What The Friday?!

So. I had my wisdom teeth removed last week
(Groan! She's going to write about this AGAIN?!)

I had to stop taking the prescribed oxycodone and tylenol 3 because I wasn't able to properly watch LB.
So. I got some extra strength tylenol.
I'm not a pill person. I just don't like to take pills.
So, I only took 1 tylenol at first.
I took a second.
I waited about 4 hours from the time I took the 2nd one, and took 2.
what the friday?
I ended up taking Midol because it actually RELIEVED the pain for a bit!
And as a bonus?
I didn't feel bloated.
So, really. It was a win - win.

But the pain was constant, throbbing and worsening.
I finally went to the doctor.
I had Dry Socket.
what the friday?
Doesn't that sound disgusting? 
dry socket.
makes me think 'dry rot.'
Not only did I have dry socket, but I have exposed nerves/roots.
And that will take about a month to heal.
what the friday?
(the entire time I thought I was just being a wuss)

(but I feel 1000 times better now - - I didn't realize just HOW much pain I was in until it was gone!)
Last night was the first night I got up with LB in about a week or so.
That turd woke up at 4am and did not go back to sleep until 6:30am

what the friday?

And although I'm not supposed to eat them right now,
I went to the store to get more Newman O's for my stash.

Doesn't it feel good to find out you were justified with how much pain you were in. That sounds awful! Glad you are finally starting to feel better

Oh, no! My cousin had dry sockets after getting her wisdom teeth out, too, and it sounded awful. So glad you're feeling better, though!
