Oh so lucky

June 25, 2007

It seems like nearly every day I’m reminded of how lucky Alicea and I are to have a normal, healthy daughter.  There’s a dad at work who I was speaking with on Friday who’s daughter is repeatedly in the hospital with heart complications.  He was telling me of another family who’s 3 year old child’s longest stint outside a hospital has been 1 month.

I just came across a little article from The Seattle PI about a 13 year old who died today of a heart attack … complications from progeria, or accelerated aging.  There is a story (with a number of pictures) profiling Seth in 2004.  See http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/specials/seth/

So sad.
