I had all four wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday. It was quite the experience.
It took a while for me to feel the nitrous, and I panicked a little when I felt the surgeon messing with my arm. I believe I pleaded “Please, not yet, I’m not ready!” (I’m so afraid of needles!) He told me not to worry and waited a little bit longer, then I felt him messing with my arm again and I began to get panicked again, then I felt the pinch and he said “See? That was it.”…
… then I remember waking up. The dental assistant said “You’re dad is coming back now.”
“Follow the yellow brick wall!” was the next thing I heard from the hallway and I thought “That’s my dad.”
Dr. Karpinski and Liz at The Center for Specialized Dentistry were absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend them to absolutely everyone! Especially anyone who has a lot of anxiety about their dental work. They made me feel so comfortable by telling me everything that as going to happen, followed up to the T (no surprises!), and both Dr. Karpinski and Liz were funny, warm people who made me feel completely safe and at ease. Their absolutely amazing care was so appreciated. I want to send them a thank you gift, or at the very least a card. It meant a lot.
I didn’t do much of anything after surgery on Tuesday except pick up my drugs and soft foods. BTW, all of a sudden I like Yogurt. First seafood and not yogurt, my tastes have been changing like crazy…
Wednesday I was still pretty puffy and kept myself pretty drugged up. I managed to organize and clean my bedroom, closet, dresser and vanity though.
Thursday I was feeling better but my sleep patterns were all messed up and I was still uncomfortable so I took my manager up on her offer to stay home again and layed around the house. Later in the afternoon, my mom took me and my two sisters shopping for dresses for the rehearsal and I got a whole bunch of lingerie as well. I love lingerie…my first job was a lingerie department sales girl at 15, I lied and said I was 16 (I was turning 16 in 2 months and they took a copy of my real ID, so they should have noticed….). I’ve always just loved pretty undies. But no pics of the beautiful bounty will be posted… that’s a little too porno for me.
So today was my first day back to work. I was still on the meds and so I made the decision to go casual for the day:
Comfy jeans and new Star Wars t-shirt. (I ♥ it!). Oh and check out my super cute, totally adorable owl tote… I’m beginning to feel like one of those old ladies who collects something weird with all my owl sh*t…. but they’re so cute!!!
I LOVE APPLES… it’s up their with my Owls obsession… in fact as a side note: I’m pretty much programed to be a fucking elementary school teacher with all my owl and apple shit… anyway, it’s inevitable. I just need to graduate college one day. (I want to be a Doctor of History, God Damn-it!)… excuse my self reflective tangent.
So I fell in love with these and I’ve been searching high and low ever since for a pair of Apple shaped sunglasses. If you have any tips let me know!
I haven’t had any soda since Monday! woo-hoo! Been working the abs. Drinking all water and vitamin waters. I’m pretty proud. I need to go really low calorie from here on out though. The wedding is exactly one week from today and I need to de-bloat a bit. Anyone know of any quick (even if temporary) ways to drops some inches?
Knowing I will need to be exceptionally picky with the cals this week and having lived off of soft foods for the last few days, I was making a hearty, comfort food dinner tonight.
Herb & Garlic Backed Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and green beans! I was delicious… and too filling. I think I’m good to diet. But damn, I waited long enough… I need to slim down just a tab in one week!
TIPS TIPS TIPS!!! Please?
