This last week has been a little crazy.
I've spent a good chunk of time sitting around dreary waiting rooms reading outdated magazines and recovering from my first root canal. Ouch. While sitting white-knuckled in the chair, the freezing did not take in one of my nerves. I actually felt the drill. Oh my god. I felt the drill. Double ouch.
In addition to my dental emergency, a routine physical examination on Ryan has revealed that his 5 year old heart has a murmur. We are awaiting a referral to a paediatric cardiologist to rule out congenital heart defects. Apparently this can be quite common (the murmur that is, not the congenital defects) and many people go on to lead healthy active lives. I was instructed to not jump to any conclusions.
For now, I'm choosing to see the glass as half-full.
How do you see your glass?
