haven't felt up to blogging

Last Wednesday, I had oral surgery to remove a cracked wisdom tooth. Seemed all would be well. I used the conscious sedation option this time because of previous bad experiences with just the local stuff.

Now a week later and still in pain, even when I know I have been over-self-medicating just to be able to function. Got mommy stuff to do.

Went back to see oral surgeon this morning in fear of having a dry socket. Not this time. He said that the tooth was impacted and he had to cut into the bone. He prescribed a different pain med since the Vicodin/Lortab stuff made me sick. I can't handle the good stuff. This one seems to take the edge off. I do not expect to be pain free.

Once life gets back to 'normal' and I feel like sitting up. I'll post some things that have been swirling in my head, while on and off the meds.

Be back soon.

I decided to be nice and NOT post any pics on this subject.


  1. So sorry to hear that. Hope you get well soon.

  2. Oh Baby! Sending hugs your way!

    Hope you will be pain-free soon! I told future hubby what you were doing to "self-medicate" and he thinks you're nuts!!! :-) Stop It! See you when I get back from Canada.

  4. get well soon - u know i know a thang or two bout oral surgery

  5. Thanks all, much better now, but not 100%.

    and 'the girl...', I am following the rules now in my "self-medicating". I switched to Naproxen during the day and I have to be careful of what I ATTEMPT to eat. No steaks yet.


release your mind...what do you think?
