when you lay

when you lay..
with your little boy
4 hours after a CT scan
its very different..

..when you put him to sleep
you suddenly notice..
in the dim fading light
how long and beautiful
his eyelashes are...
how soft his limp hand
is against your lips..
his scent...massages
your very soul..
and you forget..
for a moment
..the agonizing wait
for results...

David,

May the little boy have a complete refuah for all that ails him.

May you receive a b'surah tova when you receive the CT scan results.

So many people, with so much tzar.

May we all see yeshuois speedily in our days.

V'nomar...

This is a very beautiful poem. It reminds me of times when I felt strongly my children's fragility.

Good News...
The lung nodule that was on my x-ray..simply was not there on the cat scan!
There were some other troublesome spots...but could have easily been caused by pneumonia..which I have apparently..so I'll need another cat scan in 3 months...

But let me tell you something..reading up on this online..made me so thankful that I don't smoke..
Reading page after page about..how "if you're a smoker..the chances of it being cancer are tenfold.." etc...
