Our expert says:
Not too unusual and not likely to become a long-lasting problem. By chance, there have been two episodes, your hospitalization which unexpectedly lasted much longer than she expected and longer than she had been told, and your trip overseas, which have lead her to feel insecure, and scared that you can disappear for lengthy periods, causing a flare-up of separation anxieties. And it makes sense for you to be concerned at this time, as school will require longer periods of separation each day. A consultation or 2 with a child psychiatrist / child psychologist could help to settle these issues with her ( sometimes an informed third person can clarify things for her easier than someone as close as you ) before she starts school, or at aoround that time,.
