I sent my child, my first born, my only daughter, my pride and joy, to a sterile room to have a procedure that involves needles, scalpels, anesthesia and bleeding.
My leg has not stopped shaking and my mind is racing. I just paid someone to cut into my baby. Something about that just feels wrong.
I went through an emergency c-section, kidney failure and seizures to bring this child into the world. Now John Denver is serenading me as I “relax” with an awful cup of coffee and free WiFi, while she is in a cold room with strangers poking and prodding her.
To say this child could ask for a pony today is an understatement. We’ll be enjoying ice cream for dinner tonight and watching a marathon of Disney/Pixar movies.
They just came out and told me she did beautifully. I hadn’t realized I was holding my breath until that moment.
This parenting gig is tough.
