worried about my lil guy :( mommy5916 5 kids; California 2877 posts11th Apr
my 20 month old just left about an hour ago to san francisco. he has a tumor on his optic nerve inside of his eye. he needs to be put under today so his dr can get a good look at the tumor and take pictures of it, to check for growth and change. this is his second procedure so we know what to expect. but i couldnt go with him this time :( im 38 weeks today, and san fran is about 3 hours away. my midwife wanted me to stay home just in case i go into labor. its breaking my heart that i cant be there with my baby boy today, last time i was there, i held his hand as they gave him the gas :( , that was tough! his daddy is with him today, but i cant help but feel useless and like ive let him down by not being there with him today. then i start to think, what if the tumor has grown! if it has they will remove it today, i wont be there for my son. im a mess

I'm sorry hon. I know it must s**k and make your heart ache to not be able to be with him right now :(. You have not let him down at all you just have to do what's right by your belly baby as well. He knows you love him and just make sure you get plenty of snuggles when he returns :). I will say a prayer for your little man today.

so sorry. I know it has to be hard, but his daddy is with him and he will give him the comfort he needs. **hugs**

thank you so much! the dr just came, my son is ok! his tumor is the same as it was 3 mons ago! his oncologist is even confident enough to let his other eye specialist, take over and take care of it from now on. my baby will be on his way home as soon as he wakes up!!
