If we were having coffee, I’d probably ether be having an iced chai latte or some other chilled drink since my two lower wisdom teeth had been removed on Tuesday. I probably could get a way with drinking a cup of hot coffee, but I really don’t want to risk dry socket. When I had my upper two wisdom teeth removed, it was pretty easy and there was no real soreness afterwords; I was just extremely tired the following day. With my bottom two however, my lower jaw has been sore the majority of the time.
I’d probably be telling you how with the exception of when I take some extra strength Tylenol, it’s sore and uncomfortable moving my mouth. The soreness has reduced each day, but it does make me happy that I had a couple of days off from work seeing how I work in a restaurant.
Granted, compared to some of the ‘horror stories’ I’ve heard about dry socket and what not, I’m happy that I’ve just had a sore jaw.
One of the things that I’ve enjoyed over the last couple days is just getting to relax and rest up. In some ways, it’s easy to overlook taking care of yourself in way that allows you to appreciate what you have. Even though having four days off is a gift in many ways, I am one of those people that typically by day three of longer breaks like this – even from school – I am ready for something to do.
Something that got me excited while recovering is the 13 Reasons Why Netflix trailer. Ever since the release date was announced for the series, it’s been exciting to see the trailers that come out and what not, especially since Netflix already has built the preview image on their site and people can add the show to their list.
