Future Doctor

We took Little Man down to SLC yesterday to be seen by his regular and most favorite doctor, Dr. Cowley. They needed to see him in clinic to do an echo, ekg, and ICD check, and to get a new baseline idea of where he is sitting on things. Things went well and everyone down there is just so amazed and happy that the tumor is OUT!!

It was a long day for driving there and back, but overall was good. He was very excited and happy to see Dr. Cowley, and brought him a slew of gifts... from a giant "Smartie" candy, to a Valentine, 2 pieces of artwork, & a couple of snapshots of the 2 of them together.
On the way to the hospital we were telling him about the "Blue Angels" (pilots who perform air shows and are doing one in Idaho Falls soon). We told him that we were going to try to take him to see them and he bursts out saying something along the lines of "Can we just go to the hospital instead? I don't want to see the airplanes... I want to see Dr. Cowley. Can we just go to the hospital?" LOL We had to explain that the airshow would be a different day and that YES we were still taking him to see Dr. Cowley. Funny kid.
We had a couple of minutes to spare before our appointment and so we wandered into the hospital gift shop. Nick found a pair of kid sized doctor scrubs and pleaded with me to please, please, PLEASE let him get them because he is going to be a cardiologist.
I caved.
And so this morning when I awoke and came out into the front room Nick had already dug through our things, fished the scrubs out, and donned them.
