Karson's Dental Surgery

Wow--I'm actually blogging--kind of shocking to even myself! :-)

Tuesday Karson had to have a little surgery on his top four baby teeth. For some reason,that I'm still not sure of, those 4 teeth came in without the enamel on them. Without enamel, teeth do not hold up very well at all. He had four shiny, white crowns placed on those teeth. If you've never had to have a child "put under" be ever so thankful!!!

After arriving at the hospital, trying to keep him entertained.

Talking with the Dr. one more time before heading to the O.R. Just looking at this picture makes my heart hurt--what was ahead for this little guy was not fun!! :-(

Trying to sleep off some of that anesthetic.

An arm this little is just not suppose to have an I.V. in it!!

Post surgery, eating for the first time in over 15 hours--he gladly accepted the graham crackers.

Homeward bound--FINALLY!! The surgery was suppose to take 1 hour--it took two. The expected time in recovery was about 1 hour-- we were in our room for about 2 1/2 hours. So glad it's over!!!

Oh my! Poor Karson and poor mommy. That must have been so hard on both of you. Glad he's doing better and doesn't have to go through that again.

Awwww...sorry, Karson.

It is never easy to see your child have to go through something like that, is it? 8-) Hope he is feeling okay.

Wow! Glad he's doing good now. Can't imagine going through that. I like the yellow balloon! :-)
