Time Moves Slowly But Passes Quickly


Time Moves Slowly But Passes Quickly:  This entry is about the weird way time works.  The older I get the faster time passes, until time stops! Then thankfully time starts passing quickly all over again.

May 11th 8 AM: I arrive in TAMUCC to pick up Lulu.  9 AM we are on the road home.  3:20 PM she meets her doctor for the first time.

May 12th 7:30 AM: blood work and other assorted tests to rule out cancer.

May 13th to 14th all hours: The weekend of quiet worry. Time moves to a halt.

May 15th morning: Distract ourselves. Around 3:30: Sonogram/ultrasound.  We are in Agony.

May 16th to 17th all hours: Try to believe everything is normal.  It’s nothing until it’s something! Nothing quick about time.  Moving like molasses.

May 18th: 11:30 AM. Arrive back at the doctor’s office and taken back immediately, given 3 options.  Lulu chooses the safest one.  Time picks up a beat.

May 19th to May 22nd: More waiting, more it’s nothing until it’s something.

May 22nd: Surgery scheduled for  June 2nd.  And now she waits. Time moves to a crawl.

May 24th: Slight change of plans  as the surgery is moved to May 26th.  Time becomes allegretto.  

May 25th: No Sleep Till Brooklyn … as the crescendo of time feels like a heartbeat in your ears!

May 26th 4:30 AM: In the quiet and still darkness, time is simply surreal.  As if hanging in mid air.

Throughout the day of May 26th until the present: My feelings poured from my soul in You Don’t Need An Ovary and No Judgment and She’s Alive.  Time defies definition.

A million lifetimes in 18 short days or 60 hours that felt like a matter of minutes.  I can only imagine what it feels like for the patient.  Tick, tock, tick tock.  Our sweet baby girl.  She continues to amaze me <3.

As always, more to come.

  1. Kids can be amazingly resilient. My son had open heart surgery when he was 5 days old. 2 weeks later he was home. 9 years later he has a clean bill of health and you’d never know there was anything wrong with him! Good luck to your little one and stay strong 🙂

    1. Wow! Only 5 days old. Medical technology is Truly amazing. And oh how enjoyable to read of the current antics of your young man and his brother! Adorable.
