Today we took Nathan to our pediatrician to receive the last of his vaccinations until 2015. Needless to say, we are all happy about that! Although Nathan is a champ when it comes to receiving shots, it is heartbreaking to watch him get poked with needle after needle. Today when the doctor came in and checked him over, Nathan had that look on his face…that one of suspicion. I am sure his memory was quite clear of the last shot this man had given him (2 actually) just 4 weeks ago.
We really like our German pediatrician who works within St. Joseph’s Hospital in Wiesbaden. He always enters the patient room with his high-top Converse shoes, a warm smile and a friendly handshake. He is so kind to Nathan, so gentle with him and so cognizant of how Nathan feels (emotionally and physically). I guess that’s what makes him one of the most sought after doctors in Wiesbaden.
