Wisdom Teeth

The day after Tanner had his teeth pulled, not to puffy.

Two days after Tanner had his teeth pulled...can anyone say CHIPMUNK!

Tanner had to get his wisdom teeth pulled. I had scheduled it for June 10th, the week of graduation and company in town (I know, what WAS I thinking??) He made me change it because I always cook good things to eat when Grandma and Grandpa come. So he got them out June 16th. Our appointment was at 9:30, they took Tanner back at11:15 and he was done at 11:45. Good thing I brought a book! He was out of it most of the day sleeping thank goodness. I had to wake him every 20 min. to change out his gauze, thank goodness he could do that himself!! He didn't look to bad the day after, but two days latter his skinny cheeks were soooo swollen!!! They stayed that way for about three days and every morning, I had to chuckle at how he looked! He said he wasn't in too much pain and every day he got a little better. I was trying to get him to go places with me thinking he might want to get out of the house, but noooo, he didn't want ANYONE to see those cheeks!! He's totally healed now and laughing over my shoulder as I blog this!!

Those chubby cheeks are the funniest thing I've seen in a long time!! I'm so glad he's surviving pretty well. It's probably not the funnest thing to go through.
