My 2 1/2 yr old dd is nursing only first thing in the morning now. On occasion, she has skipped a day of nursing altogether, always when she just forgot to ask. She sleeps in her own bed now.
Ok, here's the problem. Dh has some kind of a tumor behind his eye. He had it about three years ago and they did a biopsy and it was benign and they used medications to get it to shrink. But we were told that it could come back and that his risk for cancer is quite real in the old location or somewhere else.
So it is back now, he had a cat scan today and he is having a biopsy on Tuesday. The hospital is 30-60 minutes away and he will be having the surgery near his eye and will be staying in the hospital overnight.
My MIL said she'll stay with the kids overnight. I really want to be with dh for the surgery, overnight, and to take him home when he is discharged.
I have never been away from dd overnight before. She has never woken up and had me not be there before. She does adore MIL and is quite comfortable with her so maybe it will be okay...I'll probably be home by the afternoon...
I am so torn about what to do! I am really freaking out about what dh is going through and what we might find out. I also don't want to traumatize my dd.
Please mamas, has anyone had to deal with this kind of decision?
