Do you tell your children? My oldest son is 5 and I don't really think he would understand..I've kind of just been avoiding the subject around him and kinda sneaking around his back about the cancer... I don't really feel like it would be beneficial to tell him a bunch of things he won't understand. I have some people telling me that I NEED to tell him ( im going into the hospital for surgery Jan 5th and family will be taking care of my children while i'm in) I pretty much just told him that I have to have an operation, but i'm avoiding the "cancer" word at all costs...Anyone else have any experience with this?
