Thanks guys! We plan to have lots of popsicles, candy ...ice-cream around the house afterwards. Good thing is he's excited to miss school. LOL
Annabanananalise, thank you so much for your perspective. He knows he needs it...it's that unknown fear. He won't have to wear a patch thankfully afterwards...so that will be good.
His restrictions are no playground/outside play for a week afterwards and no swimming for 2 weeks... This is one reason we jumped to do it now in May while in school instead of June. We will be having to find something other than swimming during Memorial weekend....but all is good.
