Implant implanted...

So I had to be at the oral surgeon's by 7am, for a 7:30am implant.

They TOLD me I was going to be in the operating room but I didn't know it was really an operating room! All sterile and white, with two walls of windows - it was so bright in there!

And I'm a scrubs convert - not the TV show, the clothes! I had to put on a top and bottom and socks and a hair cover - scrubs are comfortable! I might have to buy me some at Walmart!

For the record, my bp was waaaay up, 146/89, pre-surgery. (My normal is between 120/70 and 120/80.). Post surgery, heading back to normalk 138/89. Now, sitting in bed with an ice pack on my jaw, TLC on TV, and a Dunkin' Donuts Caramel Coolatta on my nightstand - I KNOW it's back to normal!

The doctors gave me some extra novacaine, to make it through the morning. They suggested this procedure would be even easier than the extraction, so if I didn't take any Vicodin for THAT procedure, I'd most likely need none for this one.

I think I'm going to pack my ice pack and go get my hair highlighted (it needs it DESPERATELY!).

Back later!
