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.
