Quincy is Home

He made it through fine, but the dentist put on six crowns instead of the planned two. He said that instead of doing the fillings, he'd just go ahead and cap those teeth also. It only took an hour.

The Verced at the beginning was really hard to get down him. He spit some out and I think he might be permanently red in some places. Once it kicked in, he was very funny. Falling over. Laughing. He was happy to leave with the nurses.

The anesthesiologist told me that not only would he have a mask, but they were putting a tube down his nose and throat to help him breathe and he had an IV.

He was crying when we got to go back afterwards. He ate a push-up type popsicle to get something on his stomach. Then he screamed about the IV still in his leg and kind of clawed at it. They had just given him morphine, but you wouldn't have known it. After 15 minutes, they took out the IV and gave me directions for dealing with him (fluids, soft foods, codeine) and sent us on our way.

We're home and he's sleeping. Now I just need someone to go to the store and fill his pain med for me. I'm the only one awake in the house!

I'm glad he's okay. Tess has four cavities and I'm pretty sure that's what they will do for her. I would go to the store for you if I was any closer.

I left something for you on my blog. :)
