Two weeks ago we had our second rendezvous with a dermatologist for M’s red spot. All the doctors  – not dermatologists – we spoke to said the there would be a possibility that the red spot, actually broken veins, could also be affecting her eye which would  mean glaucom and her brain which would mean epileptic fits. So we checked eyes and her brain. All test were negative. But still the fear that there is something hiding in M was still present.

So we went to this dermatologist at Hospital Reine Fabiola who is a specialist in that field. Her first words were actually: “It’s nothing serious. And as all the tests turned out to be negative don’t worry. I really don’t quite understand why all the other doctors put you into that panic.”

Hearing her saying this was like giving us a licence for joy. And it took a load as big as the Mount Everest from my mind. It felt like I was freed from a doom. Suddenly lightness, thousands of butterflies. Pink clouds, smiling fairies hiding behind every corner, riding on unicorns. Words cannot describe the sudden relieve.

And now carpe diem. Every day! Every minute! Even when there’s no sunshine here in Brussels. M and I will shine throughout the whole world.
