I think I have everything ready for tomorrow. I was scheduled to get my wisdom teeth out on the 20th, but the oral surgeon called yesterday and asked if I wanted to move it up by a week. The last couple of days I’ve been kind of busy trying to get everything lined up. I went through my checklist and I think I have everything.
Soft food for the next few days:
Check. I wish I had gotten pudding or jello or something. Most of what I have is dairy products.
Check and check. That second picture was just way too blurry to see full size. I also have my Wii and some books.
Check! Same photo situation. It took two trips to Kaiser at 10pm to get these babies. That pharmacy is always packed.
Yarn wound into balls for a simple medicated-state-of-mind project:
Check! That’s Brooks Farm Yarn Duet for a Clapotis. Decided to finally tackle the world’s most knit project ever. I then started to worry that it’s not mindless enough and decided to get it started a little early.
I think that’s all I need. I have kind of found myself looking forward to the surgery. It’s kind of messed up. I haven’t been having much problem with my teeth, but I do like to imagine that their removal will change my life in a drastically better way. Even though I had hoped to be able to have room in my mouth. I would have liked to be able to harness the chewing power of two sets of third molars. I am looking forward to the new experience of being under anesthesia and also of being under pain medication. I also think it will be nice to have a four day weekend free of any obligations at all. I don’t even need to feel bad if I don’t do any work on my hobbies at all.
I think all this positive thinking is just setting myself up for a big disappointment. I’m probably going to be in horrible pain all weekend and not able to do any of the fun things I imagine myself doing. I’ll try to take a picture of my face all swollen and bruised up.
I’ve been spending my last hard-food-chewing lucid moments on fun stuff.
You know, the Ostrich Plume Shawl and hard sticky foods. Oh yeah, and an entire Trader Joes pizza I ate for dinner tonight. I couldn’t eat left overs so I just crammed down the whole thing. Right before a cupcake and a Rice Krispie square.
Okay, time for bed. Thanks again for driving me to and from my appointment!
