Preparing A Child For Surgery
I remember hearing about people who would rather give their right arm then let a thing happen to their kids. Now I am there. How do you prepare a child for surgery?
I don't believe in lying to kids, but keeping it simple is best. Landon knows he's getting a cast and going to sleep. That's good enough. Any more would be too much anxiety. I gave him tons of toys, games, his favorite meal, but really just was there if he felt nervous. That's really all you can do.
I hate this for him and wish we didn't have to do this, but we have to. Please send your prayers for Landon having a smooth surgery and an even smoother transition into surgery. We will let you know how he does.
