Yay my son doesn't need surgery (as long it doesn't come back). He had a 4 cm swollen lymph node sticking out of neck. After 3 check ups with the specialist, it has continued to go down. What a relief!
He's had stitches right before he turned 4 and then had to fix his circumcision as a toddler so he's not been fond of the doctors so I'm grateful he doesn't need to go through surgery.
I asked this question to some local ladies about a month ago, after we thought my 5 year old son might need surgery.
What things have scared you that happened with your kids? I'd love to hear your answers in the comments or e-mail me your story to include in a future Mommy Mondays.
Jessica --- "My son had to go to Primary Children's to have a cat scan of his head. He has Benign external hydrocephalus--ie extra fluid in the brain. It was a really scary time for us but we were so glad that he didn't have a tumor or something that needed a shunt. This same child has been in the hospital 3 times in his little 1 year old life."
Cassie --- I had a little 14 month old who had to go in for surgery to remove a cyst on her neck. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, to carry my baby to the doors of the operation hall and hand her over to a nurse. Especially when she looked back at me and cryed. But she was okay and recovered super fast.
