More drugs

29 01 2009

… are pending.  I booked myself in today to have my wisdom teeth removed.  Guess how excited I am?

I’m not.  Especially since the Orgnathic surgeon who’s removing them showed me a photo of a young wisdom tooth, with tiny if not non-existent roots, then an x-ray of my well established deeply set well rooted teeth.  Urgh.

Fortunately I’ll be drugged out of my mind again when that happens.  To think that only three weeks ago today I had my very first anaesthetic and I was terrified, and now that I’ve survived it I’m looking forward to the next one, just for the complete sensory deprivation of the upcoming procedure.

It’s amusing, my first 35 years were free of hospital, other than visiting friends or family, or the occasional X-ray, but now I’m in my 36th year I’m apparently due for the overhaul.

At least I get to have a break in Australia in what I believe is a super hot Summer first.  I fly out on Sunday, and return 2 weeks later, to have my teeth out within 4 days of landing.  Jet lag AND drugs.  Woohoo!

I’d like to say I’ll be glad when it’s over, but once it is, then I’m getting braces.  It’s just like a second childhood, only this time I get to foot the bill.

On that note, it’s time to wind down for the evening.
