my Daughter Holly having operation on friday & im not looking forward to it especially the part when iv got to hold her in theatre so they can put her to sleep. I hated it last time they had to operate on her, last time it was just one thing she was having done & that was a operation on blocked tear ducks but that didnt work that well last time so they are redoing that plus they are operating on a squint at the same time.

She is only 22 months old & dose have a twin sister & they have been everywhere together since birth & i mean everywhere even the last time they operated on Holly, Rosie her twin went as well as she needed the operation as well so im a bit nervous that they might both act abit strange being away from there twin sister for the 1st time.

Any one else had there children operated on for squints how long did they take to recover & did the operation work 1st time, as the doc has told me it might not work 1st time & need to be done again

Oh I so know how you feel. It's so hard to hold them as they're sedated.

When my son had an operation on his ear he fought them putting in the sedation into his hand and he dropped soon as it went in and I almost dropped him as I didnt know what was coming.

When my daughter had an op, I was talking to her as she came round and I sooooo needed to cry out of fear and relief, but just wanted to sound reassuring to her as she came round so I was fighting the feeling constantly and to keep it out of my voice.

Its so hard to see someone you love vulnerable in any way.

I'm sure the doctors and nurses will do their utmost for your lil one and its so wonderful for her that she'll have you there to rely on.

My thoughts are with you x

awww poor thing,sending good vibes your way,i remember when my son had his teeth out under ga,it wasnt nice at all

My DD had squint op at 8 - pm me and can discuss............

My son had an operation at 11 months. It's not nice, but you are in pretty good hands...worse things could happen. At least knowing what is going to happen helps to be prepared a bit. Promise yourself something nice you will all do together when she's home and it will give you all something to look forward to. Best of luck, hope all goes ok for you x

I had a squint operation 31 years ago and was out next day so i imagine they kick you out same day nowdays. Suffered no long term probs from it.

Know how you feel though..........my 4 year old was very ill earlier this year with severe pneumonia and a collapsed lung in a high dependcy unit for a couple of weeks and had to have surgery. Worst time of your life by far.

Saying that though............maybe his brothers had a harder time as mum stayed at the hospital so they were left with me cooking for them. :w00t: lol

ohhhh poor little one, hope it al goes well xx

omg. YOU cooked Sy

You made beans on toast didntcha

I had a squint operation 37 years ago and I remember it was a little taumatic as I was seven years old being away from Mum and Dad was the worst bit. All that time later everything is ok wearing bifocals due to my age and the only thing I can't do is go cross eyed:)

Don't worry to much about just be a good parent and it will all be ok

Sending love and best wishes xx

I know what you mean when you say worst time of your life, a couple of years ago one of my girls only 18 months at the time had a serouis infection & wouldnt eat or drink n had a really high temperature had to spend 5 days in hospital i stayed with her n watching her body shake & crying in pain when her temperature was so high brought me to tears n all the doctors told me at the time was just have to wait for the antibiotics to work & she will get better.

An for you cooking or well warming up meals out of the freezer you done a better job then me lol, i would of prob gone to the chippy half the time lol

I'm sure it will all be fine - I had the same op in my 20s (pretty scary, but I'm a wimp! ) No problems at all.

When my son had to stay in hospital after an accident, it was pretty hard-going; he has AS and just wanted to go home. With a compound fracture? I don't think so ... Anyway, I stayed with him all day, and my husband did the night shift (don't think the nurses appreciated his snoring!!)

I was with him before the op. He wasn't as young as your daughter so I didn't have to hold him, but did stay until he was unconscious. Couldn't bear to watch them put the breathing tube in (you see it all the time on ER, no big deal, but when it was my baby ... ) Hardest 5 days of my life, but we all got through it.

The suggestion to plan something nice for when it's all over sounds ideal.
