F is for Foggy

F is for Foggy, 'cuz that's how I'm feeling tonite!  I took the two prescribed sedative pills shortly before we walked out the door at 8:15 this morning, and the last thing I remember is walking into the dentist's office and someone guiding me back to the room. I don't remember the room, the chair, the dentist or any of the procedure which ended up lasting more like five hours.  John came to take me home, I don't remember any of that either!  He has several humorous stories to tell of his efforts to guide his drugged out wife up the stairs, into the house, and into bed. 

The next thing I know, I woke up and saw sunlight shining under the bedroom door. I thought "Oh no, it's late, and we've missed the appointment!"  In reality it was after 8 PM and I'd been soundly sleeping all this time. 

I'm up now and moving around the house a bit, but my mind is still pretty fuzzy and I walk like I'm drunk, bumping into doorways and such.  Thank God for a loving, attentive husband who has been taking care of me all day!!  Surprisingly, at the moment my face doesn't hurt all that much.  The top - front and right - where most of the work was done feels a little tender, but that's it.  The pain meds are probably still wearing off.  Will find out soon enough!  But I have more if I need them. 

It is exceptionally nice to pay a visit to the dentist that you don't even remember one bit!! And it's even nicer to look in the mirror and see a smile with straight perfect teeth, not chipped, broken and crooked, no gaping holes to catch all the food you're trying to eat! These are only temp crowns, so I'll have to be careful with them, but it looks great and that makes me feel great! 

Finishing up my chocolate malt (also courtesy of John) and headed back to bed for more zzzzs!  Hopefully I'll wake up bright and clear in the morning cuz either way I have to be at work.  If I feel the least bit disoriented, John will drive me.  I guess that probably rules out driving and texting or driving and playing Words with Friends too.  (Kidding folks, just kidding!)   I work Friday and also Saturday AM,  lots on tap for  this weekend, but for today I am just  so very grateful to have this done. Not nearly as bad as my fears imagined it to be!   Isn't that true of mostly everything in life? Sleepy but smiling, a great way to end the night! :-)

  10. Hi Josie -- I've been so bogged down with getting this book put to bed I hadn't realized you'd been put to bed with dental surgery!

    Hope you're feeling better.

    I love your story-telling style.
