Pain Free!

The nasty tooth is out, thank goodness. And, I am actually pain free--at least for now. The anesthesia wore off about an hour and a half ago. My mouth still feels weird, and I still have to eat soft foods--but I am pain free.

Don't ask me about how I feel with a hole in my mouth though--I don't want to talk about it.

Gracie has been a very good Mommy's helper today; despite the fact she was nervous to see me when she got home from school. She wouldn't come all the way in to the bedroom where I was resting. She kept looking at me like a deer in headlights. My face was very swollen and I had gauze in my mouth. Daddy picked her up from school and told her I was okay and talking kind of funny. We thought that would lighten the mood, but she keep getting upset and telling Daddy "See, she doesn't talk funny!" A hug, a Happy Meal on the bed, and a few minutes seem to bring her back to normal though.

Thanks for all of the well wishes. The dentist did say I may have some jaw pain--I got a nerve blocker. But, for now, I seem to be fine.

I'm so relieved to hear this! I was worried about you.

I too am very glad you finally got to the dentist and had things taken care of. Of course I have to say: "Sometimes Mommies need to do things right away instead of putting things off. Maybe having to wait an extra couple of days in severe pain was payback for waiting months before going to the dentist". ;) I hope you have scheduled regularly visits.
