Daily Prompt: Mouth Drop

In exactly 100 words creatively describe one moment when your mouth dropped open, chin hit the ground, and tears rolled down your face (figuratively or not). If you prefer to develop this into a longer post, that’s fine too!

Pre-op 15 years ago, nothing to eat since midnight. Laying on the gurney waiting for the anesthesiologist to come in and review what medicines that he would be administering. He never showed and my gynecologist appeared at the end of my bed. Mrs. Whitner, “we have a slight problem”  with a look of confusion I asked what’s wrong? You are slightly pregnant, Dr. you know there isn’t anything like slightly pregnant. Well we can’t perform your tubal ligation with you being pregnant. Mouth drops wide open and tears roll down my face. My husband and I put our heads together and I changed clothes and left the hospital.

She is the youngest.. .. I wouldn’t have it any different.
