I received this marvelous bouquet from, are you ready for this, my dentist. Hand delivered by an employee from Prescott Modern Dentistry, 30 miles away. She was happy to get out of the office and make the drive.
Almost two weeks ago I underwent five hours of surgery including bone grafting for the two upper implants for the removable overdenture and four lower implants for the fixed denture. I’ve been sore and miserable since then. Taking hydrocodone for the pain gave me wings most days but also dropped me into a very black hole one day. I can’t bite or chew yet. Healing could take 6-8 weeks so I’ll be on a liquid and soft diet for that long. I have to keep reminding myself that I will be able to bite and chew again, better than I have for many years. I’m dreaming of steak, pizza, popcorn, apples, pistachios, raw vegies, sub-sandwich, almonds, crunchy french fries, corn on the cob, trail mix, crackers, chips…
Dang that made me hungry. Guess I’ll go heat up some sweet potato chicken baby food. Pudding for dessert!
