Way ahead of the game

Sean is going in for oral surgery tomorrow. He's having all four of his wisdom teeth removed. They are already in, 5-7 years early, and are having a negative impact on the work of the braces. So they are coming out. He will have general anesthesia. He's aware of what's going to happen, and has done his own bit of "research" online regarding both the procedure and the anesthesia. He says that the thing that worries him the most is the anesthesia. Smart kid. He's had it once before, when he was two, and he did fine. But it's always stressful as a parent to see your child go through something that you know is going to be stressful and painful to them.

Since he won't be eating much in the next few days (and anyone that knows Sean knows that this is a HUGE deal) he gets to choose what we have for dinner and dessert tonight. He's asked me to make fettuccini alfredo and a chocolate cheesecake.

Keep him in your thoughts, please.

Michelle,
How did he do? Is he still stuck with applesauce and mashed potatoes?
Hugs to both of you :)
