The hospital just called to go over all the instructions for Jude's surgery on Wednesday. It was rather surreal talking to them. I thought I was okay with the idea of the upcoming surgery, but I got rather emotional on the phone. The nurse went down his medications, his medical history, and his medical needs. Then she got to the end, and she asked if there was anything else they should know.
"He gets very scared sometimes" I said
"What can we do to help with that?" she asked
"Maybe warm blankets to nuzzle him so he feels like he is still being held" I said a bit teary.
"You bet, we will make that happen" she replied.
"Anything else?" she asked
"He doesn't like taking medication by mouth" I said
"Then we will give sprays, or by IV" she said
She was very nice, and calmed my fears a little, but I am pretty sure I will be a mess on Wednesday.
