When waiting for any type of medical procedure, do not go looking for info on it on the Internet or ask a question about recovery time on a message board unless you are prepared to hear the absolute worst. Please, someone, tell me that having all 4 wisdom teeth removed while awake with only local anesthesia will be OK. Please. Anyone. NOW!
I need to revisit my list of happy things before I puke due to nerves.
Tonight is BabyGirl's debut as a cheer leader. Last night she came home with her cheer camp t-shirt, Mardi Gras beads in the school colors, pom-poms, and instructions to wear black shorts with her shirt for the game tonight. Um. She doesn't own black shorts. And we live in the middle of no where. If Wal-Mart doesn't have any, we're up a creek. Daddy asked if we had a sporting goods store in town. I just laughed at him. Luckily Wal-Mart had one pair of black shorts in her size. Now I have to convince her that they'll be OK even though they have a butterfly printed on the leg. Maybe I'll just take them into school when I pick her up & show them to her teacher so she can give BabyGirl the official OK (since I have no idea what I'm talking about...ever...just ask my daughter).
I was worried that I'd have to get a pattern & fabric & whip out a pair of shorts on my sewing machine today. I'm not good with deadlines that fall into the "hours" category.
I think I need a nap to prepare for the excitement.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, my tooth isn't hurting all the time. In fact, it didn't bother me at all yesterday until after 8 pm. I'm hoping it stays that way. I can deal with occasional pain. It's the chronic stuff I don't do so well with.
