I'm sitting in the waiting room of the oral surgeon's office.  

Love it that they offer wi-fi to people in the waiting room.  Isn't that thoughtful?  I can blog while my boys are getting their teeth out.  I think only one or two of the eight have broken through.  YUK.  But this surgeon is good.  He had my daughter's three wisdom teeth out in 20 minutes.  I'm not kidding.  That includes the Novocaine, two shots per tooth-- twenty minutes total.  She came walking out like nothing happened.  I said, "Aren't they going to be able to do it?"  She said, "No, Mom, I'm done."

When Jim first was getting his orthodontic work done he needed three baby teeth pulled.  I went back with him, talked to the doc, then went back to the waiting room.  The nurse said, "He'll be done in about 5 minutes."  I thought yeah, right.  In FIVE MINUTES she came back and told me he was done.  Five minutes, including the Novocaine!!!  He wasn't crying. (He was in grade school at the time.)  He said the shots hurt a little.  That was all.

This time the guys are getting some sedation.  Hoping that goes Ok (Praying!)

I had to be sedated . . . they gave me a pill prior to coming in, gassed me and gave me an IV. I was snookered when I went to pick up my prescription pain killers. I do not remember a thing.

Sounds like you have quite the oral surgeon! Tell the guys I'll pray for a quick and uncomplicated recovery for them!
