So my eldest baby girl, Nikki (17) is going in for surgery on Monday morning she will be in the hospital for 2 days.
She has asymmetrical enlarged tonsils with no indication of infection (mono, strep, tonsillitis etc.) They will be removing them and then doing a biopsy to see if there are any abnormal cells….
Needless to say I’m a little bit of a mess. Playing it cool and strong for her but really I’m feeling rather weak and vulnerable.
This quote is more for me than anyone else right now!
Any tips or pointers out there from other parents that have gone through medically stressful situations with their young adults?
Any tips or pointers to share would be grateful.
Keep us in your thoughts this week please.
