Yanking Out Prima Donna's Wisdom Teeth

Prima Donna's appointment with the Wisdom Teeth Only surgeon was at 11:00 this morning. She didn't get in until late last night, so it wasn't too difficult for her to fast food and water for five hours before we got there. One of her teeth was actually coming in, so she was having a fair amount of discomfort and had requested that I make this appointment.

The first thing (after piles of paperwork) was an X-ray. We were surprised to find out that she only had 2 wisdom teeth, but of course they were in adjacent quadrants. The entire surgery was less than 30 minutes.

She came out in a wheelchair with these cute little ice packs for her cheeks and a handful of prescriptions.. She was hungry and a bit loopy, so we stopped by Wendy's and I bought her a chocolate Frosty. When we finally got home, I helped her get settled, and then I made a quick trip to the store for needed supplies (her meds, pudding, ice cream...).

By 5:00 she was feeling so good that Drama Queen took her back to Ogden so she could rest and recuperate on her own without all these interruptions and little kids running around. I'm so proud of her for taking care of these teeth. We tried a couple of times when she was in high school, but now it's done and she can be ready to start back at Weber soon... or maybe find a job...

So happy that Prima Donna's wisdom teeth extractions went well. She is fortunate that she only had too. I remember caring for my daughters when they had theirs out. It wasn't fun. However, I like how they come out with ice packs right off.
Blessing and hugs for her and you!
