Mother Claims

While talking into his dictaphone, doing rounds on Crew...

Dr. M: Blah blah blah, blood pressure, blah blah, heart functions, blah blah, weight, blah blah...

(Pausing the recorder and calling for a nurse) Dr. M: What's with this 170 gram weight gain? Has he been reweighed? Did someone check the scale settings? This is impossible!

The nurse scurries to show him verification of several reweighings, documentation of using the same scale every night, assurance that he wasn't puffy with extra fluid.

Dr. M: This doesn't make any sense!

(Timidly raising hand to interrupt) Megan: Uh, Dr. M? Um... we've been praying really hard. And it's not a faulty scale. He looked fat when I saw him before the weigh-in and he no longer fit into his clothes. We had to bump him up to the next size.

(Turning recorder back on) Dr. M: Mother claims this is the result of prayer.

(Somewhat aghast, wondering if I might be being mocked--which turned out not to be the case) Megan: Ack! Did you really have to put that in the dictaphone??

Dr. M: Why not? It's as good an answer as anything I can come up with! I sure don't have anything better to explain it!
