Dr. Womack


So Friday, Calvin had his appointment with the cardiologist to check out his heart murmur. We had to go down town to the Children's hospital, which was absolutely darling. Calvin had a blast in the waiting room with the "Big Balls" (Bean Bag Chairs), giant blocks, fish tanks, and everything else they had to offer. I have never seen a waiting room like it. And, unfortunately Calvin didn't want to leave it when they showed us into the doctor's office. So as we were waiting patiently in the doctor's office (or Calvin waiting not so patiently), in walks in a pretty young guy wearing a green t-shirt and red Chuck Taylors. He immediately announces that he was doing his best to dress for the season, and then introduces himself as Dr. Womack. I had to laugh, totally not what I expected to be his cardiologist, but any doctor that sports red Chuck Taylors receives my seal of approval. He was also so great with Calvin, and just so goofy and fun. So ultimately there is good news and bad news. The good news is Calvin received a clean bill of health and doesn't seem to have a heart murmur anymore, and the bad news is he doesn't get to visit Dr. Womack anymore...
