Jack did great this morning! We got to the dentist office around 10 and we talked with anesthesia and the dentist for a bit and then got started. Dr Turner gave Jack a little shot in the arm of a medication to knock him out a little bit so he could take him from me to get the IV started. It was definetly different from being at PCH with Dr Maze, but it went well. Jack fell asleep within a few minutes and Dr Turner took Jack back to get started. About a hour and a half later, they came out and got us and took us back to see Jack sleeping soundly. We looked at his teeth and they look wonderful. His little cavities are gone and he does have some caps on this back teeth but it is a great feeling knowing his teeth are healthy again. Jack woke up in a pretty good mood and wanted to play games on my phone and then go home. He complained on the way home that his mouth hurt but I think it was more that his mouth felt funny because it was numb on the bottom. Once we got him, he started eating and really hasn’t stopped. He is running around now like a crazy kid and very happy. All is good! We go back in about 4 months for a cleaning but other than normal cleanings, hopefully he is all done with dental work for awhile!
Nikki went with me today since she knows I don’t like to be alone when Jack is under anesthesia. Today is Nikki’s birthday and I am sure the dentist office is not the place that you want to spend your birthday, but she did! Happy birthday to my little sister. I am not sure we would have made it through the past couple of years without her. She has been my rock when Zac is gone and has gone above and beyond for my family. Thank you Nikki for everything! We love you!
