Post-Op Report

Yesterday I got all four of my wisdom teeth out! Everyone told me all these horror stories about how much it would hurt, how I'd "be so out of it for a few days," etc. Well thankfully, none of that happened! It took me about 30 minutes to become fully coherent again from the anesthesia and by the time I got home, I popped in one of my favorite movies--Scoop (Isn't Hugh Jackman just the yummiest?!)--watched Persepolis with my mom, then topped off the day by playing some Super Mario Galaxy on my Wii (I have 87 stars! 34 more to go!). I felt hardly any pain--if any--and actually had quite a splendid day.

Here it is day two and I'm just the same as yesterday...Great! I did some P90X and then took down ALL of the Christmas decorations in the house (including 2 fake trees and all the other random Christmasy littering our bookcase and mantles). Here's a lovely picture of what I look like today after de-Christmasing--yes, the no makeup, messy hair look is beautiful and I know the right cheek is a bit swollen, but that's about as bad as it's been!

Hmm...I must have pretty high self-esteem to post pictures of me like this on the internet..haha oh well!
