the no crying lasted until 5PM. It was followed by a weepy soft cry.

Me: "Are you sad, honey?"

Sam: [nods]

Me: "Why are you sad?"

Sam: "Because my friends... they hurt me."

Me: [thinking he's talking about people at school because all day he's been friggin running around like he didn't just have surgery this morning] "When did your friends hurt you?"

Sam: "At the doctor's this morning."

Me: "Oh, honey. I'm so sorry."

Sam: "It makes me so SAD!" [sobbing ensues]

Oh, poor little buddy. He's so innocent and trusting- he probably feels so betrayed by his friends the doctors and nurses...
