Wisdom Teeth

Kendall had her four wisdom teeth out on Friday.  She did great! 

This is Kendall on our way to the dentist.  I promised not to post any of the photos I snapped on the sly after, but trust me, they are priceless!  Just a few notes about the day:

  • Kendall opted to have all 4 teeth out at once.  The dentist told her she could come back in 3-5 years for the top two to be removed but then her parents wouldn't be paying.  She jumped at that opportunity!
  • When she came out of anesthesia she was like a little rag doll.  She couldn't put one foot in front of the other.
  • Upon entering the pathfinder & getting seat belted in, she exclaimed she needed a pillow.  When I said we didn't have one, she crawled over the seat & got the grocery bags out of the back to lie on.
  • She talked the whole way home.  Not that we could understand her with a great big wad of gauze in her mouth.
  • We did understand, "I want my grandma!"
  • I snapped a photo on the sly & my husband whispered, "did you get the photo?" From the back of the Pathfinder we hear, "NO PHOTOS!"  Apparently anesthesia gives her bat hearing.
  • After the anesthesia wore off, she felt perfectly fine.  She couldn't understand why anyone would think having wisdom teeth out was a big deal.  She even went to a graduation party where she bragged about it.  
  • All day she asked for a grilled cheese & was quite mad that I wouldn't give her one.  
  • Then came 7:30 pm.  We got into the car to leave the party & her whole attitude changed.  She was miserable & in pain.
  • Saturday her cheeks puffed up like a chipmunk.
  • She watched a full days worth of NCIS without barely moving.
  • Sunday the pain is better & the cheeks are puffier.
It will be interesting to see how she does on Monday.
