scary stuff

Some scary stuff Halloweens past: general anesthesia, circumcisions, EEGs, seizures, more EEGs, status epilepticus, emergency rooms, pediatric intensive care units, intubations, malaise.

But with any luck, this year we will be taking Calvin trick-or-treating for the very first time. We may only make it down to Woody's house and back, but we're going to give it a try.

Calvin has no concept of what Halloween is—doesn't seem capable of grasping abstractions—so it will be more of a marker for me and Michael, a reminder that, at some point in recent years, he'd never have walked past the end of our driveway much less down the block.

In a few hours, just before twilight and if all goes well, we'll be crossing our fingers and knocking on Woody's door.
