How do I overcome this feeling of fear while having to find housing for my son with autism due to my upcoming surgery?

I wish it was that simple! I am having spinal surgery with rehab taking up to 6 months. Besides, I don't have family that could take care of him that long.

Do you have a family member that he knows pretty well? If so, ask the family member to come and stay at your home with him, until you are out of the hospital and are reasonably on your feet to healing...I would not put him anywhere else, unless he is close to someone you both know. I wouldn't put him in a group home, he will not feel safe and secure. Try family or friends first.
