Courage – I am the Lioness and he is my cub

Tomorrow my son will have yet another anaesthetic and be in the hands of the surgeons once more.

So we have to be brave and courageous and strong! There’s always a risk involved but he is upbeat about this and hopefully the surgery will be a success. Recovery time should be quick. And then they will repeat the process again and again until they’re happy that they have done enough.

Unfortunately I can’t be at the hospital with him this time, so I shall be pacing the floor until I hear that he is out of theatre. In the past I have rushed down to recovery to be with him when he wakes up. This is usually accompanied by tears of relief and joy at seeing him.

I’ll be sending him a virtual hug and a text now that he’s a grown up!

My final words are a plea; don’t forget that while some people have the most fantastic time at Christmas, for some people it can be the exact opposite, struggling with their health, etc.
