Hi all, once again I'm crawling out from my hidey-hole seeking some words of wisdom

My almost 8mth old ds needs to have a day procedure in a couple of weeks which will mean him going under GA.

Can anyone share any experiences with their real little ones and GA? I was reading some threads where toddlers have had one but he obviously has no idea whatsoever what is going on and I have no way to prepare him

To say I'm freaking out is a massive understatement. My personal experience is not helping, the 2 occasions I have needed a GA I have reacted badly with very, very low bp and being roused/recovering has taken a long time. I know he is not likely to suffer the same but the thought is breaking me up inside

Any words to prepare *me* would be very much appreciated:-)
