A couple of days ago we had our new operation date confirmed as 15 November. It’s only a week later than our original date so really pleased with that.
Cue a quick trip to the doctors to have his pre-op swabs taken (needed to be done roughly 2 weeks before op). The poor nurse had a real look of panic when she saw the she needed to take eye, nose and throat swabs from a toddler!
To be honest I was with her on this one and had gone fully prepared for an unpleasant half hour or more of trying to hold down/ distract a screaming Billy. Much to everyone’s surprise and relief he was a perfect angel. Just let her do it while sat on Daddy’s lap with me playing with his light-up car and he didn’t even cry! He was duly rewarded with his favourite ‘sweets’ and everyone was happy 🙂
