“What’s that? What’s that black spot?”
“Where?” the tech asked.
He jumped up and pointed to something on the screen. “Right there. What’s that?”
“Well, I’m not really focused on that area right now . . .”
“He’s never been to one of these,” I explained. “This is his first look. He doesn’t know what’s what.”
She smiled and nodded. As she glided the wand over my stomach she narrated what she was looking at. Finally she came to a view where she could see the black spot he was concerned about. “Oh that? That’s the stomach.”
He appeared relieved.
She took a few measurements and printed out pictures for us, then excused herself to let the doctor know we were ready.
I handed the images to him. “What was that all about?”
His expression turned serious. “I thought our baby had a hole in it.”
