nervous

Thursday morning my 20 month old will be having surgery. They'll knock him out completely, he'll have an IV and be on a vent. They'll cut his chest and thread a catheter through a vein and into his heart. Then they'll leave an "access button" in the chest and sew him closed. He needs the port. And I was doing SO well with it all. But suddenly I can't sleep or stop thinking about it

Re: nervous

theres a post on this board called "home from surgery" with the update. In short: it was a hard day, but he is home. He spits out his pain meds and claws at his chest. But he's going to be fine.
