Yesterday we made our trip to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to see his specialist for a follow-up.
He had surgery there at the end of June to fix a small problem that was present at birth. Nothing serious in comparison to many of the kids we see there.
Our doctor is pretty awesome! All of the docs that we have encountered there have been. You have to really love kids and have the patience of a saint to work there. I have seen lots of crazy parents and quite a few tantrums. Stress can bring out the crazy!
Thankfully, we tend to be calm, appreciative patients. Bring me an extra pillow or bring my water refill and I will love you forever! I firmly believe that you get put on the top of the priority list if you are nice and say “Thank You.” When it comes time for your pain meds or need help to the bathroom…you don’t want to be on the “I am only doing this for you because it is my job” list!
The appointment went well and Baby Ram-a-razzi did great. He did scream bloody murder when he locked eyes with his doctor, but after about 10 appointments he know that he is getting pushed on and poked at.
We took Mr. Talking Puppy with us and he was happily occupied until the doctor came in. Thankfully, it is a rarity that they are more than 5 min or so “behind.” I<3 CCHMC!
