I know you're all just dying to know an update on how my mouth is doing, so I'm happily obliging. (If you're not, just play along!)
I am happy to report that I am on my second day of NO pain medication! That's a fair cry from shooting up Tylenol 3 every six hours. The hole is closing up, but is still pretty sore when you touch it. The bone appears to be coming out more than being covered up by the gums, but she told me it would take a few weeks for that to happen. I guess I'll just be patient.
Now comes the real hard part. The part where I schedule an appointment to have the tooth on the right side fixed before it gets as bad as the left one did. You know, like willingly go to the dentist. Who does that shit? Not me. But, I guess I better.
