Well, I went to the dentist Monday- got all 14 uppers pulled and my new dentures in. I can talk but it's extremely painful to do so after only a few sentences. (Lucky Paul!!) My face is swollen some, my gums and cheeks feel like someone took a sledgehammer to them.....even with seriously good painkillers they still throb. But I'm going to try going into work tonight. I'm waiting til I get to work to take the pain meds so I wont be driving while under the influence, and I wont take one til I get home in the morning for the same reason. I'm praying I have a quiet night with VERY little going on so I can (hide-out/relax) for most of the night. Wish me luck!!
On the bright side- I don't have the slight overbite I used to have and my teeth are all straight and pretty now!!! That part I LOVE!!!! And I'll probably lose a goodly amount of weight before it's all said and done. That part I'm HOPING FOR!!!
Hopefully by Monday I'll be right as rain and be able to talk again. Maybe even be able to eat a sammich, too.
