Defining Terms

New patient for a well-child visit; taking a routine history:

Me: Have you ever been operated on for anything?

Kid: Yeah, I had stitches once.

Mom: No, dear. The doctor is asking about surgery; you know, that you go to sleep for.

Kid: I did! I fell asleep while they were putting them in, remember?

I guess that one, unlike this, was definitely anesthetized.
