Post-op

Thomas was wonderful during and after his trip to the hospital. No crying, no complaining, no fighting - he was just a perfect patient. We have to take extra care of him, because he has a very high pain threshold and never complains, so it's no use waiting for him to ask for pain meds. I just gave it to him on a schedule for the first 2 days, because I knew he must be feeling pain and wouldn't tell me. The most he ever did was lean his swollen cheek against his hand, and once he got a frozen container of spaghetti sauce out of the freezer and held it to his cheek (I replaced that with an icepack).

I thought that he'd be out of commission for the rest of the day after his operation, but he went to the computer and started playing his favourite videos, and even bouncing and dancing to the music! He'd have made a great soldier.

Today I can tell that he's feeling much better - he started fighting with James this morning, for the first time since the wisdom teeth came out.

Glad to hear he's doing better! Having your wisdom teeth out is no fun.
