An unpleasant and painful moment

posted by DL Byron on March 21, 2006

I was taking Ryan to the doctor for a follow-up appointment for an infection he had. He was going to have an ultrasound on his kidneys, I could tell he was nervous, and I told it was going to be “fun! and great!” Responding to my encouragement he says, “well, no, cause last time I went to the hospital it was an unpleasant and painful moment.” I couldn’t argue with him on that (they drew blood and he was not feeling well) and he totally cracked me up. I then changed the subject and tried to convince him that ultrasound was done by sharks with laser beams. I surmised that, “they lower you into a tank of water and these sharks swim around pointing the ultrasound laser at your belly.” He didn’t believe me for a second, but thought it sounded funny and asked the nurse where the sharks were when we got there.

Perfect, Byron. Thanks for reminding me to play more with the kids.

Hey you’re welcome. Ryan and I ended up spending most of the day together and, despite the hospital part, had a really good day.
