Happy Thanksgiving

Today is not the day that Dave and i are celebrating Thanksgiving. My children arrive tomorrow for the big turkey day. Today is actually me trying to wrap up the presentation that I have to give on Monday for my "final". I am way behind schedule on it, considering that I must email it to 3 professors tomorrow as well as another student in the class. Only 2 weeks left....I am ready for a break!

The tooth is gone, although they could not get it all the way numb, I was so fed up that I said, just pull it.....which of course they did not hesitate to do, after they closed the door so that no one could hear me! The area is healing up well, however my jaw is a mess. I think that I goofed up my TMJ only chewing on one side for weeks. Today it is actually a bit better. I can't open my mouth very wide, so I can only take small bites. It takes me a LONG time to eat!

Other than that, all is well. I simply wanted to take a minute to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Mine was like that too. Only mine was because I finally fell asleep and they had to wrench my mouth open for 2 hours.

It took about 3 weeks before I could open my mouth the whole way.

Happy Thanksgiving! I have to work tonight. Blech!

Awww, maybe it will be sloooowwww (hmmm, that could make it drag....)

Anyway, Happy T day and thanks for easing my mind that my jaw will right itself in time! It is actually a bit better today over yesterday, so that is a good sign!

I remember when I was so swollen after my wisdom teeth were removed that it took me 45 min. to eat one of those obnoxious sausage sandwiches at the fair - but I got 'er down!
I'm glad you were with your kids for the holiday - that's what it's all about, eh?
