What a day! So glad it's almost bedtime. Hubby has been an absolute star today as this morning I was the nervous wreck from hell.
When we arrived at the dentist there was a lady coming out, very groggy, with her daughter and the dentist helping her to the car. You could see from her eyes that she had no idea where she was and she had two great lumps of cotton wool sticking out of her mouth. I nearly passed out there and then on the driveway!
Once I got in there, after the usual struggle to get an xray plate in my mouth (I have a very restricted bite since breaking my jaw in three places in a car accident), the dentist put the tight elastic round my arm to raise a vein and then injected the sedation stuff. I remember him saying "you'll feel light headed in a minute, just go with it" .... and that was it. The rest of the day is total fuzz. Toad apparently got me home about an hour later and I have done nothing but sleep!
Had a couple of sloppy Weetabix late this afternoon and just had a bowl of soup with tiny cubes of bread submerged in it. It's like being 5 years old again. Had to take a couple of painkillers earlier but don't feel too bad at all at the moment.
Sedation is definitely the way to go! Thanks for all your good wishes and prayers, I am certain they helped. Be back with you tomorrow with some cards.
Oh, meant to say, you can go off some people really quickly. My friend Jacqui with whom I often get a lift home from work gave me a small gift wrapped package last night - it's a "Make Your Own Tooth Fairy Keepsake Box" !!!
