Wisdom Teeth

Hannah got her wisdom teeth out on Friday, all four of them.  Today she's a little sore, but doing quite well. But, she did provide us with quite a bit of entertainment while she was sedated!  She made me come back and sit with her, then she decided I needed to take some videos of her. In the first one she thought it was really funny that her face was numb before she got her teeth out.

These ones were after she had her teeth out, while we were waiting for Lyra and Pyper to be finished with their appointments.  In this first one she decided she wanted mac and cheese and pudding for lunch. It was VERY important to her for me to take a video of her telling me what she wanted.So, I obliged. Of course, it was purely since she wanted me to, not to give myself something to laugh at later. (These two videos may or may not still be on my phone. I may or may not have watched them almost a hundred times, and laugh every single time!)

Then she was very upset because her tongue wasn't very long. It wouldn't stick out very far. I tried to explain to her that it just felt short because her face was numb, but she wouldn't believe me. (As a side note, it was like herding cats trying to get her to walk anywhere!)

I think the funniest part of the day was on the way home. I was driving and didn't get a video of it, but all of a sudden Hannah says, "Oh no!" She was very distraught, so I asked her what was wrong. She said, "I can't find my wisdom teeth!" I reminded her that we just went to the dentist and he took them out. Her reply,"Why would he do that? They were mine, I wanted to keep them and put them on my dresser!" Then she started to cry, and she informed me "I'm crying, and I don't even know why, but I can't stop!"

After we got home, I told her she should have a nap. She told me she wasn't tired, but she would relax in David's chair just to make me feel better.I set her up with some ice for her chipmunk cheeks, and tucked her in. (She was very needy! I'm pretty sure that has NEVER happened, not even when she was little!) Then I went to change the laundry from the washer to the dryer and came back in to find this...

Yep, she wasn't tired at all!

Getting your wisdom tooth extracted is quite a terrible experience. It's not the procedure that is terrible, it's what comes after when all the numbness on your mouth starts to fade away. In any case, Hannah seems to have been a real trooper with her procedure. Plus, I have to say that the videos gave me quite a laugh! Hahaha! I do find it excusable for her to take a nap after all she went through. Thanks for sharing that, Tonya! All the best! :)
