I’m sure if you have been reading for the past few weeks you are aware I had my last two wisdom teeth removed Friday. The procedure went well and my first recovery day was a piece of cake. It wasn’t until Saturday and Sunday that I encountered a lot more swelling and pain. I understand the importance of pain killers! I hope to be fully recovered by the end of the week.
The surgery was over by noon on Friday and I was home by 12:30. The nurse kept urging my mom to pick up milkshakes for me, so I succumbed and let my mom drive through Wendy’s to stock up on a few frostys. I was super adamant to keep healthy habits in check this weekend and prevented a full diet of ice cream, frozen yogurt and mashed potatoes. Even so, I ate a few bites of a chocolate frosty to have something in my stomach before my first painkiller and then dozed off until about 2 p.m.
The rest of the day, I dozed, watched TV and read blogs. Around 6, Ryan came over to cheer me up with a bright bouquet of flowers. How thoughtful! I ate plain pasta shells with butter for dinner while the rest of the family dined on pizza. Then Ryan and I watched Paranormal Activity 3. (He got me into watching the series. Now I only have the fourth one left to watch.)
It was hard to sleep on Friday night. I fell asleep at 4 and woke up at 8:30. I took my medicine and had some yogurt to wash it down. It wasn’t until lunchtime when I had my first meal of eggs with spinach and kale.
I then persuaded my mom to take a walk with me and get some fresh air. We walked about a mile and a half. It was such a beautiful day outside!
Saturday, I watched a movie called ‘The Switch’ with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. It satisfied my movie crave, but that was about it. I also crafted for some upcoming events. I was able to sleep through the night Saturday until I awoke at 6 a.m. Sunday throbbing in pain. It took some time in the morning for the pain to subside. Once it did, I felt a little more cheery.
I also experimented with a handful of smoothie recipes this weekend. It was important to me that I kept filling my body with vitamins while I’m recovering from the procedure. Even though it’s nice to indulge in pasta and frostys, you can’t have too much of a good thing.
Have you seen the show Girls? What do you think of it?
I really can’t decide how to describe my feelings for the show. I watch it because I’m interested and intrigued. I also love Brian Williams’ daughter and feel like I understand the situations each character goes through.
