Alex had to have a pre-surgery check up at the doctor this
morning. He's not really having surgery, but he's having two
cavities filled in his wisdom teeth in a couple of weeks, which
has to be done as an outpatient surgery procedure.
You may remember, Spencer had to have a similar thing
done back in February. Geesh! This mama is ready
for this kind of thing NOT to happen anymore!
Having your child under general anesthesia is stressful!
Especially if they really don't understand what's going on.
Alex was ok until the nurse used an automatic blood
pressure cuff on him and left it running a little too long
while she typed in some info on her computer. He has
anxiety issues and that got him all upset. But he recovered
well and even gave the doctor a high-five. Whew!
Not going to his day program was a treat, but to make
the day a little more special and celebrate that we survived
the doctor's office, we went to McDonald's for lunch
and celebrated with quarter pounders and fries.
A nice distraction and he seemed to forget all about the
earlier appointment. haha....he was so cute standing at
the counter to order. The anticipation was all over his face.
The only time he got upset was when I wouldn't let him
eat a french fry that dropped on the floor.
I had to fight him for it, but I did win! lol.....
