Wow, what a day Kadyn had. So here is the final review of Kadyn's surgery. They on extracted 4 teeth. Not only did they extract these teeth, they put them in a cup and gave them to me. (EW) I don't think the tooth faerie will take these teeth. She would put her nose up in disgust. Those teeth they said never came in all the way, which caused the horrible decay. His top front teeth are stainless steel bridges, and pretty much the rest of his teeth except the bottom are the bridges. The bottom teeth were not bad and they were able to fill in the tiny cavities with a white filling. Kadyn seems to not be in a lot of pain, but I am giving him Tylenol anyways. Kadyn also got tubes in his ears. They also did a hearing test. I will explain the results of them after the pictures.

|He was so happy, it made me not want to make him be in any pain. :(|
|ALthough he was starving, he still managed to smile. See those front teeth, ya they are silver now. Boo|
|Right after surgery, I was surprised he could eat!|
|His mouth is soo swollen :(.|
So now my reaction when I first saw Kadyn. I walked down the longest hall ever, a nurse was standing at his door with a huge smile. Before I saw him she stopped me, and braced me for what I may see. Of course, me thinking oh it's ok, I can do this. She began to tell me how Kadyn took his iv out, then looked at his id bracelet for a minute, then put his toe to his mouth and then just relaxed. She said they left the IV out because he didn't need it anymore. I walk in the room, and tears fall. My babies face was so big. So, what do I do? I make a joke and say well, your swollen cheeks make you look like your daddy. Sigh. I just have to make myself laugh in order to remain strong so Kadyn heals better.
I am just glad that this is all done and over with.
