The procedure is very quick, and very routine, but we have been really concerned about him having to go through any type of invasive medical intervention so soon after his open heart surgery. He has been through so much, so recently, and it feels awful to put him through a remotely similar experience again. I took him for an anaesthetic consult last Friday, which was reassuring. I don't have to hand him off to the OR nurse this time, but rather will take him into the OR myself and stay with him until he is asleep. They will also sedate him before starting an IV, which means he won't have to endure any needle pokes. So this will be made as easy as possible for him.
As a child I had the same procedure done. I don't really remember much about it to be honest. But I do remember my dad and the nurse trying to get me dressed afterwards, and puking EVERYWHERE. So I was just wondering...Grandpa, care to take a day off tomorrow???
