Trauma and Drama

Rowan has known for a couple of weeks that we are going back to Dr. Barnett today.  Dr. Barnett specifically asked me to describe the procedure to her so that she knew what was happening.  Which, being nobody's fool, I avoided until last night.
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.
