Having your baby go through surgery is ALWAYS scary!! My son has never had major surgery like THAT but a couple months back, he swallowed some tiny magnets from a Ninja Turtles magnetic dart board... was instructed to take him the ER. They decided to go down through his throat to remove them, couldn't find them... so they did a colonoscopy and STILL couldn't get them. I'm the kind of mom who FREAKS with a freakin' runny nose... so I was absolutely TERRIFIED. The only advice I have is to bring family/friends along for moral support. Also, choose a hospital and doctor with great reviews and that you trust completely. I don't know how long recovery from such a surgery takes but enjoy cuddling your little guy during that time. Be strong, Mama! Everything's going to be okay!!
