Behind me

Thanks for all the well wishes for my oral surgery. It went well. One moment I was talking about my work at the college and the next moment I could hear the surgeon and nurses talking. They sounded as if they were off in the distance, but when I opened my eyes they were standing over me.

At one point, I felt the suture thread on the corner of my mouth. And then it was time to go. As male nurse was wheeling me toward the car in a wheelchair, I asked Jilda if she wanted me to drive. Jilda and the male nurse snorted with laughter. 

The afternoon was low key. I spent most of the time on the couch reading magazines and books that I'd been holding on to until I found time to read them.  I also caught up on my blog reading.

I'd been dreading the surgery for weeks, and I'm glad it's behind me.

  3. You do resemble Santa a little bit there with your white ice pack! A fashion statement for this time of year for sure! Hope you a doing good now and not in much pain. I remember one of my sons having wisdom teeth out and starving so he filled up on mashed potatoes.
