Anticipating pain

Poor Baby has four teeth coming through. Four! This really isn’t much fun for anyone. I can see teeny tiny white bits though in his top gums where they are just about to break through. So hopefully it’s not too long to go now.

Helping him deal with the pain and discomfort is probably quite good practice though. In a few days Baby is due to have an operation. I’ve not mentioned it before but he has an undescended testicle. So later this week we’re off to the hospital for his surgery. It’s routine, from the perspective of the hospital, and he’ll probably be out that day. But from our position it’s anything but routine. He’ll be under general anaesthetic so can’t eat or drink for six hours before hand. Try explaining that to a nine month old! It’s keyhole surgery but it’s still likely he’ll be in a fair bit of pain afterwards. Poor little mite!

    Hi not commented before but I always enjoy reading your blog. Just wanted to wish you all good luck for the op and I hope baby isn’t in too much pain! My now 15 month old had an op almost twelve months ago and even though they reassure you it’s all routine it’s still scary and worrying. But once it’s over you can all relax and look forward to christmas. X
