Coming Back to Life...
I have to say, I think I trivialized this whole oral surgery thing a bit too much. I thought, "Hey, I'll get my teeth pulled, have the weekend to recover, no big deal." Well, I told myself a big fat lie.

It hurt.

A lot.

Sunday was the worst. Shooting pains in my jaw pretty much rendered me useless. Eating was almost an impossibility, until I discovered that soaking a peanut butter sandwich in soy milk (yes, I drink soy milk) made it chewable.

Yesterday I came to work and promptly left at noon. Went home, took a happy pill, and slept until DH came home at 5. Then went right back to bed at 9.

But today, however.....is like a refreshing mountain breeze after days of walking in a parched, dry desert.

I feel like a new person. What a difference a day makes! I'm actually in a GOOD mood this morning, all happy and stuff. I've become the Sunshine Yellow crayon again.

I drank my first cup of coffee in 5 days, and was even able to hum along with my iPod on the way to work, and when I'm able to sing in the car, I know things are on the mend.

I'm still swollen, though, and not totally pain-free, but at least now I can take ibuprofen for that and not lull myself into a Vicodin stupor.

And now, I go cheerfully back to work!
