|Is it safe? I'd say no.|
I scheduled it on a Friday so I'll have all weekend long to lay about in a medicated stupor and (hopefully) I'll be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Monday morning when I have to resemble a human being again.
Luckily, I have the most awesome in-laws in the world. They're going to help me out on Friday by being honorary toddler-wranglers until Brian gets home. That way, I can go ahead and enter my medicated stupor with no regrets.
As with the last time I had oral surgery, and if not more so now that multiple teeth are coming out, I am planning for a week of eating a diet that resembles Jack's - all mush. The only problem is that there's only so much ice cream and yogurt I can eat. I know, it sounds like a horrid problem to have, but I crave savory foods and most soft foods are sweet. I'm not going to suggest that someone make green bean yogurt, though (someone already has, though...YoBaby makes a Green Bean and Pear Yogurt that Jack used to love). Maybe I'll eat spoonfuls of guacamole.
I'm also hoping that I won't be really disturbed at seeing and hearing teeth come out of my head. Not to mention that I have a wicked gag reflex and have been known to throw up on healthcare providers. That anesthesiologist was probably never the same, but I was in labor so you can't totally blame me.
The groceries have been bought (husband-friendly foods plus yogurt), the house has been cleaned, and the laundry has been...laundered. I'm turning the house over to the care of the husband. God help us.
