I spent most of this week at home recovering from oral surgery. I had my four wisdom teeth extracted (upper two were pulled and the lower two were surgically removed because they were impacted) last Friday and the whole processed knocked me out a lot more than I expected. I am done with antibiotics and no longer mainlining Tylenol AND my stitches have been removed so I am on the mend.
During my week away I read a few books (some were better than others), slept, and watched a lot of TV with my mom. Because my apartment is located on top of a Pokestop I also played some Pokemon Go.
I’m feeling much better now compared to a week ago although the recovery is a longer process than I expected and I am spending a lot of time contemplating my jaw, my teeth, and the healing process. (I read a lot about the surgery and recovery process before and after the fact so if you ever want to talk about that, I am basically an expert now.) I think there are a lot of lessons to be learned from this experience but right now I’m just happy it’s over and really want the last bit of swelling to go down.
You also might have noticed: My blog turned nine this week! I’m running a giveaway for the rest of the month and have some other thoughts in my 9th blog birthday post.
I will leave you with a picture of some donuts I can’t eat:
