I had all four wisdom teeth removed on Thursday morning with sedation. This included one surgical extraction (fairly straight-forward), one partial bony extraction (the roots were lodged in my bone and had to be dug out), and two complex full-full bony impactions (my lower teeth were sideways and completely encased in my mandibular bone, so the bone had to be scraped off, the tooth quartered and removed in pieces).
It is therefore day five of my recovery and the swelling has started to go down and bruising is setting in. I look like I might be domestically abused, and I go back to work tomorrow. Also, I work in a dental office. So that will be fun. My patients will either believe I'm abused or that my doctor sucks, when in truth I just had super difficult surgery and bruise super easily. It's a lovely gentic gift that came with my uber fair skin. *sigh*
In other news, I've been watching an absurd amount of HGTV lately, and now my head is full of remodelling/updating dreams for my 1980s house. Which we might be able to pay for if we take out a second loan in like...ten-fifteen years. X-D I should not be allowed to watch remodelling shows and DIY things. It will cause me nothing but pain haha!!
My gorgeous Wee Tiny is now one year old! She has now learned that if she has a walker/toy to hang on to she can propel herself in a straight line using a bipedal stance. Turning is still beyond her, as is letting go. So she mostly prefers to cruise around our furniature instead.
With her advanced age also comes the peeping out of another tooth. It's her right maxilliary canine, so if her left comes in I'll have a baby vampire. My husband finds this slightly disturbing, but I'm kind of hoping it happens. Because, you know. Baby Vampire. X-D Especially amusing when combined with her gorgeous jewel-blue eyes and hair that seems to be caught in the middle of "little girl" hair and "duck down."
My baby is perfect, no one can tell me otherwise. Even if she does enjoy whacking me in the tender jaw whilst I'm holding her.
Also, finally got results of the sshg fic awards posted, with a few minor bumps. Not sure I'll be continuing that next year. We'll see.
