Yesterday went about as well as I could have hoped. Hugged my boyfriend one last time, then got hooked up to various machines and IVs. The last thing I remember is talking to the oral surgeon and technicians about my daughter and the next thing I knew I was waking up as they were finishing up with the stitches. The oral surgeon was unable to get the lower denture in so made me an appointment shortly after that with my dentists office for an adjustment and placement of the lower. I had time in between to go home for a little while where I changed out the gauze on my lower, swallowed some pills and attempted to eat some custard. I was still completely numb so it was a bit of a challenge but I got it done and then slept for a bit. Then it was off to the dentist to get my lower put in. It was a short visit but I walked out of there able to talk a hell of a lot better than with the wads of gauze in my mouth. I was able to eat some jello when I got home which honestly felt really good, and then sipped on some squash and sweet potato soup followed by some more custard later on. Im currently on a regimen of antibiotics and steroids and so far I’ve had very little to no swelling. I’m rotating between toradol and Tylenol for pain management but I’m really not experiencing much pain at all. I was still pretty numb when I went to bed last night so I took half of a hyrdocodone just to be safe and put my ice packs on. I can’t believe it but I slept through the night no problem. This morning I ate some yogurt and did my first salt water rinse then off to the dentist again for more adjustments. Sounds that I’m struggling with are S’s, T’s, J’s, ch, th, and my dogs name, Groot. Maybe it’s less about those particular letters and sounds and more about their use in certain applications... as far as how they look, I’m pretty happy with them fo the most part, I do feel like I’m much more toothy when I speak than my natural teeth were. The teeth themselves look just right in terms of size and shape, but when I speak or smile, they seem to come down quite a bit further than I am used to seeing.... but maybe as things heal up and shrink down that will change. Maybe it’s just my imagination, or maybe I’m being to critical too soon. My boyfriend says that if it wasn’t for the fact that he was there (and I talk like I have marbles in my mouth) he’d have no idea that anything had happened. Overall I’m feeling pretty good and have no real complaints. My dentist told me to call for adjustments as often as I need and as I long as I call in the morning they should have no problem getting me in same day.
