i feel for you and send you a lot of strength and good luck your way!
be brave! suggest to yourself that you are calm and collected and that nothing can hurt you.
do you get surgery with narcoses or just local anesthetic?
Hi Lucia, just some gas that was supposed to "calm me" and I didn't really feel anything from it...really...but, I never took the mask off so I
suppose it could have been helping some. They offered to give me Valiums beforehand but, I don't prefer taking medicine unless I am desperate. I am
desperate this morning and late evening yesterday and have taken the Oxycodone (with the stern warning that this may become habit forming-NOT for me
it won't!). I did learn that when you are given a local anesthetic for any work on the bottom jaw, usually one or two shots will numb the entire area
but, for work on the top-each area around each tooth must be numbed, front and back...so all in all I stopped counting shots LOL.
All in all, healing well and have a mouth full of stitches and gauze...
Thanks everyone for the positive vibes and well wishes!
Happy Turkey Day to those of you that celebrate and for our friends farther away have a beautiful day doing whatever you are doing. I was talked into
doing a small dinner for my girls and my youngest daughter's girlfriend (they are traditionalists). So wine is definitely in my future and hopefully
can choke down some smashed taters!
Geez! I CAN ramble some days!
P.S. Special thoughts going out to those lonely and in need and extra special to Timely and his loved ones...stay safe and hunkered down, please
report in when/as you are able.
