Tomorrow is fast approaching. And, I don't like it. I don't like it one bit. I mean, please don't get me wrong the operation my Mini-Moose is undergoing is very small and very short and I know that lots and lots of Children have the absolute misfortune of having to undergo far worse surgery for longer period of time, which I think is awful. But, I can't help but feel really bloomin' awful about it. The urge to call the Hospital and cancel the whole damn thing is really very strong. Of course I would rather he didn't go in, have stitches or be made to feel really groggy. But, I know that needs must and it's really important that we get this sorted while we can.
I guess, the plus sides to this operation are that his umbilical muscle will be sorted, no more risk to his stomach or health where a hernia is concerned, he misses no School for his op as he doesn't attend one yet and he will be all round healthier because of it. I just have to keep reminding myself of these point in order to make tomorrow feel a little more manageable. Don't get me wrong, on the outside I shall cope for him. But, on the inside I'll be crying like a little baby
we are off out shortly to go and choose him a wicked packed lunch to take in with him to gobble after his operation if he feels up to it. I'm guessing if he chooses it all himself, he is more likely to eat it resulting in a better chance of coming home on the same day. Which would be great. Nothing like your own home and bed when you're not feeling great.
There isn't really any point to this post. But, I just had to document this somewhere and I'm thinking it would be great to hear from you about your experiences with littlies and operations or Hospital visits. After all, the online community can be a great one! :-)
Here's to our super strong Children and the Parents that have to be strong for them!
