The extraction from start to finish lasted fifteen minutes. They numbed me. They pushed on it. I heard a cracking sound, and we were done. I've been chewing on gauze for the last four hours.
We ran to Walmart afterwards to get recovery supplies: ice cream for milkshakes, fruit and vegetables for smoothies (pineapple/cucumber/spinach is actually really good), chicken broth, and penicillin. We were there before the pharmacy even opened. This would prove to be problematic considering Peri had her first swim lesson at 10:00.
We decided that it is important to be able to swim, and Pullman Aquatic Center has an excellent infant swim program. Classes run for a half hour every Friday morning for a 12-week course. Peri did really well. She's a great little infant swimmer.
|Peri is excited to get into the pool.|
|"This is the way we wash our hair. In the swimming pool."|
|Peri can float pretty well.|
|Also very excited to have Mom with her.|
|I'm coming for you, Dad.|
|I'm going to get you, Dad.|
|Bye Dad! I'm swimming this way now.|
I've had a pretty eventful day, and all before 12:00.
