Painful Week

So last Friday (the 8th) I had oral surgery, but not before KidWonder got sick on Tuesday with a bad cold. So over the weekend DadWonder had two sickies to take care of.KW had a bad cold that caused his asthma to act up and we had to kick in to full gear with the meds.  We were finally applauded by a physician on the stellar job we were doing taking care of our child. <sarcastic sigh of relief>

So with KW being medicated about 5 times a day we thought, “Why not send me in for 9 shots of local anesthetic, three tooth extractions, and surgical removal of an empacted wisdom tooth followed by a haze of pain accompanied with percoset and amoxicillin?” Why indeed. It’s all because, and  I can’t believe I’m admitting this, I’m getting braces. Am I crazy for getting braces 8 months before the wedding? YES! Am I going to do it anyway? YES! It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time a my orthodontist (Peter Maro, formerly of the New York Rangers)  promises that my smile will vastly improve by April. So on Tuesday I am off to have spacers put in even thought the pain of the surgery hasn’t completely subsided (Yay!). wish me luck.

  1. It’s not crazy to get braces before your wedding. You want to look your best and a smile is a big part of that, especially on your wedding day 🙂

    Besides, I know the pain – I had all of my wisdom teeth extracted in the spring and now I have braces too, and all so I can have the perfect smile on my wedding day too 🙂
