Dr. Death

Dear Dr. B -

I just wanted to let you know that Mini will be coming in today. I'm not sure if you remember him very well, he's only been to you once before, but he screamed like he was being interrogated at Gitmo. Yeah, you remember him now, don't you?

Sorry. We're back for more.

It might help if you do the little game again with your stethoscope. He seemed placated by the thought of you using it to look for Elmo. Stickers also help afterward. Feel free to pass that on to your nurse since she is the sticker Nazi.

I don't want you to think that this is anything personal. He loved his old Dr. B, too...until we went in to have a cough checked out and he ended up with 3 stitches on his forehead after tripping and hitting the examination table. That kind of ended it for him. It was over a year ago, but trust me, that head injury wasn't significant enough to affect his memory. He remembers. Oh, yes, he remembers.

We'll be there at 2:50.


PS. You might want to call in extra staff members.

Good Luck!

When B was old enough I began the bribes. At first it was a happy meal afterwards but eventually grew to "if you don't cry when you get a shot...I'll pay you a dollar." This STILL works like a charm.

Have a Happy New Year :)
