So I had my surgery. I had all four wisdom teeth taken out. I'm still not back to 100%, it sucks. I'm still slightly numb in my bottom jaw. I'm still swollen and the top left tooth broke I guess when he removed it and about a week after the surgery a piece of that tooth appeared and was stabbing me everywhere. I called to ask about that and if I should be concerned about the numbness, they scheduled me for the 17th to come in and remove that piece at no charge. They said if it started hurting really bad to call in the morning and they'd see me as an amergency case later in the day. I called on day 10 and the 17th was 22 days after. The piece of tooth broke at some point and I pulled part of it out of my mouth but I could still feel something up there but it wasn't sticking out as much and it kept moving around and stabbing me in different places. But by the time my appointment rolled around, it was gone. The doctor said that it must have fallen out and that he didn't want to go digging around for it and cause me unnecessary pain since he couldn't see it. If it appears again or another piece appears, he'll remove it. I have another appointment on Tuesday the first to check on everything. He already checked to see if I have nerve damage and I don't so that's great. It means the numbness will go away. He said once the swelling is gone. Tonight after work, I realized that it's possible that I have feeling back on the right side but it's hard to tell where it starts and ends. It's definitely different than how it all felt yesterday but the left side feels the same. It's really difficult still to eat most everything. Food gets stuck in the incisions and I have to squirt it out with this syringe thing I have. I fill it with water and then I stick it behind the tooth and squirt. It's kind of gross when I spit the water out and food particles appear. It means I'm doing it right. Soooo when food particles DON'T appear, I worry because then I think I have food still stuck in there!! Which is bad because it can cause an infection. Sigh. Having HEALTHY teeth pulled just sucks! I had to get two pulled when I was about 13 and it was the worst thing ever and I said I wouldn't do it again and I went 20 years without doing it but OF COURSE the day would come that I have to again have healthy teeth pulled!!!! I'm just really glad I had to get knocked out and didn't have to feel anything. I can 100% handle getting an IV stuck in me but do noooooooot stick a needle into my gums.
So yeah. Painting my nails was a way for me to deal with my depression and helped distract me from the bad emotions so it bothers me that something I used to enjoy and was an outlet hasn't been able to help me. I painted my nails last night but I don't like how they look so I want to redo them. I take that as a good sign. I also have placed two orders today with the two indie companies I shop from and so I'm excited now to see my new goodies. One of the colors I bought was one that I had wanted in early October. I mentioned it in my October 9th post about Pahlish polish. It's called Ace of Fours II and when I saw it was available tonight I was happy and excited and I put it in my cart and bought some other ones too.
Hopefully I'll start posting again. I'll work on some future posts this weekend. And of course when I get my orders, I'll post them. I've taken so many pictures of things I want to post about so I have the photos to go with the posts! I need to at least post photos of my October, Halloween and November mystery bags this weekend.
Well I wanted to keep rambling about things but uuuuhhh I have to pee, lol, so I'll go and pee and end this post soon.
I hope everyone had a great and tasty thanksgiving day. I had my favorite vegetables yesterday and while I love turkey normally, it was hard for me to enjoy it yesterday because of my annoying numbness. It was getting difficult to chew and so I just gave up. This happens a lot and I hate it! I started with the corn and it was difficult too but easier to do than the turkey. The green beans and mashed potatoes were great though because there wasn't much chewing involved, lol. When we go out to eat, I try to always get mozzarella sticks and while I look goofy as hell trying to consume them, they've been the easier food choice at most places.
Alright I have to pee!!! Good night.
