On Valentine's Day I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed!
Yes, I know, I'm very romantic.
And yes, I am 38 and still have all my wisdom teeth.
Well, they were all in and there was no need to ever have them removed until I broke one. Yep, broke it bad and the dentist was really concerned an infection was going to set-up so I opted to have them taken out.
Thank goodness for ice packs and pain meds, because having surgery on your mouth is so not cool. I was hurting.
I basically laid in the recliner for 4 days with pain meds and soup to keep M.E. going.
Thank goodness for having the Olympics to watch all day and night.
Day 3/4 were bad. It HURT a lot!
Thank goodness for the Man, who was super awesome at taking care of M.E. and getting M.E. what I needed and keeping M.E. fed!
By day 5 & 6 most of the swelling was down and the bruises were showing.
Thanks Babe for the pic.
Day 8 I returned to the surgeon to have the stitches removed and that hurt again and I was pretty sore until yesterday.
Today, I'm feeling pretty good. No pain meds, no ibuprofen. Still eating mostly soft foods and resting still. I lose energy fast, but that may be because I can. Mamaw is here.
Yep, she flew in the day after surgery to help with the boys and M.E. and has been such a blessing.
She has done so much for M.E. with laundry, dishes and the boys. I'm so grateful, she could come out. I would probably have an infection and/or be really sick without here having been here.
Looking for forward to the rest of the fam coming here this weekend.
I get to see my sister - it's been 4 months!
