So the girl child is whining because school starts back tomorrow. I, being a sympathetic mother, tell her to shut up and stop bitching because I have to work too.
Of course, I'm scheduled for just a c-section and nothing else (long story).
Just a c-section.
I hope to always remember that "just a c-section", something that is routine for me, is something amazing, exhilarating, and scary for those who put their trust in me. Yes, I have done hundreds, maybe even thousands. But to that woman, it is one of only a few.
I hope to always remember. Even at 2 am.
