Mothering Thru Melanoma

My walk through the scary world of cancer while caring for my family.

Telling my 7 year old November 16, 2010

My son, Buggy, has been through quite a bit with all my medical crises over the past few years so telling him about the current event has been a painstaking process.  I certainly do not want to scare him but obviously I can not lie to him about what’s happening.  He knew about the mole removal so we have kept the info strictly to that level.  He knows I am headed to Boston tomorrow to have a bigger excision of the mole site so that the doctor can check it out and make sure everything’s ok.  I asked if he had any further questions, concerns, etc.  He said, “Nope. I’m good.” and returned to his DS.  It was the response I had been hoping for.  So far he does not seem to be too anxious about it but we’ll see what happens tomorrow morning when Auntie shows up to take him to school and Mama and Dada leave for the hospital.
