Super Trooper!!

Sierra went in for her oral surgery this morning and we were able to do it without sedation. Yay Sierra, you rock!

Removal of impacted tooth w/o sedation---$340

Trip to the mall to make it all better---$100

Getting to see her mom almost pass out and then miss the chair the first try---priceless!

The doc said that he has never had someone leave his office laughing. For the most part, he also sedates kids Sierra's age and younger because they freak out and don't hold still. She just turned on the iPod, closed her eyes, took a few deep breaths and then 7 minutes later it was over. The sad thing is she knew more about what was going on than I did and I watched the whole thing. I guess when the blood left my head and I thought I was going to throw up I blocked the rest of it out. It wasn't even that bad of a surgery. I have seen worse and not been affected. Must have been because it was my baby!

She is brave. I have had way too many oral surgeries - and the are ZERO.FUN.
Thanks for that poster on the side about the next twilight movie - I didn't know it was coming out this year! Cool.
