Does the Tooth Fairy visit the oral surgeon?

Last Friday, I had my wisdom teeth pulled, all four! I really don't remember anything about that day, except that I think I was snoring, go figure, and I begged Jeramy to take a picture of me in my state of numbness! (wasn't pretty) Jeramy kept up with Ella all weekend while I did a lot of sleeping. Sunday I was stir crazy and Jeramy, Ella and I went on a drive and then to Sonic where I had the best peanut butter milkshake, minus the straw of course. Since then I have had another milkshake from Dairy Queen and a frosty from Wendy's....Yeah, I don't think that is part of my diet! I have been on a liquid diet and I have been able to eat some foods but my mouth is so sore, I just don't have much of an appetite. So my calories have been cut in half and weight has dropped, but now I just want those empty calorie things because the cold feels so good.

I went back to work on Monday, probably shouldn't have, I ended up leaving early and visiting the Oral Surgeon in fear that I had dry socket, nope my gums are just extremely sore due to my teeth moving and shifting from where they were crowded before. I am so achy and this constant throb in my gums has got to let up!

This is going to be a hard week for me, or couple of weeks! I'm just ready for these little holes in my mouth to disappear...
