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.

    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.

  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.
