Introducing: Dr. Callie
Dr. Callie cares deeply about her patients. Here is her most recent patient, Samantha. As you can see, Samantha is wearing 2 foot casts and has a bandaged head. This is serious stuff here. But Dr. Callie handles it with ease.
First, she urges Sammy to "stay calm." Next, she checks for a normal heartbeat, which she can detect without even listening through her stethoscope -- she's that good.
As you can see by the smile on Sammy's face, she's happy to be in Dr. Callie's care, for Dr. Callie has great skills, but also a kind bedside manner.
And after all the work is done, why not hit a hayride?
Yes, Samantha and Callie were quite a hit at the ward Halloween party...bringing in the prize for "Most Original." They are quite a team these two. They both had a lot of fun at the party...the jump house, the cotton candy, the parade! Oh did Callie love the parade. I wish we had video of it...but Callie pulled Sammy's hospital bed (aka...red wagon) the entire time. Sammy giggled and Callie, at one point, yelled out, "It's Halloweeeeeeen!" It was a great night. Unfortunately our camera's battery was low and went kaput on us, but at least we got these gems. I was hoping to get a picture of the girls with Eric and Stuart Russell (Marcus' cousins) who were down visiting, but it didn't happen. In fact, I'm really rather bummed that we didn't get a picture of them at all. Oh well I suppose.
