Rollin' around the halls of CHOP less than 3 days after open-heart surgery. Miss Marla wasn't afraid of going under the knife; but I did in fact throw an earth-shattering tantrum in the OR when the anesthesiologist went to take off the hot pink nail polish Mom-Mom painted my nails with. You may think I'm crazy, but I do remember The Meltdown. The only way to calm me down (why didn't they just hit me with some Versed??) was by promising me a new bottle of hot pink nail polish. Dr. S. held up his end of the bargain and came to the unit with the hot pink nail polish he promised. I cherished it for years and carried it around with me EVERYWHERE (in this really tacky denim purse!) To this day, hot pink nails make me happy. It's those small gestures of my doctors and nurses that made those rocky roads just a bit easier. Happy Heart Awareness Month. 💅🏼
