UPDATES: (Not that anyone would care, but I’ll update anyway 😛 )
1. The Dentist (my dentist, not the first one I saw who said I needed surgery) did not have to operate on my third molar, after all. The impaction was not very bad, in fact the tooth is upright. She just had to remove some of the gums so the tooth can erupt. It was (still is) painful, but surely nothing compared to impacted molar surgery. For that I am thankful!
I wonder why the first dentist advised surgery when the x-ray should have clearly shown her what needed to be done. And the price of surgery, at Php8000 – 10,000, does not come cheap huh! Imagine if I took her word for it… and later learn from my dentist that all that was needed is a Php500-snip on the gums. Arrgh.
Hey, thank you for all the well-wishes. I guess they all came true!
2. Thank you, Em Dy and Rach, for the shiny badges of blog honors. 🙂
No, I’m not really stressed.
It’s just my aching third molar (a.k.a wisdom tooth) that has been trying to erupt for the longest time, thus the gums in that far end of my mouth are swollen. There’s a dull, throbbing pain that seems to come from within. Must be the third molar pushing against the second. A case of impacted molar, though not a bad one, as the dentist assured me: “The surgery(!!!!!) won’t take long, just about an hour.”
The thing is, I can’t have the surgery (!!!!!) yet because: 1) My son is sick (again!); 2) the girls’ 2nd quarter exams are coming up; 3) I feel like firing my son’s yaya (Ang sakit sa ulo, pramis!); 4) I have to oversee some work to be done on our roof.
I can’t possibly be nursing a dental surgery (!!!!!) while all these are going on at home. But the thought of being groggy for days due to the sedative effect of painkillers appeals greatly. Oh to sleep and sleep and sleep and sleep – what joy that would be!
But, I can’t possibly… So that will have to wait. This is probably the first time that I’d actually welcome a surgery (!!!!!), though I’m sure by now you noticed how scared I am.
When times like these come, one thing bears the brunt. Blogging takes the backseat for now. I’m sorry if I’m unable to return blog visits. As soon as the semestral break comes in two weeks, I’ll be back to blogging. Thank you, though, that you still come around despite my being a poor host.
Lastly, I want to thank the wonderful women bloggers (Cookie, Wenchie, Anna, Lynn, Ann, and Mitch) who awarded my blog recently. I am honored to receive these badges from you ladies! As I said a few posts back, it is blog friends like you that make me look forward to blogging. Thank you very much! Merci beaucoup! Xie xie nin! Maraming salamat! I shall pass on the badges when I return, I hope you don’t mind.
