  • Now That Would Be Awkward

    February 27, 2007

    Today I had my two-week post surgical follow-up appointment. I told Sean that I was going to see the very same doctor that delivered him safely into this world, the first human to ever lay hands on him.

    “Are you going to get a shot?” he asked in a worried voice. In his mind, a shot is the worst thing that can happen.

    “No, I don’t think so,” I said hoping to ease any anxiety he might be having. “I think he’s just going to look at my tummy.”

    After a long pause, he asked, “Is he going to kiss it and make it better?”

    Oh lordy, let’s hope not.

      Ha ha ha… I work in a large Ob/Gyn office and this cracked me up cause I know exactly what you mean by akward were your surgeon to kiss your boo-boo. You would definitly have some ‘splaining to do when you got home!

      Glad you are on the road to recovery!

      But wouldn’t it be good if it was as simple as that!

      Seriously awkward. Oh, if the world really worked like that, though. So simple, so sweet, really. But definitely awkward.

      (My little boy had a friend over one day who fell and hurt his hind end. He came in crying – it was nothing major, but nothing I could do would console him. I finally asked, “What do I need to do?” His answer? Kiss it better. Hmmmm. I told him that was a job for his own mommy.)

      I tried to leave comments several times, but my IP was not on Typepads new white list … don’t ask … long story.

      Any way, I tried to leave a comment that went something like this…

      I’m so glad you’re feeling better, because I was getting ready to ship off a care package of canned peaches, Diet Cherry 7-UP, and a snickers bar!!!

      Whew! I’m so glad doctors don’t kiss our boo boos!
