Really though- I have questions!!! I have to have posterior vaginal repair surgery a month from today due to a 3rd degree tear from birth that never healed. I was wondering if anyone else has had to have this done, this baby or previous? I have a few questions if so- I of course am discussing all worries, questions, concerns with LO's pediatrician and my doctor as well- I just wanted advice from anyone else who has gone through the same thing
1- I am wondering how long you took off work and how the recovery went? I plan on taking 2, maybe 3 weeks off but am going to start working from home 4 days after. I am a Controller (accountant) and sit at a desk pretty much all day. DS will go to DC like normal while I am at home unless I feel up to keeping him home for the day.
2- I EBF when with DS and I have to stay one night at the hospital. DH and DS are going to spend the night with me. I am overly stressed about DS being at the hospital that day and night as we have to be at the hospital at 5 am! He was going to go to DC like normal, but we just found out that ONE day they have in house training and aren't open. My Mom and DH will be able to help with him and take him home if necessary (only 20 minutes from the hospital). We are going to bring my wrap so my Mom can wear him and lots of toys to entertain him. I think we are just going to play it by ear, but any suggestions would be great!
