Along with the hair issue

Rilkekind has an issue with his insides. Nothing too terrible, but he has to drink some yucky medicine and may need surgery in a year or two. To quote Bacon: He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune.

Sorry to hear about the possibility of surgery. My daughter came down with Kawasaki syndrome when we went to the states and it is very rare, so she had to spend far too much time in the hospital and she still feels a little bit of that terror everytime she has to go to the hospital. You might think about trying to investigate your options and trying to find the place that will make it easiest on rk.

And thanks for trying to calm things down, but don't worry, I said I was giving him the last word, so that's what I will do.

what an amazingly cute kid! sorry to hear about the surgery. But the hostage issue is real. You are bound to the future by amazing cuteness (and stunningly strong biological imperatives).

Thanks. We live next to a great hospital, and our pediatrics group seems highly competent, and some of his grandparents are pediatricians by training, and the insurance seems to be holding up, so we should be ok.

Best of luck.

Hostages for life. Or so it seems.

What popped into my head when I read that was the story of Joe Cic/pp/o. He was held hostage in Beirut by Hezbollah for 5 years or so -- 1986 to 1991. When he was released, some reporter asked him how he made it, mentally, and he told of his wife's love of roses, and his wish to take her to the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena. I guess we start with Azael's cuteness and biology, but then find a dream of a Pasadena of our own.
