It's not over. There was a downblip where an upblip should have been on the EKG. Probably nothing, they said, the echocardiogram looked fine, but better to see the cardiologist next week. Cardiologist??? I applaud the cautious approach, soothe myself with logic, but really, WTF. He has a fever today, and the coughing has picked up as the daylight fades. I know he's a grown man, yet I just want to press my lips to his forehead, tuck him in, and read him story after story, the crease in my brow deepening as I watch his chest rise and fall.
