Mummy Needs To Be Brave…
Thankfully the doctor had his tablet with him this time, so Chunk could watch Peppa Pig whilst they spent a while measuring his heart and such like.
They confirmed the left side of his heart is working very hard and is quite enlarged and that Chunk is now a good weight for them to operate.
So someone is going to be playing with my boy’s heart and main artery in the next few weeks and it has FINALLY HIT ME.
It’s times like this I really hate being a single parent, as I have nobody to bear the worry with and to give me hugs during the procedure when I will be a complete mess.
This will be the scariest thing I have ever had to face in my life, because somebody will be performing risky surgery on the person I created and love with my entire being.
So facing this alone is not a nice prospect, but Chunk and I have been through so much during his little life, that I know I will deal with this, because I have to.
I am stronger than I give myself credit for, and I will be strong for both Chunk and I on that imminent day, because THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION.
Any tips on getting through this would be greatly appreciated fellow parents!
