What was the surgery for?
My boy's just shy of 8mths, currently "assisted walking" reckon by 9mths he'll have the walking thing down.
Currently best moment, him being born (also sits as best moment EVER!!!)
worst moment, having him go through surgery at just 1mth old (currently sitting at worst moment ever!!! also)
Kidneys, one wasn't working & was huge
Oh sh*t, did it all go well? Or potential life issues?
How did yiu handle something that huge? I'd be pulling my hair out
umm stress? yea, didn't so much as handle it as just have to accept it, there's nothing you can do...
The whole thing was sh*t, it wasn't immediately life threatening (people can survive quite well on 1 kidney) but it was bad enough we had to sit in hospital day after day waiting for a gap as we were top of the non-critical list & they weren't prepared to let us go the xmas shutdown without having it operated on.
Because it was surgery too every day we sat in hospital we had to starve him, then after he was doped up (f*** that's hard to see) & had wires & catheters coming out everywhere. The nurses & doctors were good & we did get a bunch of free toys but it's not something you ever want to see someone go through especially not a little one of your own creation to young to understand whats happening
The silver lining is apparently surgery did go well & we've gone from having to visit the surgeon/scans every 3 weeks to 6mthly. Other than a small scar on his hip he should be fine hopefully. Had it not been fixed it had the potential to cause problems down the track.
Damn dude, that would have been scary.
Yep, majorly gutting to have something like that happen to someone so small & young; ya can't even explain why you're doing it to them.
