As someone said when we were at the reception desk first thing, ‘look at his face’.  He was very nervous, obviously scared of the unknown, we did try a bit, but it’s not easy to prepare a 4 year old for hospital, he cried a lot for the anaesthetic, cried some more while the anaesthetic wore off, but coped very well otherwise, and it’s all better now, hopefully, and Sam is as much a handful as ever.  At least we could leave Hannah with Grandma and both go in with him.
