Annie, something I would like to share with you, is this, for some reason children react so differently when they undergo surgery than what we as adults do. I do not know if any of your children has ever had surgery of any kind or not, but when my daughter was 11 yrs old she had to have an emergency appendectomy, they had ruptured and they were not sure she would survive the next 24 hours. She was one sick little girl. But, by the fourth day she made a turn around and during all if this time and her recuperating time at home she never one time complained of surgical pain. I was scared and expecting the worst,. But these kids are resilent and they recover so much differently than adults do. I guess its the age difference, thats the only thing I can think of.
Mary's daughter was incredible in her recovery, like you she was terrified and worried her daughter would have this horrible pain and to her surprise she did wonderful and the drs never once let her suffer. This little gal said she felt like she was given a whole new life after surgery because she had been so limited.
Please let us know when your son has his surgery, ok? Take care...Susie
