Several hours after my last post…
Spice was giggling and making funny faces with the drug they gave her. She didn’t exactly go under… Just completely spaced out. The little operation was conducted right there in emergency, and was a first for the doctor. He said he had never before done a procedure with another person in the bed. Because you see, Sugar kept her arm around her and watched a movie while Spice had her thumb put back together. The nail was taped on until it falls off, and her thumb was set, as he suspected there was a little break.
As we left just after midnight, I had one child draped over my shoulder with her thumb hanging out, and another drearily plodding along beside me. Sugar, by the way, had been an angel all evening.
The doctor called out to us: “sure have a nice family there. It was lovely to meet you.”
It was lovely to meet him as well, but I’m hoping that I will not see him again anytime soon.
