Back from the dentist

I'm mostly okay.

Lorcet helps.

I don't much like nitrous. It makes me cry (not sobbing, but leaking tears and feeling that tightness in the back of my throat). However, I never felt out of control.

I am a wuss. He got about 2/3 of the way around the top of my mouth and my sinuses got congested and I started having trouble breathing and I guess I panicked and my blood pressure spiked and I started feeling dizzy and not at all well.

I have way too many stitches in my mouth. And gauze packing that I get to change every hour or so.

And the drugstore apparently didn't get the message when the office called in the scrips (the Lorcet and a prescription mouthwash to use starting tomorrow), so I didn't have any pain medication until nearly 4 p.m., when the surgery ended at 1:15 or so. This is not the dentist's office's fault.

And I get to do this three more times.
