Friday, October 23rd Harvey had an appointment to get his 4 Wisdom Teeth removed at the oral surgeons office in Edmonton. This day has been a long time coming. We’ve had to play out every possible scenario for a month now! He is really nervous! It’s his first time “going under” and I think that is the worst part for him…worse than the pain even! He was loopy and wobbly and confused and whiny for three solid days! This weekend has been full of relaxation for him and constant, vigilant supervision for me (honestly it’s been like watching an infant)! Harvey promises to return all your emails on Monday and if he has already replied (despite my best efforts to encourage relaxation and recuperation) and it seems odd… please forgive him, he’s on pain medication.
Oh yeah and the first thing he requested after waking up…gravy! Piping hot gravy (yes he actually said “piping hot”). And no, just in case you’re wondering, it’s not on the list of liquids you can drink after surgery. Go figure.
