difficult child and I spent the night in a hotel in the town where his oral surgery was this morning. We went to Meet Dave at a movie theater last night. That was a cute show with too much potty humor that got difficult child laughing. I then wanted to eat at Applebees but difficult child couldn't handle it so we just got an order of BBQ boneless wings to take back to the hotel. difficult child's anxiety has been builiding these past few days leading up to this. That is what was going on on Saturday. He has been so fidgety. Nothing to eat or drink after midnight and the "I am thirsty" started at 1:33 am "Mom, it isn't your fault if I die. You were just trying to get me to the surgery." "Let's forget that rule and let me have a drink." I think I should have gotten us separate hotel rooms - maybe even sepeate hotels? LOL I got a cold wash cloth for him to wash is face and neck thinking that may help? On the way into the hospital, "What will happen if I am this shaky when they give me the needle?" I could tell he was super anxious but he did a great job holding it together. The nurse told him he was not allowed to do much today. He asked if he could watch t.v. Why do kids think watching t.v. is actually DOING something? Afterwards, when I was able to rejoin him, he gave me the thumbs up. I gave him paper and pen to write with so he can keep pressure on the guaze. He wrote he needed a bell for his room to ring when he wanted something. On the way home, he wrote, "I'm fine, just the bandaides in my mouth and puffy." "Bandaides? Oh, do you mean guaze?" "Yes, I didn't know how to spell it." So, this oral surgery kid is well on the way to recovery. He is finding the puffy lip feeling weird and wondering when that will go away. Hasn't complained about pain at all!!! YEAH!!! I will need to go out later to pick up his antibiotics. Oh, he did say I have to let sister in law and brother in law know he is not allowed to eat harder foods like steak for five days "Because they always take us to places that have steak." husband is also on soft food diet with a new crown giving him problems - wonder if I will be eating at all this weekend?
