Poor Hunter

Today was a rough day for Hunter, and he handled it like a pro.

Hunter is getting braces next month, and in order to make room for his teeth to move, he had to loose two.

Loose might to nice of a way of saying it.

They yanked out two.

Hunter was a rock star...with the giggles.

Novocaine and N02 were all he had, and he was hilarious! I told him he was lucky I didn't have my camera. It was definitely not the normal Hunter.

It took a whole 2 minutes to get them out, and Hunter didn't even know they started. It was great. No problems, no stitches and minimal swelling.

I only hope his wisdom teeth are that easy (Lord knows mine were awful)!

Now, a soft diet for today and tomorrow. No straws and no soda. He still has gauze in his mouth, but that will most likely be done after he eats some food. He was so nervous that he didn't eat his lunch...so now he is starving.

Hopefully tomorrow he won't be too sore, as the Novocaine hasn't completely worn off yet. We are keeping ahead with Motrin and a stand by prescription if needed.

I am off to laugh take care of him.

Oh, I so feel his pain. I got braces when I was in my 20's, and they yanked out 4 teeth. Yikes. It'll be worth it, though...brave boy!
