Wisdom Lost

I feel like I lost some precious wisdom today…. Didn’t have lots to begin with, and now this…

My 2 remaining wisdom teeth got pulled out this morning.  It was an emergency situation.  I’ve been suffering from a toothache for a few months now, but it got to the point where I’ve been popping Advils every 5 hours.  If you know me, I don’t take medications unless I’m about to you-know-what.  They’d scheduled me in for next Wednesday, but after yet another sleepless night, I called in this morning and told the dentist that those teeth needed to come out NOW!  

It’s true that the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  When I saw the dentist a few days ago, complaining about the pain, I guess I didn’t stress the point enough.  Even this morning when I spoke to him on the phone, my husband was whispering in my ear…”at least sound like you’re in pain….don’t sound so stoic.” haha.

So I’m wisdom toothless, praying that there won’t be any complications from the extractions, and on an involuntary fast.  There was no soft food or soups in the house, and nobody offered to run out to buy anything, no, I’m not complaining.    Maybe I’ll even lose a couple of pounds. 


  1. poor you! get well soon! we’ll pray for you
