Thanks for all the well wishes for my oral surgery, Knotties! The title of my old thread was getting depressing so I'm posting my update here.
The actual procedure was horrible. Potentially the worst physical sensation I've ever had even though I wasn't feeling much actual pain. The whole thing took over three hours and by the end I was really running out of emotional steam. Fortunately my sister works in the office so I could hear her talking to her patients in the next room which really helped, and she came to check on me a couple of times. Fi took the day off of work so he was there to bring me to the pharmacy and home afterwards.
My temporary crowns look pretty good. I have a bunch of stitches in my gums which hurt like fuck, and if I smile really big you can see the stitches, so I don't look awesome right now. My face is so swollen, it's kind of horrifying and hilarious. Like Lisa Rinna or Angelina Jolie but only on the top lip, eek. I'm debating whether I'll be fit for public viewing tomorrow or if I should work from home.
Last night I had some kind of horrible reaction to my medication and almost went to the ER. I took my Tylenol+Codeine and my antibiotic around 11 and went to bed. I woke up at 3 with the worst, most intense stomach pain I've ever had. It was horrible and just wouldn't stop. Finally I woke up Fi who woke up my sister and they both thought it might be the codeine. My sister was ready to take me to the ER and I was putting my coat on when it started to slightly taper off. Very weird. It happened once more that night but I was able to ride it out since I knew it stopped the first time, which it did. Very bizarre and scary. I've decided not to take any more codeine. So far today my stomach feels a little queasy but nothing like last night.
My wallet is hurting, but that's a different story. Fi and I went over our finances and what we'd lose by rescheduling or moving the wedding and decided we are going to try to move forward with our current plans, just streamline things as much as possible. I am trying to have some faith that it will all work out.
