Wisdom Teeth

The dearest and darlingest husband of mine had all four of his impacted wisdom teeth out this morning at 9:30. The oral surgeon said the surgery went well and that the only thing of "note" was that Andree took his shoes off about halfway into it. Guess he wanted to be more comfortable. :-P

Andree's snoozing the rest of the drugs off now but I had to post the special video we made so he could see how silly he was post-surgery. This doesn't even capture the insanity. He's been making me laugh since he saw me walking down the hallway with the surgeon. When he was all "unhooked" from monitors the surgeon wheeled him out to the car in a wheelchair. Andree excitedly showed him the "half donkey half dragon!" that was in the car waiting. He then said he was good to drive home (ha!) all sorts of other silly things. My highlight of his drug induced sillyness (other than that he's adorable) is that he keeps telling me that he is/looks like Donald Trump and making a silly face accompanied by classic Donald lines like "The Apprentice." and "You're fired." I love my crazy Puppa Bear.

We're so grateful to God for providing the possibility of having his wisdom teeth out as they've been causing him increased discomfort and pain over the last several years. Generous medical care provided through a wonderful job means we can do this without going broke too. Praise the One who provides!!---Now we're just praying for a quick recovery and God's grace as Andree has to refrain from all the yummy foods he loves. Hopefully extra chocolately milkshakes and the memory of his "last meal" at Outback will comfort his poor tummy.

Andree said...

haha, i don't really have any memories until coming into the house and going to sleep. Did I really show Dronkey to Dr. Will? I guess he likes Docs. I'm starting to come back to reality now...

I just came back for round two of this wonderful goodness. (I even laughed at the restaurant I was at tonight because the waiter was named Andree and it made me think of this...and then I had to explain to those at the table.) Thanks for providing joy. I love you guys so much and miss you lots... and lots... and then some more too. Praying for you! Hugs and kisses!
