This Too Shall Pass


So.  Wyatt's wisdom teeth are out.  Surgery went fine.  But that poor kid... the nurse came out while he was waking up and said, "He doesn't take much medicine, does he?"  No.  Apparently he's kind of slow to come out of anesthesia.  And he didn't feel too great either.  In fact, for the first time ever I can say that I've seen someone looking kind of green, and that's not just a figure of speech.

And then there's the gauze they wanted him to be biting on for awhile, to put pressure on the incisions and promote clotting.  Well, let me just tell you one thing:

gauze + braces = a crazy mess


Meanwhile, while I was with Wyatt at the oral surgeon's, Kerry and Tate completely forgot he (Tate) was supposed to go to work.  Thankfully his boss (a personal friend of mine) called to remind him, so he got there late.  She hires kids and knows it's their first job and she's pretty forgiving... just don't let it happen again :oS


In brighter news, Gunnar called from Disneyland and is having a fabulous time!

And today is a new day.

awe! poor kid! our oldest had hers taken out after braces but she didn't care for the surgeon at all. His hands were big and she said she came out of while they were still working on her! UGHHH!
Our middle has her first job this summer. Oh boy. One more thing to keep up with and remember (she isn't around when I need her!) :)
Hope Wyatt heals good and is feeling better soon.

I have such a rosy memory of my own wisdom teeth surgery. I just slept all day. Our older girls had a rougher time last year -- Abby's stomach didn't tolerate the paid meds. Hope Wyatt is over the worst of it soon!

Hey! How are you? I'm such a lazy blogger that I don't get here often enough. We just had a wisdom teeth thing also. And yes, our patient was very "green" and all of that..ugh. His sister helped care for him. Anyway, hope your guy is healing OK.
