5% Chance

May 18, 2010

“Have you been here before?” says the lady at the security desk as she takes my ID.

Yes, I’ve been here before.

She scrolls through her list of previous visitors.  “Oh, okay.”  She punches a few keys.  “Where are you going today?” she asks without a glance.


As the passes roll out of the printer, she smiles and asks, “Do you know how to get to Cardiology?”

Yes, I remember.

I remember.

    What is 5%? And why are you in cardiology again??

  2. 5% chance of another cardiac anomaly for subsequent siblings.

    VERY HAPPY to hear all is well. Even though I am no longer your immediate community, I rejoice with you and wish I could be closer during the suffering.
