Nervous for Thursday
Thursday is going to be a big day for me. I am finally having my wisdom teeth, all 4, removed. I have never been under general anesthesia before so I am experiencing some anxiety over this because I really have no idea what to expect. Everyone tells me I will be "asleep" and when I wake up I will feel as though only 2 minutes have passed; I won't feel like it's been 1.25 hours which is how long the surgeon said it will take him. Too, I'm feeling anxious about the recovery. I have heard many stories of dry socket, a condition I am desperate to avoid, and major swelling and bruising. I am also a bit nervous about being hungry while recovering. I'm not a happy, sweet person when I'm hungry. I'm a cranky, salty bitch. Urban Cowboy and I stocked up on soup and pudding and jell-o when we went grocery shopping yesterday so, truly, I should be ok. I know getting my wisdom teeth out now is a good thing to do and that I'll be happy I did it but knowing that now is not making me any less nervous for Thursday!
