   Say So Long to Wisdom....

Yesterday I got my wisdom teeth taken out! Oh the joy! O.o It actually isn't that bad ^_^ The actual surgery felt like it never happened-- and anyone whose been under anesthesia can understand. They brought me into the room and told me to sit down, then immediately braced my arm up and gave me the injection (after conversing with me for a minute or so). They also put a thing on my finger to monitor heart rate, etc. Anyway, about ten seconds after the injection I started to see fuzzy, it was weird. I got suddenly tired and then closed my eyes. I could hear them talking for a few minutes and then the next thing I know I was waking up and this lady was talking to me asking if I could stand up. So I did and she guided me into a resting room. The whole time I was thinking, "What, where are you taking me?, we didn't even do anything yet!" Seriously, it felt like nothing happened! Then I felt the gauze in my mouth and figured out the surgery was over... I was dizzy most of the time, though, and spent about ten-fifteen laying down in the recovery room... The dentists there are funny, too ^_^

I went home and laid down. I didn't sleep until much later, a little nap in the evening and then had a good night's rest today. It hasn't really hurt at all. I mean, I have pain killer that I take, but even without them it's only a little discomfort. The worst part... is eating...

It seems that nothing I try to eat wants to stay down. Only one out of three things I ate yesterday I didn't throw up... And I haven't thrown up since elementary school.. >.< (Not that you need to know that! I'll try not to talk about throw up anymore!) Well, so I haven't eaten much... And it's hard to eat when I do... It hurts to swallow and things get stuck in the holes in my gums! lol...

Ok, well, I'm sure you all don't want to hear about this much more, heh. All and all, it's not that bad, so if you are going to have to get your wisdom teeth out, don't worry about it too much. Of course, everyone is different, though. Some people have a much rougher time. My brother had his out recently and he was fine, but my sister had a horrible time when she got hers out. >.< So, it all depends... But it's not much to fear, especially if you don't like the idea of surgery... because it's like nothing! Really! So, have any of you older folks here (hahaa, I don't mean to call you old! Technically I'm calling myself old asking this) had your wisdom teeth out? Or how 'bout any unpleasant trip to the dentist? I'd like to hear!!

Hope everyone is enjoying their time off! (If they have it!) Remember to relax! Well, I sort of have to, since I get sick/dizzy/nauseous if I sit up or stand up too long... Hopefully that'll change soon! See ya soon!

~dewa mata,

P.S. I want my manga!! I ordered it two weeks ago! And I need something to keep me occupied!! (And if 16 volumes of manga can't do the job, nothing can! lol)
