Do I get stitches today?

Terrific T keeps asking me this. We went in yesterday to have a suspicious birthmark/mole looked at and they are going to remove it in a few weeks. He is so pumped because they said he gets stitches.

I'm glad he is excited because his momma gets queasy just thinking about it. You's on his head, about 5cm behind his ear. Where there is no fat (not that he has any anywhere on his body). And he will be awake. And me and Big Daddy (oh yes you are) will have to hold him down while they do it. I asked if they could write a script for vallum and they said yes. I probably ought to have them write one for one for Terrific T too ;) Just kidding. Kinda.

A good friend is all too familiar with this process and has been walking me though it. Even while she is on vacation (now that is a good friend!). And I know he will be ok and this is more preventative than anything, but I don't like my baby having his head cut into. Call me crazy. I would appreciate the prayers that it is super easy for him and I don't pass out on him. I remember when I was in high school, I had a birthmark removed off my head and my dad about passed out. I still remember being able to see his feet as he was hiding behind the equipment in the room so he didn't have to see it ;)

Parenting is hard, y'all. These little boogers get right into your heart and you hurt when they hurt, and worry when they worry. I know he is thinking about it because he keeps talking about it. But so far, it is excitement about it...and I can live with that.


  1. I'll be praying for you and T. It's hard to be Mama sometimes, but I'm sure it will go o.k. I'm so glad that your hubby will be there too.

  2. Aw :( We'll be praying for y'all! It IS hard to be a momma, but at least he's not at all afraid to go! That should make it alot easier for you when the time comes to bring him!

  3. I so remember your high school memory and dad so not being helpful.. I also remember when KJ had stitches in her chin and he was in the corner with a nurse say, " just put your head between your knees and I will get you some Ice!"... I was the one holding KJ's hand while they stitched her up... mom's have to be tough and then fall apart later.... will sure be praying for T and you :)
    Love you


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
