I had just hit “publish” when my phone beeped. A text:
“A+ appt. Off med. No ridilin.”
Translation: Good check up. Sophie’s heart is strong enough that she no longer needs Enalapril to lower her blood pressure. But not strong enough to put up with Ritilin.
Why is the route to get at what’s going on Sophie’s head so much harder than her heart? In so many ways, her heart is straightforward — it’s broken or it’s not.
