My DS is 7, and we found out recently for sure he will be having spinal surgery soon. He has always been very nervous and anxious in general, and is extremely worked up about the surgery. We go to the surgeons office on the 12th of February and we will schedule surgery then, so I he has at least a few more weeks of fretting.
Is there anything I can do to mentally prepare him? He will be in the hospital for at least a few days and is afraid of that, the pain, being put to sleep, ect.
