thank you all

Thank you all for your encouragement and kind thoughts. My tooth pulling went well. I took one tylenol w/codeine at bedtime and that is all. They didnt tell me to get some regular tylenol so I have none, don't use it. I guess they assume most people have that sort of stuff. So hopefully I wont feel a need for more pain relief.

Feeling nausea and dizziness today either from anaesthesia or the codeine, but otherwise seem okay. Am enjoying the jello.

The nurse was asking some questions before I went under. "Are you ss," she said. I had no idea what ss was. Social security. A swat team? "What is ss," I asked. "Oh" she said, "I just wanted the spelling of your brother's name. Russ?" LOL

As you can tell, we all had you in our thoughts and prayers yesterday.
So thankful it all went well - now the worst is behind you!

Enjoy that jello! (Yummy!) (Giggle....) Nap with the Fur-Kids, watch those movies, heal....

You will soon be ready for the continued adventures of Pippi - oops - I mean, Suki!

Love,

♥ Robin ♥

I missed that post too, but I'm glad it went ok. I've been there, without the anesthesia (it was a "discount dentist" in Providence, many years ago). Not pleasant.

Welcome back...awake...did you ice your cheek? Did someone stay with you after for a while? Did you pamper yourself? You should be back to normal later today.
Did they remove the other thing was inside your mouth?

Lynn with lots of questions!!!!
Glad it's over with and you can eat your jello and do whatever you want to do today! Enjoy!

I'm still laughing about ss!! Too funny!

I'm glad it's all behind you Suki. So glad you opted for 'lights out.'
Much better than novacaine!

I think it's neat that you're enjoying the jello. You weren't sure you would.
I think a bit of whipped cream on it is in order :P

rest up. We're thinking of you!

Heh, heh...that was funny about the ss!

I'm so glad the tooth pulling went well. I hope you continue to recuperate and that the nauseousness will leave soon!

I have to have all four of my wisdom teeth pulled, according to my dentist. I have been putting it off and putting it off...you have given me some inspiration to just do it!

If you get into pain trouble maybe you could cut the pill in half? Glad you are on the mend and enjoying your jello. I'm keen on strawberry!

Lynn, no swelling, so no ice. I only had one procedure. Decided one removal at a time was enough. Only myself here to pamper me, but i have been just laying around. sipping lemonade, eating a scrambled egg.

kj said...

i'm glad that's behind you. yay!

That is hysterical: "Russ".
:-D
But the tooth extraction isn't.
Glad it's done, and you're fairing well.
Oh yes, I am highly allergic to pain,,,so I want any and all anesthetics. Bring 'em on!

Mary said...

glad you're doing well ;-)

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Lisa at Greenbow said...

I am glad it is over and you are feeling alright Suki.

Mim said...

ss...that's hysterical.

Glad you are doing well - and enjoy the jiggley jello

patti said...

So good that you are well and through to the other side Suki.

Louise Hay says that teeth problems represent decision making. Now that it's out, decisions should be easy, if she's right!

Kim said...

Oh Suki,

I am so glad all went well for you! Whew, now that is one other thing which is behind you. Tee Hee, it is funny the things which happen when those drugs are in us... "ss"! LOL

Rest and let everything heal nicely!

kikipotamus said...

I hope you heal up well and quickly.

Katiejane said...

I'm so glad you aren't feeling too bad. I had hoped you wouldn't have bad side effects. I, too, fear the dentist, but nowadays they can do amazing things relatively pain free. Here's hoping for a fast recovery.

soulbrush said...

San said...

"What is ss?" The mind reels, just before it goes under. :)
