To The Doctor I Go

The contents of my fridge: cottage cheese, chocolate mousse, and matzoh ball soup.

homemade chicken soup (nom)

Why?

Because today I'm having oral surgery to remove the metal from my gum.  I'd be more excited if I were getting laughing gas - most fun experience at the dentist ever; thank you, Dr. Loewinger - but I'll be under IV sedation.  I'm actually kind of nervous.  Last time I was sedated for oral surgery was three years ago when a dumbass doctor left a piece of drill in my mouth while taking out my wisdom teeth, and I had a really nasty time coming out from under the anesthetic.

Jon's on nurse duty for the whole weekend.  (My hero!)  Wish him luck.  He probably needs it more than I do - I have a funny feeling that I'm going to be a very whiny patient.

  1. Gah! Good luck! Dental surgery is one of my biggest fears in life. Read Mighty Girl - she's blogging about her teeth, and maybe it will allay your fears with "it could be so much worse" ! Fingers crossed for you.
