Today is going to be a good day. A hard day. An emotional day. Today Taj has his operation to put his grommets in. I must say after a very windy day yesterday this is a good thing. It is hard to see your son snuggle right into you as the pressure from the wind hurts his ears.
The hard part about today is going to be when he goes under. I am not looking forward to feeling his whole body go limp. He is also having the operation in the same hospital I took my mum. It will be emotional no doubt. But the hospital knows, and that is a good thing.
One other hard part is Taj is not allowed to eat or drink from 8am, and his operation is not until 1:30pm at the earliest. I can let him have water up until 9am after telling the nurse that he loves his water. I am not sure how we will pass the other hours, but I am sure they have done this so many times it won't be as stressful as what I think it will be. We go in just before 11am for admission.
When my boy wakes up I will be there by his side, like I will be when he falls asleep. I hope he feels no fear. I know he will feel no pain, and that to me is the best thing I can do for him.
