t.e.e.t.h.


this is what i look like - nice, huh?

i woke up from the surgery first thinking they hadn't even done anything yet and then telling everyone i was just fine and it didn't hurt at all and something about being supergirl. i tried to get up immediately because I had to pee - they gave me a lot of liquid in that IV. (dizziness, vomiting ensued). i wanted to go in kroger and help karl get my prescription filled but he wouldn't let me (thank god - bloody gauze and drool coming out of my mouth). I kept insisting "I'm FINE" and then falling asleep immediately. I have tried to lay off the pain pills - have only taken about 4 or 5 . they knock me out too much and then i can't wake up and i feel even worse. i ran a fever on and off all day today but am now feeling better. I am attempting work in the morning - we shall see.

i think i may have lost a few pounds - the new diet of milk shakes and mashed taters is working out for me. thanks to everyone who has called and sorry if i haven't returned your call - talking on the phone is not the most pleasant (still swollen).

kat kat kat that sucks about your teeth. at my last dentist appointment i asked if i should have my wisdom teeth pulled because everyone in my family has had it done besides me and when the x-rays came back the dentist assured my that my mouth was h-u-g-e and my teeth have all the room they need. ouch. hope you get to feeling better. call me sometime so we can hang out, as i am officially a central arkansan now. :)

You are a superstar. You were quite coherent and still very amusing when I visited. PS, your label for this post made me laugh out loud.

Ghetto!!! Glad to hear you are recovering.. um.. well? :) I can just see you arguing with Karl about going in to the pharmacy.. *sigh and giggle* :) Be careful for dry sockets!! I didnt get them b/c I was INSANE and constantly washing out my "holes." (gross, whatever)

Pease get better soon. Today I entered you into the peanut brittle eating contest. If you could eat 3 pounds of the stuff, you get $100,000. It's in downtown lr. we need you here by noon. Don't worry about the soreness, I'm sure it will go away with alot of meds.
Carl, it's time for you to take over the blogging. we need you online.

Friedman...kills me! Anyhow, I forgot to recommend the ice packs, but I see you knew! Lifesavers for me during the "wisdom excavation."
