He gets a pass...

Aaron's surley and downright mean mood lately is excused...

He had to have emergency oral surgery today to address an abscess in one of his molars that was effecting the nerve. He didn't sleep at all last night. He was overwhelmingly crabby today (and rightly so). We found him a new dentist (and he likes the new dentist, so SCORE!) and they took a look and it was abscessed. Luckily, the infection hadn't spread to the surrounding teeth, yet. And it was lucky that the oral surgeon could get him in so quickly. He no longer has the 2nd from the back molar on his right side. He will also be in some pretty good pain for a while, at least once the really good meds wear off. I'm sure vicoden will be his friend for at least a couple of days. I'm really glad that the severe pain is over and all he has to deal with now is the ache of healing. He also has to take antibiotics to get rid of the infection, but he's on the right path.

I am keeping him home from work for a few extra days. He was scheduled to go back to work tomorrow, but there is no way in hell I was putting him on a plane when he was screaming in pain... And no way I'm sending him up there until it heals for a couple more days. I'm hoping he will stay home till Monday. That will give him ample time to heal up a bit more and get into a routine of maintenance.
