Ambulance Chasing

Last week my wife dropped our daughter off at the Aquarium to go see the fish, dolphins and of course the beluga whales (cue the Raffi song!). On the way to pick up our daughter my wife passed an ambulance racing out of the park. Of course the first thing she thought of was that our daughter might be in the ambulance after having an anaphylactic reaction to peanuts.

It is amazing how your perspective on EVERYTHING changes with anaphylaxis. Unfortunately the hard-wired parental tendency to think of the worst case scenario is put to the test more times than we would like.

The good news is that our daughter was safely watching the dolphin show and no anaphylactic reaction took place. My wife breathed a sigh of relief.

This sort of thing happens to me all the time now ... it is a very strange thing to become accustomed to.
