If I Could Kick Someone in the Face Right Now...

It would definitely be my oral surgeon from 10 years ago.

He said my wisdom teeth were so underdeveloped that they would never cause problems, so instead of having an easy quick wisdom tooth removal (and have my parents pay for it), I had to get them out last weekend. And ten years later, they were so overdeveloped that the roots were impacted so severely into my jaw bone that they had to drill into it.

Seriously. Worse than recovering from childbirth. Because even waking up 5 times a night to a newborn crying is much better than waking up 5 times a night because you are crying.

And speaking of newborns, Friday (the day I got my teeth out) was perhaps that best day I've had in 29 years. For reals. I was so doped up on valium and other good things that I pretty much slept all day. I would wake up every four hours, wimper, and Rust would come by, spoon feed me apple sauce and then I'd fall back asleep. I'm pretty sure I haven't had a day that relaxing and wonderful since I was 6 months old.

Regardless, it has now been 11 days and I still can't eat solid foods. And no, swallowing mac and cheese whole doesn't count!

I am so sorry! that is no fun. I just got one tooth out and it's been ok so far. My other three come out in a few weeks and I'm hoping they come out easy. I can't imagine not eating solid foods for over 10 days...I got tired of it after a few days. Hope you get better soon

that sounds awful!

for some reason I don't think your blog updates on my blog roll so I haven't seen your posts lately. Plus, since you don't comment on my blog I've decided to quite reading yours! =) Just kidding! I hope you are NOW doing better?

When I got my wisdom teeth out Preston stopped by with 1/2 the wrestling team to make fun of me for how swollen I was. Nice, huh?
