My 17 year old and I have spent the whole day waiting for him to go into surgery. I cannot tell you how brave I had to be! It never occurred to me that I would be near tears all day. I felt like I was flashing back on all of the times Terry and I were in rooms waiting for a test result or a doctor to give us an opinion, etc. I wanted to scream! When they talked about intubating him, I almost fell apart. I think the doctor could see that I was hanging on by a thread. Daniel had no idea I was about to bust. I carefully positioned myself behind his line of vision. All should be fine with him. Quite a lesson in how fragile I really am right now.

Of course you are! I'd be more surprised if you weren't. I'm glad everything is fine with him. Surgery is always scary--even without the added trauma of losing a loved one so recently.

I'm so glad you got through it and he's fine. Even though you were barely hanging on - you DID hang in there.

He should be out of surgery in the next hour or so.

Missy, I hope your son is going to be ok. Every time something happens with Bruce, I get flashbacks of my first husband, hospitals, tests..seems like we are very fragile. That's because we have been hurt, and shattered. Love You!

We're home. He is doing good. Lots of pain, but all should be well. For those of you (women) who want to look it up, and those of you (men) who have strong stomachs! look it up - bilateral orchiopexy for intermittent testicular torsion with 2 epididymal cysts. Thank you all for the encouraging words.
