Free valet parking (at least for us). Yes, folks, Children's Medical Center in Dallas has valet parking--at the front entrance of the hospital. We decided to brave the quoted 6.00 fee and save ourselves the trouble of parking in No Man's Land, and boy, I tell you...it was worth it, especially as it ended up being free. 3.00 off coupon from inside the hospital, and 3.00 off because we have a handicapped placard! Yee hah! FREE!!
Heh heh. Yes, another reason I love them. Fantastic rooms, room service, Purell that smells wonderful, awesome TV channel selection, and now free valet parking. It makes me glad that if/when Dakin needs to be hospitalized, it will be there. That sounds strange, I know, but it's nice to know what to expect at least facility-wise if that should ever happen.
Anyhoo, Dakin had a cardiology appointment today--one of his little SMARD buddies had an extremely serious cardiac event last August, and so Dr. Iannaccone (neurologist) decided it would be good to get a cardiac baseline for the D.
He was extremely patient during both the echo and the EKG. Their standard procedure is to sedate, but we said forget it. Our drug of choice to keep him calm was Little Einsteins, and it worked like a charm.
Everything looked good. His heart rate is higher-ish, admittedly, but that's definitely normal in a kiddo with his array of schtuff going on, according to the cardiologist. So we are good to go cardiologically speaking--hooray.
And besides, nothing can possibly go wrong on a day where you have Chick-Fil-A for breakfast!!
