Rendezvous With the Yankers

Friday was the big day - the 9 tooth removal. Eion had the option of going back alone or having a parent with him. Seeing as the whole IV thing makes me a little queasy, I asked him, "Do you want to go alone or have Dad with you?" To which he naturally responded, "Mom!"

Mmm laughing gas!

Determined to be tougher than my fears, I did accompany him figuring it had to be worse for him than it would be for me. There was some yelling but the IV was successfully inserted with one try. Once he was all loopy, we waited in the outer room, where we heard many cries of "Ouch!" as the other patients looked at each other with dismay. We were told this was totally normal. Ok.

E in recovery.

When we walked into the recovery room, E asked me, "Mom, why do you have two heads?" Clearly, we were going to need to stay at the office for a bit. But eventually, he could see clearly enough to be carried out by Dad.

We stopped at 7-11 and bought him a giant coke slurpee and headed home. But after a little rest, he was raring to go around 2pm and wanted a playdate. We were pretty happy he bounced back so quickly. Now let's hope some replacement teeth come in soon to diminish his toothless hillbilly look.
