Tomorrow, Jace will go in for surgery. He will have his tonsils and his adenoids removed.
I know this is the best thing for him. He gets strep throat all the time, and he is always sick and miserable. Having his tonsils out will make a world of difference. He’s a little anxious about the surgery, but I am a wreck. Every time I think about the surgery, I get sick to my stomach, I shake, and I just can’t focus. As I type this, I can barely form the words to say because it’s got me so upset. Now, don’t worry. Jace has no idea that I’m so scared.
This is a routine surgery. I know that. Kids are having this done all the time, and there are rarely any complications. So why am I so scared?
He goes in tomorrow morning at 6:30. They said that we can expect to be there for at least 8 hours and then he’ll get to go home.
I’d love any tips you have on calming my nerves, keeping Jace calm, and helping us both survive this surgery. Please?
