Well yesterday was my big tooth appointment. Got all my teeth removed around 1pm. This time was put all the way under so it didn't end up like my Sioux City trip. So when I got home I took some pain meds and went to bed…slept for 3-4 hours and then got up till about 11pm. Today and last night I dont feel too bad. I am very swollen but not bruised yet. The dentist said that it was a very major surgery for me and that bI had TONS of infection. So am lucky I got it done when I did…so nows the healing process. My temp dentures are a little loose but not too bad and no sore spots yet really…I mean how can one tell when your mouth is super ender anyway? Also my diabetic retinopathy is much better too!!!

well stress may do that to you Malisssa. how has your eating plan been like?

I know stress is really bad but cant seem to help it…not eating at all like I should. When I get super stressed it is either ulcers or acid reflux that really kills my stomache…ahhhh

Congrats on finally feeling better. Just imagine how good you'll feel after you recover from the surgery. Take care and take time to heal.
