We were all hanging out watching Ace of Cakes and I realize I am out of time and have to tell her. So I gently and lovingly described the procedure. The problem is, no matter how carefully you phrase it, words like "stitches" and "numb you first" never go over well with Rowan.
The expected freak out and cries of "I am not going" went on for a bit until she settled down in high dudgeon. (I looked it up, it was perfect, " a feeling of intense indignation")
I can't blame her, it won't be fun. But I have a sneaking suspicion we are in for more trauma and drama when she wakes up.
