Childrens doctorAiden meets a new children’s doctor

(The following is a dramatization.)

Childrens doctor should not be intimidating. Once there was a boy named Aiden whose family brought him to a new home in a new town near Gastonia, NC, where his family needed to find him a new children’s doctor. Aiden was nervous around strange grownups, and especially around doctors and dentists. Too often they either seemed cold and distant, or tried too hard to be friendly and seemed unpleasantly fake.And even though Aiden didn’t like being sick, he sometimes felt as though he was letting them down when he didn’t have any symptoms to report.

Aiden was very surprised at how well the first checkup at the new children’s doctor went. The doctor was reassuring and naturally friendly. It was much easier to talk to her than he had thought it would be.When it was time to leave, he was kind of sorry that he wouldn’t be seeing her very often as long as he was well.

The time Aiden got sick

Visits to the children’s doctor every once in a great while were something Aiden took for granted until the day he got sick. It started as an ordinary cold. His mother knew all about dealing with colds, so she kept him home and warm and made sure he ate and drank plenty of fluids. Just when it seemed like he was recovering from this, Aiden broke out in a rash. It appeared on his face and body, making it look like he’d been slapped.

So Aiden went back to his friend the children’s doctor, who looked him over and let him know this was nothing very serious. It turned out he had something called “fifth disease,” which started out looking like a cold but turned into a rash after a few days.It wasn’t very dangerous and was likely to go away in a week to ten days. The only other thing he learned was that he should stay away from pregnant women until he was well. Since he didn’t know any pregnant women, this wasn’t a problem, and his mom and dad were very relieved. And it wasn’t long before he was well again.
