chalazion craziness

Hadley has had a "growth" on her lower eyelid for the last month or so. I've had the doctors look at it at every ear infection appointment we've had in the last few weeks (there has been a few visits) and they felt it was related to her cold. Finally, ear infections and colds were gone (for a moment) and she was left with a huge bump on her lower eyelid, that seemed(s) to be getting worse and worse. We were referred to a pediatric opthomologist.

We got in to see the eye doctor yesterday. Hadley was so good and such a trooper when it came to dilating her eyes. The doctor informed us that it is a chalazion, which is a plugged oil duct, and she is prone to it. Because this one is so big, we need to have it drained. Which means putting my little girl under anesthesia, which scares me. BUT, she will be more comfortable in the big picture to get rid of it and manage any future outbreaks.

Have you ever had to have your child put under anesthesia? How did you cope with it?
