My father in law is going to have his voicebox removed Thursday. My 5 year old son is very close with his grandpa and although they live 10 hours apart they talk on the phone every few day's and they see each other 7 or 8 times a year. If my father in law were closer I think it would be easier for my son, but their only form of communication is on the phone.
Does anyone have any advice or tips that made communicating with out of area loved ones easier after the surgery. I know email and letter writing are going to be very important, but my son is only 5 right now so while I could write the letters I am also looking for some way to get him involved in the communication. He is very concerned about not being able to talk to his grandpa all the time and I want to have some suggestions to ease his mind.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
