No, you are not over protective. You are a loving mommy. My Dart goes in this Sunday and I, even after as many as I have done in the last couple of years (around 50), am petrified. The last time I took six siblings in to get done I came home with five. That was not so long ago I don't remember the pain of having to bring home one that didn't make it through the surgery.
It is still very painful, very hard to think of. I keep telling myself it was a fluke but....... the thought is still there. It still hurts. I will be sitting on pins and needles until I can pick him up in the afternoon and see for myself he is ok.
