Ouch

The wisdom teeth are out! Although I do have some shrapnel in the form of the roots of one tooth that had to be left because it was so close to the nerve, the risk of cutting the nerve was too great if they had gone ahead and pulled it. So, they cut it off and left the roots. Cool.

Mom ordered pizza the other night and it smelled sooo goooood. So far I'm only able to eat completely smooth things like yogurt, juice, milkshakes, and sorbet. I hope I lose 20 lbs. Then I can market it as the Wisdom Tooth Diet. Somehow I don't think that I'll lose 20 lbs, probably due to the milkshakes. The healing powers of chocolate milkshakes are beyond measure so I'm sticking with them. I'm no quitter.

When I had my wisdom teeth out I ate mashed potatoes for two days. I hope you're back to eating pizza soon! :)

You just helped me plot evil. When K has hers out in October, if she has done anything to irritate me prior to surgery, I'll spend days making her favorite foods that she can't eat!

Glad it went well!

Funny story - When I had my wisdom teeth out, I discovered that it hurt to talk . . . in English. The way I needed to move my mouth to speak Chinese wasn't painful though. So, I could chat with my mom, but not my boyfriend at the time.

Do not, under any circumstances, drink out of a straw for like, two weeks.

Dry sockets? NOT FUN.

Feel better, sweetie. I hope they gave you good drugs!
