Bye Bye Wisdom Teeth...

I'm going to the oral surgeon in the morning to have my wisdom teeth out. Thankfully, there are only two and they're erupted... mostly. I'm also having a molar with a bad root canal, in the back on top, pulled. It has a fistula, which means that infection is leaking out of my gums. These three teeth are my biggest dental issue so getting them taken care of is making me feel awesome.

So far, I'm not really nervous, but I feel like I might be in the morning. We'll see. She gave me Vistaril to help take the edge off and to dry my mouth out. I'll also be knocked out, so it's a bit like going to sleep and waking up with gaping holes. I feel okay about that, even though I know that it's going to mean several days of laying on the sofa moaning.

Obviously, I won't be around for a while. No bloggy, no Facebook, no Twitter. Just a whole lot of sleep, ice cream, and protein shakes.

Wish me luck!!
