Need a Social Story about going to the hospital for surgery
We will be traveling to Children's Hospital tomorrow for an appointment with a pediatric ENT. Son developed a growth on his neck about where his Adam's apple would be if he were more than nine. Doctors think it is an infection in a duct through which his thyroid descended in infancy that should have closed off but didn't. The diagnosis is better than I had hoped, but could require a minor surgical procedure to close off the duct. If surgery is required, I'd like to have a social story ready to go. I will take a camera to the appointment tomorrow and talk to the Dr. and Nurses about what to expect and what he should know about. Has anyone written or used a social story about hospitals and/or surgery that you would be willing to share? He also had a first seizure 10 days ago - we will be seeing a neurologist about that if a couple of weeks and will most likely go through an EEG. Any help or advice is appreciated :0) Thank You!
