I Can Fly!

Posted By on November 18, 2011

I may be a little hopped up on pain meds right now. Just a little bit.


So the surgery went well today and I’m currently sans one tooth. It took a bit longer than they expected because as is the norm with every single dental procedure I’ve ever had, it was anything but routine. But, my surgeon was awesome and he got it all done and said we are in good shape. I go back a week from Monday for a check-up and then in about six months, he’ll put the implant in.

The surgery was really fine. Nitrous is amazing. It’s like being drunk, but without the hangover. When it first started he was all “do you want some more?” And I’m all “HELL YEAH!” Actually it was more like “muah huh” because I had nine million things in my mouth. I’m sure he regretted that later when I was so relaxed and couldn’t keep my mouth open.

The problem is that there were so many opportunities for “that’s what she said” jokes that I couldn’t actually say because of the nine million things in my mouth. (That’s what she said.) In fact, after they were done, I tried to make one and I think it came out as “dwas zut eeee erd”. Because there was no laughing. Except for my own.

I was fully recovered by the time Daisy came to pick me up, which was sad for her and the entire internet. I should have made her come home with me until the pain meds kicked in to get some good material. But then again, that’s what Twitter is for.

(Shout out to her for being so sweet and not only picking me up on a work day, but she also picked me up a smoothie from Jamba Juice and made sure it was extra blended and had no seeds. I’m lucky to have friends like her!)

And seriously, thank God for Twitter. When one has this kind of procedure or is sick or suffering, it is tough when you’re single. The cats don’t help and you just want your mommy and want people to listen to you whine and just make you feel better. So really, thank you all. And I’m sorry for all the excessive tweeting.

Now I’m going to lie down and watch oodles of TV. And maybe do a few cartwheels. Because right now, I can do anything! DAMN these pills are magic!

  1. I’m glad things went well. I found your tweets yesterday to be rather amusing. Take care of yourself this weekend.

    I’ll pick you up anytime. That is what friends are for! (Not to mention I have UTMOST sympathy for dental surgery. Blech.)

    Good to hear that it wasn’t a bad experience considering what you’ve been through at the dentist before. The worst is over. The implant part is a piece of cake compared to the extraction.
