Tomorrow is the Day

It's definitely going to happen. I'm getting all of my wisdom teeth out. I talked to the nurse on the phone tonight and went over my health history, breastfeeding concerns, how I'll feel and other things. I'm very nervous. It's crazy...if you cancel... you have to give at least 48 hours notice or they charge you $300! But they can have me come in, get all set up and tell me they messed everything up and can't do the procedure because they weren't prepared? Where is my $300? Hahaha! What if someone came down with the stomach flu in the middle of the night? They have to pay for not coming in? Crazy. I see where they are coming from, but that's a lot of money...on top of how much it already costs. okay, done with my little rant. :P
So I'm nervous. The nurse said I'll be under heavy sedation, but might hear them talking. I'm just worried that I might feel the pain and not be able to tell them, or that I'll have to pee really bad(as I've mentioned before). I have a whole lot of concerns..I guess I'm just a worry wart. I'm sure everything will be fine. I'll be glad to finally have this taken care of. So no food or beverages after midnight. It will all be okay. *sigh*

$300!? Crazy...

Good luck w/everything Melissa!! I'll be thinking about you, hoping you're not in too much pain and that everything goes smoothly & you don't wet yourself ;)

You might find this interesting-I was just reading in a raw foods book about how humans jaws have evolved to not need wisdom teeth because humans don't eat as many greens as they used to. It even said that we no longer have the capability of chewing them properly to get all the *good stuff* out of them, because our jaws are so narrow. kinda sad...

Thanks.

Well,I didn't pee myself! lol.
I am in a good amount of pain though. The nurse said I might forget things throught the day.
Like little blackouts...weird. And I have! Wonder if I'll remember typing this? j/k.

I've read that before too Leah.
Thats why a lot of vegan's and raw foodists juice their veggies, esp leafy greens. One of the reasons I want the Vita Mix. We already have a pretty nifty juicer. :)
