It's been one of those days at the end of which I am nearing total meltdown mode, but here's a funny tidbit about my day...
My teenager is scheduled for a surprise outpatient surgery tomorrow during which they're going to remove a rather large kidney stone from his inner workings. We followed this appointment up by rushing to take my 4-year old to a checkup that had already been scheduled with another physician. Still a little frazzled from talk of surgery and anesthesia and this-kind-of-scopy and that-kind-of-medication, I realized I'd brought all of the pre-op paperwork into the pediatrician's waiting room with me. And then I realized I was getting some funny looks, but with the way my day was going, I probably had managed to only put makeup on one side of my face or something. SO totally not surprising.
Trying to take advantage of the few "free" minutes I had in the waiting area (such as they were, given the presence of a restless 4-year old), I sat down to fill out a few pages of paperwork.
When I turned over the envelope to open it, I realized the source of the funny looks.
I kinda forgot about the helpful little illustration the nurse drew to inform us about the procedure. On the back of the packet I was holding. Of a penis.
Holy cow, I need this day to be over STAT.
