Aiden's Surgery

Aiden is having his hernia surgery tomorrow morning. To say I'm sick to my stomach is an understatement. Noah had his surgery when he was 5 so at least I know the drill now but I think it might be harder on me this time. Noah at least was old enough to explain what was going to happen. I explained it in very simple terms and he wasn't scared at all. He was so good and brave. How do I explain to a newly 3 year old about tomorrow?? How do I tell him that some strangers will come wheel him away from mommy and daddy and that it's ok? How do I explain that he needs to let them put a mask over his face and go to sleep? And every time I think of him waking up in the recovery room scared and in pain and not a familiar face anywhere, I start to cry. With Noah we got to come in the recovery room with him after a short time, I'm hoping the same will be true tomorrow. I pray he comes out of the anesthesia feeling fine and bounces back to his old self quickly. Between Aiden and my Dad's surgeries all in the past 2 weeks, I'm through with hospitals for awhile. I pray my family stays healthy.

I'll be praying for Aiden and for you too...Keep us posted when you feel up to it. I can only imagine how hard this has been for you, but I know you are far stronger than you give yourself credit for. I know nothing will keep your little Aiden down for long. Kisses and hugs for my great-nephew

The day will be over before you know it (mostly due to lack of sleep) and Aiden will be his bouncey self. And maybe this will be the end of the Bozarth Health Club......I am too tired of hospitals.....

I'm sure you will both get through this with flying colors. It's hard to see your children in pain. Glad that you have an early surgery. Looking forward to a good report later today from you and your Dad.

Because I'm so far behind on blog reading, I know that everything went fine, but I wanted you to know that I was thinking of you.
