Both of my boys need an operation for undescended testes. The surgeon asked if I want them both on the same day or different days. My immediate thought was different days so that I could give them each attention, but he said lots of mums have both at the same time so that they will share a room in hospital, get it over and done with, no need for babysitters for other child, one lot of parking/packing/stressing etc. If I did that I would get the two grandmothers to come with me and assign one to each child so that they would always have someone with them, and then I would go between the two.
What do you think? In terms of practicality it make sense to do them together, but I worry that I won't be able to emotionally be there for both?
