Tuesday morning I had my one wisdom tooth removed.
I was on Demerol and some nausea medication, an antibiotic and ibuprofen. I stopped taking the Demerol and nausea med Wednesday at 10 a.m. and have just been on ibuprofen as needed and the antibiotic until gone. I'm feeling pretty good. I was on a liquid diet for Tuesday and Wednesday that consisted of jello, pudding, apple sauce, vegetable juice and milkshakes and today I incorporated soft foods like scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes.
Dan has been a great nurse. So grateful for him. He replaced my gauze, made sure I was taking my meds on time at all hours of the day and night and made my yummy liquid meals. :)
Dan says I told him to take a picture of me while I was in recovery, but I don't know if I believe him. haha Although, you never know what a person will say when they are drugged up. :D
Now I look pretty unconscious here. What an awful pic.
Why would I want him to take a picture? I guess so I could blog about it now.
My 2 other great nurses
A few hours after I woke up...yeah kinda still out of it and looking quite terrified. :D
A little more alert now and giving a thumbs up.
Hope to be all better soon! I can't wait to eat normal food again. :)
