I am wondering how folks explained this to your kids. I am in a weird position where the week of my surgery, my job has me in another state from Mon - Thurs. My surgery is scheduled for the Friday at 7am, they want me there at 6am which means I have to leave home at 5am. Because of all of that, my parents will have my 3 year old all week (hubs works nights). I won't see my son until after surgery...does he come visit me in the hospital? Is he too young? I won't really be able to hold him or hug him. I don't really know that I want him to see me that way. I am angry that I have to be out of town that entire week w/my job because I won't get to see him. He loves being with my parents (and they LOVE having him) but he is now at that stage where by day 2 he is saying "Mommy, I want to come home" and that breaks my heart because he sounds like he feels that he is being punished. My doctor said hospital stay could be 4 - 5 days which puts me almost 10 days before I see my baby again. This is hard...
