Growing Out On A Limb

Surgery

Leave a comment

Last week, Oliver had a little day surgery.

For a kid that complains about a paper cut for three days, he took the entire thing like a champ – we learned and talked about the procedure for several days leading up to, there were no nerves the morning of the surgery, and very little complaining after the fact.

He spent the majority of three days on the couch and has pretty much taken care of the stitches on his own, which I think is so grown up for a seven year old.

Hopefully we have no more need for the IWK but I can’t say enough about the care he received.  The whole experience really could not have gone better, which makes me really thankful.
