Barium milkshake


Ian: Hey Dad, we haven't checked out the new GI and Chest X-Ray machine over at Children's Hospital yet, have we?
Me: Hmm, I think you're right! Don't know how we missed that one. What say you and me make a day of it, eh boy? We've got nothing better planned for this beautiful Thursday. I'll buy you a nice, thick Barium milkshake.
Ian: So, where do you take Silvi when you go out for your daddy-daughter dates?
Me: Put your boots on, son...

Hey! I know that room! I bet I could get there blindfolded!!! And, lucky us, we just may be there again soon. Wouldn't want to go too many months without one of those awesome milk shakes! Mnpls Children's mixes 'em just right! So who's the GI? Ferenci is ours. Short, blunt, "don't beat around the bush" kind of guy. Also acknowledges I know almost as much as him about GI stuff. LOL If you see him, tell him Angela says Hi. He'll know who you're talking about, as she's one of his "mystery" patients! LOL

RK: Ian seemed to take to it... he can have my share.

Leah: I didn't catch the name of the Dr. who performed the GI. He wasn't short though. Ian did great, not a bit of fussing. Here's hoping I don't become an expert at GI stuff... once is enough. :)

Who needs a Nintendo Wii with this amount of technology to play with?

He's getting so big! I remember Chase's first barium milkshake... :)

Yes, these are definitely different memories we are making than those we made with our first born children...

Kim: If they ever make a game out of taking your child to get tests, I think we'll get high score.

Laurie: I hope Ian never remembers his "milkshake;" a malt shake at DQ should be his first memory. :)
