Life expectance is a STATISTICAL average, and has exactly NO relevance
to any given individual. 

Any of us could get hit by a bus tomorrow!

All anyone can do is take as good care of themselves as possible, and
then we'll live as long as we're supposed to.

Quoting life expectancy statistics at people with chronic diseases is
scary, and meaningless, and I wouldn't do it, especially not to a child. 

May your daughter live to be 120!!!

Working on just that,
