“My level of anxiety is very high now,” Jen says about the medical procedure Will is having.

“My son, who I’ve only had for 3 months now, is about to undergo major surgery and I know what all the things that can go wrong are, so yeah, I’m completely freaked out inside.”

While she and Bill play with Will on his hospital bed, they’re masking their mounting fears.

“I’m definitely trying to hold it all together for him,” Jen explains of their stoic faces and forced cheer.

“Because the last thing for him is to see us freak out.  I knew this was going to be awful.”

Breaking down as they wheel him to surgery, Jen says that is the worst part of the day.

“I hated seeing them take him away. That’s when I feel like I lost control.”
