Can you say OUCH!!

To start our Spring Break off right, I thought "Why not get oral surgery??" Silly me!
Actually, as it turns out, Brendan needed his wisdom teeth out and I had some crazy cyst thingy growing in my cheek that needed to be taken out and sent to a lab to make sure it wasn't cancerous - my dentists' words were "It's PROBABLY benign, but we better make sure". Are you kidding me? PROBABLY? Well, I feel so much better thank you!
So, with no school to be missed, Spring Break was the only obvious choice. Everything went swimmingly, no complications, no bad reactions. But let me just bring you along for the ride home with a 17 year old coming out of anesthesia...
Brendan - "I chan taaa"
Me - "What???"
Brendan - "I chan taaa"
Me - "WHAT???"
Brendan - "I CHAN TAAA"
Me - "I can't understand you, you can't talk! Oh, that's what you were trying to tell me..."

Driving down the freeway, I look over to see him putting his cell phone to his ear and mumbling into his phone!
Me - "Brendan, who are you calling???"
Brendan - "I don't know"
Me - "Hang up you dork!"
Brendan - "I'm trying to conversating"
Bahahahahahaha! So I took the phone from him to keep him from embarrasing himself too badly.
Have you ever seen an episode of "Intervention" on A&E? I have, and I sort of felt like I was watching one as we drove home. Experiencing your 17 year old on anesthesia seemed a whole lot like watching the addicts on that show, it was a surreal moment for me as a parent - I pray that I never have to live through seeing my child act that way due to drugs or alcohol!
More conversation on the drive...
Brendan - "I feel like I have Downs Syndrome"
Me - "How would you know what if feels like to have Downs Syndrome?"
Brendan - "I don't know, I just can't think straight, see straight or talk right"
Me - "I still don't know what that has to do with Downs Syndrome"
Brendan - "What are you talking about Downs Syndrome for?"
Me - "Brendan, please stop talking now!"
Brendan - "OK Mommy, I love you! Can I go dirt bike riding later?"

Oh my goodness, I think it's going to be a long day!

Hahahaha! I remember Kellie did the same thing last summer when she had her wisdom teeth out! I know exactly what you mean about watching your kid on drugs!!! Not a pretty sight! It was one of my fondest bonding moments with Kellie though - and she'll never even remember what we talked about!!! HAHAHA!

Oh, Heather, that is exactly how it was with Billy when I was driving him home, only he tried to open the door and get out of the car, because he needed to "go back to the Dentist to have his teeth out!" Scary, huh?
