Alright, first to business… I’m really sorry not to have kept things up around here. I’ve been living lots of life and collecting lots of blog-worth experience… but, have lacked the will to get it written down.
As with many of my posts, I have nothing ordinary or mediocre to report. This blog should be called “All Things Great and Terrible.”
So, here we go, in no particular order.
I had my wisdom teeth out. Perhaps not a big deal on the face of it, but I did things in grand Lauren style, and asked the dentist to completely fuck me up, so that I would have to turn it into a multi-day surgistravaganza and lots of complications. That’s how I roll…. you ought to know that by now! 😉 Want the gory details? Of course you do, and this girl serves them up hot.
So, about three weeks ago, I have this pain in my jaw. It feels like I have a sinus infection, but the pain is intense. It comes back for several days, and finally DW asks me if it might be dental. Huh….yeah…. why did I not think of that? It was definitely dental. My left lower wisdom tooth was swollen and pissed off. I went to the dentist finally resolute, and prepared to get this over with. (I should have done this years ago.)
Now, here’s me: the new and improved me; Strong, brave, responsible, not afraid of doctors… in short, behaving like an adult… finally! First strike: The dentist can’t do the extraction that day because I need to be on antibiotics first. Well, that’s okay, I am a big girl, I can be patient and wait a few days. I wait.
Thursday the 26th comes: Day of the extraction.
–Continued soon… have to go to an unscheduled follow-up with my oral surgeon… seriously!–
