Re: Question about sibling class...

My son will be 3 months shy of 5 years old when his brother is born.

I am mostly concerned with him dealing with me in the hospital. I have to have a c-section (unknown recovery from my high risk status and risky birth... 4 doctors need to be there just in case), and I have only been away from him for 14 nights total his whole life. 5 of those were when he was just an embryo, and 6 more when he was first born (NICU), the other three were because of a illness I got because of chemo where he couldn't even visit me. He is used to being in hospitals, I just don't know how he is going to react to me being there and him going some place else. He didn't do well with the chemo hospitalization (he was 20 months old at the time). That is what I am hoping the sibling class will help him with.
