I decided to go lay down at 1:00 pm and I just woke up. Wow…8 hours.
Guess I’ll stay up pretty late tonight. Hard to believe that something like a tooth pull actually knocked me on my butt all day. I felt great overall and only had mild pain. I took 600 mg of ibuprofen then decided to nap.
Well, I don’t know if sleeping for 8 hours qualifies as a nap.
I do feel a little weak. Besides breakfast, I’ve only had 1 cup of tomato soup and 16 oz of water. Me thinks I need to eat and drink before a massive headache hits.
Boy do I look pitiful. Check is swelling fast. Haven’t seen anything so puffy since Vito Corleone.
It’s gone. My last upper wisdom tooth is no more. My face is starting to get all puffy. Time to apply my little ice pack…frozen peas! The whole thing took less than 90 seconds. I spent more time picking up my soft food at the grocery store than at the dentist this morning.
Pasta. My dental technician really stressed eating pasta…lots of pasta for the next few days. Great. What fattie doesn’t want medical approval to eat their favorite trigger food. My goal is to avoid pasta for as long as possible with my other food options.
Dentist approved foods include jello, pudding, and baby bear style (think about it) soup. Oh, and my personal favorite, salt water starting on Friday. Yum.
Foods that made the naughty list – bacon, ground beef, steak, anything crunchy (good-bye salad!) and ice cream. All, except the ice cream, are staples on my low carb diet.
I ended up buying cream of tomato, butternut squash and chicken noodle soups, chocolate pudding (sugar-free), and whole milk. My goal is to stick with the soups for the next 48 hours. If I can get to Saturday, I can then eat some chicken and more solid veggies.
One of my 3 remaining wisdom teeth gets the boot today. It’s not impacted. Nope, just a really nasty cavity. So it’s time to bid the tooth à dieu.
I’m off to the grocery store to pick up some soft food. Yes, I’m picking up some low carb protein shakes. But I’m also grabbing a few carb heavy items like chicken noodle soup, bananas and ice cream (of course).
