Over two hours at the hospital getting all sorts of annual EKGs and echocardiograms done on my little guy and the only time he freaked out was when they asked him to take his shoes off for height and weight.
“You are doing a great job,” I told Isaac between chats with multiple doctors toward the end. “You are having such a good attitude. I know this is boring, but you’re doing a great job and I’m so proud of you.”
“Yeah but,” Isaac said, unconvinced, “Yeah but, I wasn’t having a good attitude at the beginning. I was freaking out a little bit.”
“Yeah, what was that about?” I asked.
“I didn’t want to take my shoes off,” said the kid who didn’t fuss at all about having to take his shirt off, get stick-ums stuck all over for the EKG, then get goo-ed up for the echo.
“Well you don’t have to take your shoes off anymore. We are almost done.”
The doctor came back in and Isaac told her all about his trains.
I love my brave little guy!! Everything is looking good, and he’s all set until next year’s appointment!
