It's a good thing our insurance is lasting until next month. #5 has to have surgery to remove a cyst in his eyelid. It's pretty common procedure --outpatient, 30 minutes, blah, blah --and so I'm not too worried. However, he does have to be put under anesthesia. Yuck. However, the risks outweigh the other risks, and so we're gonna do it sooner rather than later. Plus there's that insurance thing.
This is my first child to undergo any kind of anesthesia, not to mention surgery! #3 had to get his head glued, and #2 and to get her chin glued --we've never had broken bones, stitches, or surgery (besides my own back in 1998 for the broken nose). Well, I guess Brandon had some moles removed a few years ago. But still! This is new for me. I'm not that scared (hospitals and such don't make me nervous --neither do needles. I know, I'm amazing), but it's still kind of...anxious-making.
To those of you (especially Julie) who deal with this a lot, my love goes out to you.
