What/when/how did you tell your children?
Byon 20 Jun 2012
I have scheduled my surgery for August. I'm wondering what others told their children and how long before. My children are older, 12 and 7. I know that once they know then their friends will know, etc. I'm hoping to keep it on the down low as much as possible. I don't want to lie to them, because I've always told them that is the worst thing they can do. However, being vague and saying that I am going to have surgery to fix my tummy will confuse them more I think. (I have IBS and they may think it's for that). Suggestions?
