Sweet sweet Electradaddy wanted an update as soon as I felt up to it. I managed to squeeze 2 hours of sleep in this afternoon and I’m suffering on the elliptical at the moment so why not now?
So yesterday I had a “small quick gum graft” done at the dentist. I was told that the doctor would scrape a bit of tissue off the roof of my mouth and use an adhesive to attach it to my receding gums. Mayyyyybe a stitch or two. Well, yesterday I got there and the actual nurse was going over the procedure with me and I started having a panic attack. This sounded much closer to surgery than it had when the hygentist had described the ordeal with me. Then I saw a scalpel. Idk about you but to me “scalpel = surgery”.
It was terrible but in was sooooo grateful for my Bikram white knuckle grip and belly breathing. I managed to not continuously sob and shake like I did during the wisdom teeth incident of 2004. Although I did physically cry out when I felt an incision cut through my palate.
Anyway before they started they had me pop 2 cortisone pills to minimize what I am assuming would have been massive swelling and told me to take two more this morning. Turns out that those were stimulants and that is why I am on the elliptical machine, have only slept 2 hours in the past 37, and my house looking like a crack head cleaned it. I also managed to get out for a B12 shot today.
We drive to LA on Friday so that we don’t have to drive out at the butt crack of dawn on Saturday to not miss our flight! I am really excited. Tomorrow Cash is FINALLY seeing the urologist for his hernia (which actually looks a lot smaller) and I am seriously hoping that we don’t have to cancel everything for a procedure, although it would be more than worth if if he is in pain.
Hopefully I will have time to update on Cash tomorrow. I just finished my 25 min on the elliptical so I am going to clean up an relax now!
