I unexpectedly had all four wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. I have had my wisdom teeth fully in for years but have always known that they needed to be taken out. I waited because I have such a high fear of being in the dentist chair. Well, over the weekend, one of the teeth started to fall apart and I knew it was time. I made the call Tuesday and was lucky enough to be able to have the surgery on Wednesday (the surgeon is only in SB once a month). I was very nervous that morning, I couldn't even laugh at Chauntel's jokes. Nor could I stop my leg from shaking. They took me in and got me hooked up to an IV and a half hour later, I was awake and questioning whether or not they had gotten all four. Are they sure they got all four? :) I felt them pulling one of the teeth out and I was so sure it was the first tooth but it turned out to be the last. A few minutes later, I was walked into the recovery room where Chaun met me. All in all, not a bad experience. I am just so glad to have it over with. I am recovering here on my couch at home. I am a little tired of oatmeal, yogurt, and applesauce but it's all fine. Soon enough I will be able to have my cheeseburger and salty fries. Oh, and I am not swelling up like some people do. I have some slight swelling but no chipmunk cheeks. Whew!!
Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. :) This is a very common surgery and I feel a bit silly for having put it off for so many years. I had it so built up in my head to be horrible but it went fine. Thank you again!
And a big fat Thank You to Chauntel. BFF's!!
