I need to have my wisdom teeth extracted with full serious-business anesthesia, and I don't know who I can/should get to drive me home and watch out for me for the day.

My parents have of course offered, and I suppose they remain the obvious choice. But a phone call to discuss the date of surgery with them has just reinforced the dread I was trying to banish. My hopes of a sane, drama-free recovery in their care are low, and I probably won't have the energy or clarity to deal with that, so I'm not very comfortable being that vulnerable and trapped with them.
Unfortunately, I live alone with no other family anywhere near me and, due to being an emotionally distant loser, have few friends at all, much less close ones. With no one I feel comfortable asking for such an enormous favor, what do I do? Ask anyway, just to see? Suck it up and accept parents' offer? Can one rent somebody for these situations?
