Ugh. I'm in Pain. :(

Hi All,

Boy, it's been a while hasn't it? I had all four wisdom teeth pulled this week. Not a pleasant experience. But I was under general anethesia, so that helped a great deal. My mouth is so sore, and I haven't eaten food since Wed. night. It's all been smoothies and juice, which I'm really starting to hate. Oh, and I woke up in the middle of the operation, couldn't feel anything or see anyone just this great white light above me. For a split second the thought that ran through my head was , "Oh, no, you cannot be dead..." That was kind of scary. I panicked and I remember opening my eyes wide and saying over and over again, "I'm awake, I'm awake!". Then, someone said not to worry, I'd be going right back to sleep. And I did.

I have one more week to finish my ms for the Golden Heart. (About 50 pages or so). I forgot if I asked, but did anyone else enter this year?

Well, that's all for now. Hope everyone is doing good!

Oh Kelly! Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth, I know exactly what you're going through. I had to go through the SAME experience a while ago... not very nice! Painful.

Take care of yourself, okay?

Thanks, Yolanda. Today is even worse than yesterday. I look like a CHIPMUNK! I've lost eight pounds since Wed. Gah. If I eat one more can of tomatoe soup or yogurt, I'm gonna scream!

Kelly, I remember that awful feeling. I had my impacted wisdom teeth removed a few years ago, and it was awful. I think they really cranked me open wide because I didn't think my jaws would ever work correctly again. I got to the point I was in tears because all I wanted to be able to do was open my mouth wide enough to eat a sandwich.
