¿Qué pasa?

The youngest is sick. Quite sick. When the doctor asks us to sit down, my husband's reaction is one of defense. He stands against a wall instead.

When we leave, our questions have been exhausted, appointments have been made, direct lines have been exchanged, and the youngest has fallen fast asleep. In the parking garage, my husband notes a good omen in the doctor's surname, which is Spanish for

One venerated for experience, judgment, and wisdom.
