there is always a question on if you should ask a VERY shallow self serving question...should you be that mom...should you be that vain in public--out loud...should you say this...should you ask that...well...I did...I was that mom...Maddie had her dilation Friday...I have become very comfortable with the doctors, nurses, anesthesia, check in attendants/specialists, and cna's...they know Maddie; she knows them; I know them...we talk family, life, and shop...they call her by name without hesitation...fill her charts without question...it has become so routine...and "normal"...and then I did it...I asked...Chad mentioned that Maddie was developing a uni-brow...and Maddie is starting pre school Wednesday...so I told him...I was going to ask my favorite nurse to pluck while she was under general anesthesia...or if I could pluck...what I did not expect was that I would have to get clearance from the doctor and anesthesiologist...so I did it anyway...the nurse understood my annoyance of the uni-brow and the trepidation of plucking while she was all squirmy wormy...and she said YES! and laughed...I asked the doctor and he said yes and asked if I wanted to throw in a pedi...and anesthesiologist said he would paint her nails to match her toes...so all in all it was a win of a day...Maddie got her eye brows did...the staff got a laugh and I got out of the torture of plucking them myself...oh yes and Maddie's esophagus is staying where it should so we are officially off the every 3 week rotation and are going to a 2 month esophagram here in Casper....and yes I have officially become that mom! toddlers and tiara her we come!
