Alexander Myrthil, 20 months old, with the help of his mother, Luby Myrthil of Ruskin, examines nurse Juliana Estevez's mouth during a "Doctors for a Day" event Thursday at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital in Tampa. The activity consisted of hospitalized pediatric patients and caregivers switching roles. Doctors, nurses and other caregivers waited on gurneys and had the patients treat their pretend illnesses and broken bones. Alexander also gave Estevez a Band-Aid and "medicine" the way doctors and nurses have been giving him treatment in the hospital.
