Hi, I'm at a bit of a loose end and don't seem to be coping as well as I'd like to; 6weeks ago our son (Arthur) was born just over 5 weeks early and despite several attempts to get him ready to come home he had top have a minor op (under general anaesthetic) on his windpipe last week and we're now back to waiting for him to get better with no real plan. All of the staff at the hospital have been fantastic and my wife seems to be doing really well (despite getting up twice a night to express).
I'm back at work (who have also been really good) where I'm not really concentrating and then get to the hospital for a couple of hours in the evening, where I can do bugger all apart from look at him or occasionally have a cuddle. Despite so many great people the last 6weeks have been really hard and I can't currently see an end to it. I know I just need to pull my head out of my arse but don't quite know how. Please can anyone who's been through similar give some advice.
Finally I know it's meant well, but 'he'll soon be home', it'll all be a distant memory', 'it'll be worth it in the end' and all the other clichés don't seen to help!
Sorry to bitch, but I needed to vent somewhere.
