Foggy, foggy day

The title has nothing to do with the weather.
It has been raining, or not. Snow is a possibility, which means it must be cold.
I don’t know, and I am not sure how much I care right now.

Yesterday two things happened of note:
1. My aunt passed away. So sorry, but I believe she was at peace.
2. I had all of my wisdom teeth out.

This made for a very interesting juxtaposition, which remains.

Yesterday was a blur of information.
If I wrote it down, there is a chance that it will be “remembered” correctly, and taken care of.
If not, who knows.

The extraction process went well from my perspective.
Laughing gas and Xanax, and then I was home.
They gave me all sorts of stuff to take. amoxicillin (must take), Alleve (suggested to start with), and two different narcotics for either moderate or severe pain. Frankly, the pain has been fairly well-managed with the alleve. I did take a moderate before going to bed. I really just wanted to sleep through the night.

Today I am up am moving around, although I am not attempting more than requires sitting.
I am not sure how much I trust my thought processes, but there are a few things that need to get completed, so I am muddling through them 1 by 1.

Carl has been a great support.
He picked me up, got the medicine, and then left.
Of course, the option was to stay around me with two 5 year olds.
Leaving was the better option.

I set myself up on the couch, put the movie “Up” in the DVD, and promptly slept through most of the movie.
I survived on pudding and applesauce. Today Carl has been home and I got a yogurt and fruit shake, and now scrambled eggs. He is a good caretaker.

I feel a nap coming on, so …..

    Take good care, Jay. My husband’s wisdom tooth removal coincided with the weekend of the Anita Hill testimony. More difficult to sleep through than “Up”!!

    Wow, you still had your wisdom teeth? Mine came out in college. So sorry about your aunt, but it sounds like it was her time. She wanted it to be anyway. Keep eating and taking the pain meds.
