Wisdom Teeth!

So this morning at 7am, I got my wisdom teeth outh. As I got to the dentist office, I made Bryce go back with the to the operating room until they kicked him out. I told the nurse how I am NOT a fan of needles and tend to pass out when I get shots. So she put me on oxygen early! :) I was a little nervous...not for the surgery, but for the IV. The doctor put the IV in and it HURT!!!!! Then, She started squeezing it!!! That was definitely the WORST part!! After that, they inserted water into the IV and it made me extremely cold and I was shaking almost uncontrolably. She said that they couldnt start the surgery until I calmed down. After about 15 minutes, the doctor can in with another doctor and wrapped me up in a blanket and after about 5 minutes, I was fine!! Then they added some of the medicine into the IV to knock me out. They told me I wouldnt go totally under. They said I would be able to hear the nurses and know what was going on. Well, they were WRONG! The last thing I remember is when the doctor said, ok you are going to feel a little bit of pressure, and sure enough I felt her tugging on my tooth. After that, I was totally out! I fell asleep for sure!! Then I remember waking up and still wasnt "all there". They put me in a wheel chair and Bryce took me out to the car. I feel bad for not telling the doctor and the nurse "thank you" and I wanted to ask them how the surgery went. They did let me see the spot that they removed. It was bloody and had a really weird shape!! It was a pretty good size too!! They are going to send it off to get a biopsy and I will know in 2 weeks what the result is.

When I got home, I went straight to bed. Bless my sweet husband. He took such good care of me!! It made me love him so much more!! Suprisingly, I wasnt in ANY pain! I went to sleep for about 3 hours and then Bryce had to go back to work! :( I continued to sleep another couple of hours! When I woke up to tell Bryce buy, I had a HUGE pain in my upper left side of my mouth. When I had fallen asleep, I bit down and the gauz had stuck to the gum where they took a wisdom tooth out. It hurt so bad so I took some Ibuprofen and the pain went away. The doctors also gave me Percocet to take for pain. I havent had any pain so far and its almost 5pm here. Im contemplating on going ahead and taking it just incase the pain kicks in and its bad pain.

Thank everyone so much for all of your prayers!!! God definitely heard them and answered them!! Please continue to pray that I will heal fast so I can eat!! :)

Bless you Elizabeth, you came through the surgery with flying colors, knew you would. Hope you can eat soon. The diet drinks like slimfast are very good to partially freeze and drink. The cold feels good to your mouth and the protein in the drink will satisfy your hunger. Don't use a straw though the slimfast or any other drink. It can give you a dry socket, which I'm sure they have already given you all the don't to do.
Love You,
