

In possession of the calm-no-matter-the-circumstance sort of way that is stable and solid.

His voice on the phone did not even waver as he said “Mama, I can’t see anything out of my left eye“.

I had to ask if he was serious, such normal tone and timbre.

He was serious and {after a frantic call to the pediatrician and a speedy drive where this claustrophobic mother parked in a parking garage!!} we spent several hours in the ER yesterday and had a visit to an opthalmologist today and an appointment with a cardiologist in the coming weeks.

And through it all, he remained calm.  Even when words like “brain tumor” were being thrown around, all he said was “wow mom.  I hope it’s not that“.

And me {aka the high strung spaz} was thinking “DUH!”  And asking {several times a minute} “what do you see“? “do you see anything yet“?

Poor kid.

If I hadn’t shown my ID and had a matching hospital bracelet I do believe no one would have believed he was my kid.

Particularly after his {look a like} daddy arrived and they were both calm together.

Then, tonight, at dinner my little boy with the half mustache said “every day I wake up and can see I am going to be so thankful“.

That is MY boy.

The fact that I wrote about this just the day before is not lost on me but the enemy can shove it where the Son don’t shine!

And just so you don’t freak out, right now Matt has been diagnosed with complex migraines and the appointment with the cardiologist is to rule out a heart condition he is at risk for because of my medical history.  All is well.


  1. Praise God that is wasn’t the other thing.
    Isn’t it awesome to have a child that knows how to praise and be thankful!!
