Done and home

We are done and we are home, I mean, hotel! No really,we are. I think this is a record post op for him. I went back to see him and he was wide awake. We were on our way a half hour later. His teeth actually look pretty good. One thing for kids that don't eat by mouth, they don't get the sugar, and don't get the cavities. He didn't have a single one. He did have tarter, but it was actually acting as a barrier to the teeth he was grinding. His gums are way down on his teeth, but he isn't going to mess with that unless he starts getting infections in his gums. All of his adult teeth are indeed behind his baby teeth, but because he's never eaten by mouth, those baby teeth are taking their time coming. His canine teeth on top are still not in. Because of this he probably won't lose baby teeth until later either. So we don't have to worry about loose teeth just yet.

When I saw the anesthesiologist after I said, "see, I told you he'd be fine. He's much scarier on paper than he is in person!"

Now we pack up because tomorrow, we are on our way to California!
