Okay, before you start trying to guess what I mean by numbness, I’m going to tell you.
Yesterday I went to the dentist and had a wisdom tooth removed. That’s where the numbness comes from. Wow! six needles it took! Just as well my dentist had a tv on the ceiling with coral islands showing. It looked like it was a drone video but it was greatly calming. Because I thought that darned tooth would never come out! It was stubborn!
But, out it came and I am up to eating soft foods and liquids. Yesterday was cold foods and drinks and today was lukewarm. Of course, being the rule-breaker I am, I had scrambled eggs for tea last night. I swear, I let them cool down a little!
Main thing is, apart from the jaw itself being tender for having had to sit in a skewiff position (I swear, the online dictionary says that’s a word and my mum used to use it all the time!) and losing a tooth, I am just about back to normal. I’m not going to have a lot of crunchy things for the next few days but I should be back to full on vegies and toast after that.
I will admit, there was one point that I almost said ‘no, don’t do it’, but I endured it all the way to the end. I will say, though, don’t go on Facebook straight after you get home – the mistakes you make are eye-opening! Now, though? Now I’m going back to Consequences 3.
