I hope that your daughter gets better.

Yes, I’ve imagined her saying, ‘Really, Dad?’ when you blurted out her older sister’s birth date to the nurse instead of hers and I’ve replayed her asking you that several times.

She’s so young. I hope that she doesn’t need surgery.

I hope that she’s in good health.
