Bye bye, smartie pants.

Tomorrow. Ugh.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this previously, but tomorrow I get to experience one of the joys of adulthood. One of those things that a high percentage of 20-30 year old people get to go through. One of those 'necessary evils' of life.

Tomorrow I lose my wisdom (teeth).


Oh, and have I said "ugh" yet? No? Okay then, UGH.

I had my top right wisdom tooth removed many years ago, and I guess that guy wasn't an "above and beyond" kinda guy, so he just let my other 3 hang out. And now, the two on my left have partially broken through the skin, thus leaving a LOT of room for a fast and nasty infection (which I haven't gotten yet, thank you jeebus) and the remaining one on my right is COMPLETELY impacted into my lower jaw bone.

Isn't that special?

So, tomorrow, at 8:40 am, my loving husband is going to take me in. I know that this is not a life threatening surgery, and I know that it's not "major", but that really doesn't make it suck any less. It's not going to be fun. I don't want to do it, but I want it to be over with, so I'm glad that I only had to wait two weeks from my initial consultation to surgery day. I'll be off work Thursday and Friday, and then go back on Monday, wherein I have to do some new-hire training.

Let's hope I'm not completely miserable.

Pity party for one, please?

I enjoyed lots of macaroni and mashed potatoes after getting mine out! I lucked out with good pain killers and no dry sockets, so I hope you get the same!

Best wishes. I still have all of mine and I should have had them removed but when it comes to my teeth I'm chicken.

Mrs B. said...

Thanks for the well wishes, all! Surgery was this morning and aside from some pain, I'm doing okay. Definitely NOT as bad as I had built it up to be in my head.

Thanks again! :)

So glad it wasn't as bad as you had feared. I need to have mine taken out too but the dentists here are really hesitant to remove wisdom teeth unless you *really * need them taken out...Ive had 3 infections from my impacted tooth already and they STILL won't agree to surgery. Not that Im all that excited about it myself! Its good to hear it wasn't that bad. Did you have general or local anesthetic?
