I just want to say

that oral surgery is disgusting. Gross gross gross and foul.

I also want to give a great big thank you to the inventors of local anaesthetics.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.....

oh....and thank you to the folks who brought us anti-biotics, and ibuprofin.

Also frozen peas.

and to the man who went and bought it all. Especially to him.

Yup, oral surgery is disgusting. (I wasn't too keen on the drooling afterward, either.)
And Ibuprofen was a godsend once the anaesthetic wore off.
Hope you're feeling better!

Beth said...

Poor, poor, poor you!!!!

ALL my sympathy and support go out to you in your time of dental-type trial and pain.

just think about the times when people would just pull teeth out in the street, without any anesthetics or anything. You'll feel better. Get well soon :)

Feel better soon!

I have enjoyed your blog so much, I have nominated you for the Premios Dardo Award. Please visit for details.

I'll make sure to have plenty of ice at home by mid February, I will be having oral surgery then, bwaaaahhhhh.
Leaving tonight, following the birds in the South.
Take care. Cafe Zurich is calling our names!!

I hate having my mouth worked on . . . it's just so wrong!

But yes . . . ibuprofin and frozen peas are good.

speedy recovery my dear!

GM...thank you.

Beth...drooling's called bava here...pronounce baba as in baba black sheep....weirdness abounds. I'm also kind of stoned from the ibuprofin, the old grey matter isn't quite firing normally....

Beth, thank you as well...sympathy is nice. Really nice.

ElP, I was thinking about that...horrors. Honestly. Horrors, though they would leave them so long you'd be BEGGING people to take them out. Nasty brutish and short it was. Glad I live now.

JG! Thanks for coming BY! What a nice day to get an award and a de-lurk on! I went and checked out your site, and all those books...looks pretty great! I'll get the award up tomorrow m'kay?

MAR...Chile!!!! How sweet is THAT! Frozen peas my friends, many many bags of them....they are wonderful.

Hula...Peas from you would be great. Impractical, but great!

Diane. That about sums it up. Ugh. Thanks.

Trish. I have to say I completely agree. You're trapped there in the chair wondering why your letting these people do these things to you and you are PAYING them! Terrible. Such a grotesque invasion. Blech. Thank you. I actually thought of you at one point in it all, you posted about dental work last year I think, sounding as miserable as I felt.
