My husband is having his second shoulder surgery (same shoulder, they have to go in and remove scar tissue and manipulate his arm bc he still can't use it from when he had surgery in October) tomorrow and I'm going to have to leave Porter almost all day (probably 6 or 7 hours). It makes me so sad to leave him that long. And it makes me extra stressed and anxious because not only is my husband having surgery, but I have to sit there and be without my baby and worry about him all day. I suggested that maybe his dad or both his parents could take him and I could stay with the baby instead, but I don't think that's gonna happen. Porter only sleeps in the bed with me or when I wear him or in my lap/arms nursing. He's going to end up waking up in the morning HOURS before he normally does bc I won't be next to him to just nurse him back to sleep. We have to be there at 5:30 am. Porter never gets up before 10 or 11 (we go to bed late at our house, so he likes to sleep in, lol), but he does wake up a lot and just nurses back to sleep until he's ready to get up. But he will probably wake up no later than 7 and that's if I can nurse him in his sleep before we go. I'm just afraid he's gonna be such a grump for them because he won't get enough sleep and then they may have a hard time getting him to nap. He's inconsolable sometimes when he gets too tired. He won't even nurse sometimes. And he's used to being with me all the time! I know he will probably be fine, he was last time (though he was sleeping in his crib and napping in his swing back then). Ugh, I hate hate hate leaving him!!
