Hi Phoenix

When i had my op i told my boys everything they were 14 & 8 at the time. Unfortunately i have had several hospital stays in the last few years so it wasn’t as traumatic for them, although the 8 year old stuggles with either my hubby or i not being at home. To be honest i suffered more, kept the details simple, you know Mummy wil have a sore tummy, only a few days etc. I don’t know if it helps ,but i find kids more resiliant than adults, i know it doesn’t help at the time, but in the past it’s something i have always hung on to. Really hope you find the right words, thinking of you all.
