Well, the worst is over...


Wow. I can't believe she did it! It's amazing what forking out a couple hundred bucks for a little sedation can do for a child that has quite literally been known to yell at the dentist that he is "destroying me". Oh yes brothers and sisters....it's true. Or there was the time that she told the dentist that he was the worst person in the world. Yeah. I made her write an appology letter for that one. Needless to say, I wasn't entirely sure what today would hold with having 4 teeth extracted. I knew once she was asleep that things would be fine, but boy...wasn't quite sure how getting the IV would go. Surprisingly enough with a little help from the ol' happy gas, she survived it. IV and all.

One hour of surgery later miss maddison is 4 teeth lighter, and so far so good. It was an interesting ride home repeating the same conversation over and over between the tears that yes in fact she did have 4 teeth pulled out. Her response...."WHAT???? You mean I had teeth pulled out? Yes sweetie, you did. WHERE? On the top? Well you had 4 teeth taken out. Two on the top and two on the bottom. I DID? Oh...." Repeated ohhhh....5 or 6 times.

She's a little more "with it" now and has actually eaten some lunch and come to terms with her missing teeth. Next step....braces!

What a trooper, even if it wasn't entirely voluntary.
Give her my love. She is going to be a beautiful brunette with perfect teeth and it will all be worth it.

Oh my goodness. I love the picture you took to document. I had IV sedation in college when I had my three wisdoms extracted and I was an other worldly experience. Tell her to take it easy...I ended up swallowin a piece of gauze and not even knowing it! UGH! Thanks for all your kind comments.
Hugs,
Misty

Poor Dramaddison. I hate the dentist too. Glad she did pretty well.

You're Destroying Me??? That has to be the funniest thing I have ever heard, especially because I can hear the little drama queen shouting it at him in my imagination...She cracks me up!
