This comes as no surprise to me but here is an article about the emotional ties heart kids and their parents have to their pedicatric cardiologists. Nick's cardiologist is on leave-of-absence and he's going to have to see another one this Friday. I have to say that I too am a little distressed at the thought of having to go to a different doctor. I think it is only natural to have such ties to the doctors that have brought your children so far. Luckily when Nick is an adult, Texas Children's Hospital in Houston has a program put in place for their patients to see a cardiologist associated with them.
