I am back from the oral surgeon and have done very well. My appointment was at 8am. We always get there early, so I was a little nervous. Nothing to eat, nothing to drink. Needing some water so badly! I was finally called back to the room where the evil deed must be done. They checked my blood pressure, checked an EKG, then went on to start an IV. I was told again for the millionth time. You have horrible veins, they are too small, too deep and they roll. Yeah, I know this.
But after the IV was started, then the only good part about this occurred. Versed was administered and I was out for the count! I do not even remember getting in the car. I must have slept all of the way home. I slept for a few hours and now I am up, not too much pain.
I had planned ahead and bought soup, and soft things I could eat. But the dentist said I cant eat anything hot for 24 hours. So according to my instructions now, only cold foods. So I was going to eat an ice cream float(my fave comfort food) . Then was told by hubby NO carbonated drinks, no straws. So I am still trying to figure out something I can have. Oh well, that was the last of the wisdom teeth and I am glad to see them go. I have had two taken out 7 years ago. Not sure why they left the other two in place. But hopefully I will not have anymore problems with TMJ. I take out my stress at night grinding my teeth.
I have spent the last hour reading my new Romantic Homes magazine. Fact: Lorri has a serious magazine fetish! I cant seem to stop looking at them. And the holiday issues I have to keep. Who knows what inspiration they will provide for future holiday themes.
I am back to the sofa. Just wanted you to know this dreaded tooth is now gone.YEAH!
Have a happy day!
