I am going in tomorrow AM and my Son has a virus (possibly strep?). We're having him seen later. Anyway, he vomited all throughout the night last night and is running fever. I am worried I am going to get what he has but not be symptomatic until after surgery. I really don't want to vomit after this procedure....
I can't cancel as this will be the second time due to needing cardiac clearance the first time. I've rearranged my life again (work, kids, etc.) for this and I can't back out on a suspicion or fear of getting this from my Son. But on the other hand....I cannot get sick after having this procedure.
I am absolutely devastated right now. Worried about my Son, worrying about what I should do. There has been so much crap around this procedure that's seriously making me second guess my decision to have it in the first place.
