Welp, finally able to sit down on the computer without passing out. xD Thought I'd go ahead and update everybody, as well as try and do a little bit of drawing/work today.
The surgery itself went over fine. I had all of my wisdom teeth removed and they seem to be healing alright. I have been keeping up with my meds and ice-packs, and surprisingly there is no bruising. There is still quite a bit of swelling though. x-x Can't open my mouth to big. x-x On a lovely diet of all things mooshy and soft. (Is eating apple sauce right now actually.) Wendy's frosty's are my common desire. xD
What didn't go so well was the IV thingy that puts me to sleep. I forget what its called? Anesthesia? Anyway, yeah I woke up very roughly. When they weighed me, apparently they say I was 106 (which is weird because like...two days ago or so I weighed 112-113 at publix) but I guess that was a good thing. They gave me the amount of sleep stuff they'd give a 60 pound child...and I was knocked out the entire time. The doc rushed out before we left to let my mom know that, for future reference, I am apparently hyper-sensitive to the stuff. x-x Went in for surgery at 9:30, didn't wake up till 12:30. I made the doctor and nurses pretty nervous. ^^'' I also got really sick afterwards, and didn't feel better until I 'got it all out of my system.' I felt like a little baby with the Nurse constantly cleaning me up and dabbing my face.
She was a life saver though, constantly keeping cool towels on me. They said my skin was ice-cold, but I swear I felt like I was on fire, so she kept cooling me down with a towel and a fan. Was really weird. But she kept rubbing my back and shoulders to help me get it all out of my system, and when I could finally see clearly I could use hand motions to speak and make weird noises that weirded even me out. I was fully aware, I guess, when I opened my eyes. It was blurry as hell, but I could make out,"Is she awake yet....? How is she doing...? Is she alright...?"
It comforted me that they were concerned. My poor mother wasn't allowed back though, she only got to see me when they wheeled me out in a wheelchair. xD All I can say is...I'm going to live life super safe so I don't have to be put under again. That was a nightmare.
I'm on like...four different meds, and was also given a suppository for my nausea the first day. (If you don't know what that is....look it up. I can definatly say I have pretty much no barriers or didn't have any when I had to take that with aid from my mother. I just didn't care. I wanted the nausea GONE.) I have slept on and off for two days, the longest I can sleep is four hours? But I am doing much better than I was.
I'm trying to ween myself from the pain meds. Not only do they knock me out, but I think those blasted things make me super itchy. ;; Usually its when I take them that I start scratching like a nut! D: (EW TARTII DONT TELL US THAT GROSS SORRY) Soooo, ice is my best friend until the pain is like "FIX ME UP."
I'm on steroids for the swelling, pain pills that knock me the eff out, a rinse to help my gums, and an anti-biotic. Their powers combined let me feel like a comfortable panther. =u= I can rest, and usually just sleep a lot haha. I have been holding my sketchbook close, it felt way too weird not to draw. I only drew when I felt sober enough though...even then I'm still picky about what I did. xD I also tweeted a lot on my phone, as well as checked the net on it because...okay yes I'm an addict. x-x All your comments and well-wishes kept me company, so thanks you guys.
I'm going to try and work/draw today. I'm still behind on my monthly goal, and have some work I still need to do, so here's hoping I can get some work done. Just thought I'd update everybody on how I was doing. Knowing so many of you care and are concerned for me really keeps my spirits up. So thanks for putting up with whiny lil ol me. xD
Don't know how long I can stay up and work, have to stop once in awhile so I can hold or try and tie the ice to my face, but aaah wish me luck! ;; This cat has got work to do. x-x
