A long day

Today started out fairly normal and as planned, but it went downhill.

As I sit here, my arms are bruised. My jaw is fairly numb. I have 4 teeth less than I had this morning. I’m on pain medication.

It sounds drastic, but, yeah, I got my wisdom teeth removed this morning. First time ever that I’d been under anesthesia, first time to have to get an IV in the old arm vein, first time to have teeth extracted. It’s been a day of firsts, and I’m ready to get through the next two weeks so I can start eating normal food again. 🙂

Luckily, I’ve got Diann here helping out, even with the gross stuff that comes with this (mmm bloody gauze pads). Best. Nurse. Ever.
