The proceedure went well and once the cyst was removed there really wasn't much to worry about other than the bald spot on the top of his head that we were trying figure out how to cover up. The Dr. left the room and his 2 medical assistants were left to sew things up and send us on our way. They were almost finished when they started talking about 'sewing' some gauze to the scalp to help keep things clean.
I figured I must have misunderstood...I thought, oh, it'll be fine. It'll just be a little square and it'll look like a bandage, that's all.
NOPE! Not even close!
We walked out to the car, and then it really started. Chris started saying, "this is so lame. " "I look ridiculous!" "What am I supposed to do about Bishopric meeting tomorrow night." I couldn't help laughing because of his reaction. And because I was picturing him all dressed up in his suit with this cotton sewn to him. Then it occurred to both of us...the appointment to remove the gauze isn't until next Monday...and it's his month to conduct Sacrament Meeting this month...and it's the Primary Program on Sunday (so there will be lots of people there - and visitors). So we started coming up with viable solutions - like, maybe he could go to the Jewish ward and wear a yarmelke, or maybe we could pretend he has the mumps and tie a scarf around his head, or maybe he could wear one of the flowers our girls like to wear in their hair....and on and on.
As we were having this conversation, he kept looking at himself in the mirror and making the same comments as he did at first and it got me totally laughing. We were driving down the road, and I was cracking up, and so, so worried that I was going to either crash or wet my pants (or maybe both) and then he says, "It looks like I have a stinkin' tampon sewn to my head!" I totally lost it...I had a drink of water in my mouth that I spit all over myself, and I truly thought I was going to wet myself.
Because, he had a point...
