I'm happy to report that I survived- quite well actually. Every surgery that I've had I've demanded to be given NO pain meds, only IBU. Every time, without fail, the Dr. comes in and tells me how recovery will be miserable and take longer due to the absence of pain medication. I am proud to say that once again, I was right. I have minor swelling around my jaw line, and I can definitely tell I had my teeth pulled, but come on, I don't need to be knocked out by narcotics- thank you very much. 

Thank you Mr. W for taking such good care of me, as I drifted in and out of consciousness from the anesthesia. And your patience as I watched "The Holiday" at 2 am because I slept too much yesterday. I am happy that you continued the tradition of stocking up on treats after my surgery. Somehow it comforts me to know that you can't go to work and all you can do is hang out at home and eat Sara Lee apple pie. Myself on the other hand, tomato soup is the entree of choice and dessert is my key lime pie filling with graham cracker crumbs sprinkled on top. yum.


  1. I had my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 17 and it was miserable. I remember my jaw got infected and I had to go to the E.R. in the wee hours of the morning to get a shot. It felt like the whole right side of my face was on fire. So I am glad to hear you had a pretty good experience overall.

  2. You are a super champ!!! Tough as can be. And by the way, your hair looks AMAZING!! I LOVE the back. Love ya
