Hanging Out With My Doc

My doctor and me

Here's what I learned about doctors. When one or two come in at a time, it can be really fun. They love to joke around, and I can tell that they're really trying hard to help me get better. Sometimes they use big medical words, though, that sound like mumbo-jumbo. If that happens to you, be sure to ask them to translate what they're trying to tell you into regular English. It helps me to remember what they say when they write the important things down. My Mom thinks that my doctor Frank here looks like Tom Cruise. He told me that I'm the handsome one, though! What do you think?
