My wisdom tooth had broken in half and become infected and the pain was pretty bad. It would wake me up every single night and I got headaches from the pain. God forbid a piece of ice touch it! I had to wait a week to see the dentist so he prescribed some pain meds and antibiotics but there's only so much pain that they relieved.
Chuck drives me to the dentist and I take two halcion pills to help me relax. While I'm waiting for the pills to work I solve some 3D sudoku problems.
Dentist: How are you? Feeling it yet?
Me: I'm doing fine but I don't feel any different at all.
Dentist: What are you doing?
Me: Sudoku 3D. I wanted to see if I could still do it after taking the pills.
Dentist: Let's have you take a third pill.
Dentist: Nothing?! Let's put some nitrous on you.
While on the gas and 3 halcion I still solve my puzzles. By this time the dentist is starting to get concerned that the sedatives aren't working. Then suddenly......
|Duuuuude. I am so stoned.|
Meanwhile, I feel nothing.
When I woke up, however, my jaw was hurting pretty bad. Funny thing about halcion is that you don't remember much the next day. I think I was a bit of a handful for Chuck but he's patient with me, thankfully.
I was settled in bed and given pain meds and was in and out of sleep. Sometimes I had no clue what was going on.
Tuesday it hurt pretty bad. I couldn't smile and was sleepy most the day. But today I'm able to smile again and even eat a little better. Yay!
I guess all talk low carb fun after the holidays. I'm sure you guys are busy and I have a fun filled weekend planned.
Happy Independence Day! See ya Monday. :)
