I Need a Favor

posted by Momo Fali on July 18, 2012

I don’t care who you are, or if your kid is just having minor surgery, this moment right here? Never gets any easier.

Tube surgery 7/17. He’s fine. We were at the hospital because of his congenital heart disease and oxygen saturations which hover around the “I don’t know if he’s turning blue or if he just ate a snow-cone” level.

This shout out goes to all of the kids who had surgery yesterday and didn’t get to come home and sleep in their own bed.

Do me a favor, hug your kids.

    So glad that the surgery went well. Nothing like that is ever worry-free for a mama.

  • Laura in Little Rock

    I thought on Tuesday when my youngest had sedation to see a dentist and get a cap on a horrific cavity and then she gnawed on her lip so that it is roughly the size and shape of a ping-pong ball was a bad day. However, I still could drop her at school the next day and make it to grad school. Hat’s off to you Momo. ..and the snowcone comment did make me laugh.

  • AliciaC

    Thinking of you and hoping all is going well!

  • MommyTime

    Momo, I had a little taste of this back in Feb when my son had emergency surgery, and all I can do is salute your fortitude, send heartfelt hugs, and be impressed by your ability to have done this over and over. I am sorry I’m late to see this, but know I’m thinking of you. (((hugs)))

  • BEAN

    Aw. Mo. 🙁

  • Reese Dixon

    So. True. Never any easier. I hope everything went smoothly and you get the results you’re hoping for. Much love sent out to you.
