The Truth About Celia
Oh no, not the briar patch.
How I Lost My Teeth Today
The actual removal was no big deal. He did the one he was most worried about first, and it was completely painless and no problem (he'd been worried it would break when he was pulling on it.) The other three were more resistant to the idea of coming out, and he ended up having to pause and give me more novacaine for each of them. But no problem, really. Once I was numbed up properly I walked home, stopping on the way for the prescription and some other stuff from CVS. Of course, because I'm contrary, I can't keep the guaze pads in my mouth to stop the bleeding completely because I was like to choke because I couldn't swallow with the stupid lumps of gauze in my mouth. So they came out. I've been dribbling blood a little ever since, but that's preferable to how it was feeling.

I slept for a few hours while the novacaine wore off, and when I woke up, I had this hollow, numb feeling in my jaw that took a while to figure out was probably the holes hurting. Numb from drugs segues neatly into numb with pain. I drank soyprotein and milk (least fun milkshake ever) and took my T3. And it took a lot longer to kick in than I'm used to with pain drugs, but hopefully it will last until 5, like it's supposed to. (It still hurts, I just care less.)

And while I waited for it to kick in, I handled tickets from techsupport. working on my day off, go me.

Grats on a reasonably successful wisdom set removal!

Sounds like it went pretty well, yay!

Soon you will be all recovered and once again able to bite people when necessary.
