Bad doctor’s visit

January 28, 2010 at 3:14 pm 1 comment

I took Nate and Gabe to the doctor the other day for potentially their second dose of the H1N1. But they had both been sick so it really turned into a sick visit.  And unfortunately we saw the doctor we don’t typically see who appeared to be in a bad mood. I totally get that everyone has their day, even doctors. What I don’t get is if this is your profession and even though you are in a bad mood you still have to do everything in your power to be the best doctor for your patients. Nate was in one of his moods and did not want to be checked. I had to hold him down. It wasn’t pretty. But what was really the worst part was the doctor’s outright annoyance at the situation. And what was worse was my annoyance at Nate and at the doctor but my lack of ability to handle the situation. ugh. It was bad.  Looking back I wish I had been more comforting to Nate and also been able to stand up to the doctor. These things happen and we have moved past it but I am really frustrated and saddened by it.

    It happens sometimes like this and we always learn from them – they way we can learn that next time something similar happens we can stop, take a breath, tell the doc to come back after the next patient so we can get a hold (or not) of the situation.

    I feel for ya.
