friday morning i started calling dentist trying to get a consultation to have my wisdom teeth removed. the day before they were hurting pretty badly, and all the dentist i had been calling were out of the office until august 6th. (i think that's weird by the way, i called at least 5 different surgeons who were out of the office until the 6th! what are the odds? maybe there was a convention going on?)
so friday when i found someone who said they could get me in same day to do the consultation AND surgery... i thought i was in heaven. the deal was i had to get to their office by 10:30a and it was 9a. that didn't leave me much time to put thought into it at all, but i figured why not.
i asked my boss if i could head out, she agreed, and i called the mister to tell him i needed a ride. once i got to the dentist though i honestly started freaking out. i had a surgery a year prior that was much more serious, but for some reason the thought of having my teeth pulled was SOOO much scarier.
plus the dentist was trying to tell me a CT scan might be a good idea because he couldn't tell if the nerve on the bottom right was by my cheek or my tongue, and there was a chance he could hit it. if that happened, i might not get full feeling back in my lip! YIKES.
not going to lie... i cried. :( but i was already there and my mister said not to worry. so i went through with it. all four of my wiseguys were removed, and i have all the feeling back in my lips and face. so he didn't hit the nerve! haha all good news.
the past couple days i have been sleeping it off pretty much. my chipmunk face is gone, but i still have some pain. my mister is the best nurse making sure i take all my meds (painkillers and an antibiotic) on schedule. he's also been the food supplier ~ fro yo, scrambled eggs (bad idea), smoothies, yogurt, etc.
on that note ~ my pillow is calling. time for meds and bed.
