I Can't Even Find Any Humor In It

Six hours of non stop dental work later, I am home.

And in pain.

Surprise surgery on my entire upper gumline. I generally prefer my surprises to be something sparkly, wrapped up in a small box.

The highlight of my day was when the periodontist found out I had seven children, he said that every woman should have seven children if it meant they would look so good. Which was really nice considering I have the teeth of a crack whore from being pregnant constantly for the past ten years.

But then it was a bit creepy, because why was he looking at my body when he was supposed to be working on my mouth. Of course he was older and had to wear glasses with little microscopes attached to the lenses to work on my mouth, so who knows what he actually saw.

All in all, the break wasn't as much fun as I had hoped. A massage chair can only make up for so much.

If anyone needs me, I'll be laying on the couch holding ice packs on my cheeks and questioning my will to live.

jay,
you are right I forgot the disclaimer so I that I not offend my crack whore readership. I hope they forgive me, I was in pain ;-)

chuck,
Unfortunately nursing a baby limits my ability to use the good drugs. So tylenol and advil will have to do.

I am trying to look on the bright side, at least I can still drink coffee since it is liquid! And maybe eating only soft foods for a week will make me lose the last few pounds I have been wanting to lose.

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Sounds like somebody has earned themselves a week away! Without cell phone access!

You don't have to fish, ya know. Just go.

Big hugs. I hate dental pain. It's so pointless. I have to go have all of my cavities taken out and redone soon. First I had to reschedule, then they had to reschedule and now I'm not all that motivated to chase after them so that they can bring on the pain. And yes, I agree that this warrants jewelry...Oh! or a spiffy new camera ;)
