The Wisdom Teeth Experience - day 2

I'm up to saying a bit more because I have slept a lot, the vicodin is working wonderfully & I am drinking nothing but Vitamin Water to replenish & hydrate my poor self!

First of all, the pictures say NO CHANGE. Well, maybe a little MORE SWOLLEN than yesterday. Particularly the right side... the upper tooth lived up in my sinus cavity & so extracting that thing was a bitch. In fact, in all of my Valium, Novacaine, laughing gas, IV sedation state yesterday that's the one I could feel being tugged & ripped from my jaw. And it was painful!

The bleeding has just about stopped & so I don't need so much gauze in my face. Last night Thing 1 & Thing 2 stayed with their dad so I could rest, however, it turned out to be a very good thing he agreed to that since they both have strep throat! Wugh. So, we had the Boy & Lavagirl & I managed to watch Pinocchio (70th anniversary edition!) with her & help him with his homework... all from bed. J wasn't feeling great himself, but he took pretty good care of me even though I was awake far longer than he was & I woke up about 5 times last night. Sigh. That's what I get for sleeping all day.

But, aside from the ridiculous swelling I don't feel too bad. I'm not looking forward to going in public today & hopefully that won't really happen.

I do leave you with some new pictures... and yes, I'm in the same shirt. Snort.

Give yourself a week and you'll be feeling better. If your needing help getting some rest once the drugs are gone, try some passion flower tea girly. Let me know if I can help !
