Thursday night and Friday morning were the worst. I was popping pills every two hours to keep the pain under control and let me get the sleep I needed.

[livejournal.com profile] kubulai was right in his comment to my previous entry: I didn't go into work Friday. But he's also right that I would go Orly Taitz batshit insane if I didn't do something other than lay on my ass. So, I VPN'd in and worked from my comfy position on the couch. It actually helped to keep my mind off the pain. Also watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.

By Saturday it had started to lessen. I could eat solid foods again as long as I chewed the majority on the other side of my mouth (which I was already doing to avoid the pain before). I also went from pills every two hours to pills every four hours. I actually felt like doing some things so I worked on some code for Furry Weekend Atlanta. Saturday evening Sarah and I went out to dinner at Red Robin (a place I hadn't been in months, mostly due to their lack of diet-friendly items). I figured, since I'd been on a liquid diet all day prior, I'd earned a good meal.

Sunday, I was able to take myself off the pain pills and make due with just tylenol.

Monday, I woke up to find a giant crack in the middle of my windshield. Fucking joy. That's $200 down the drain. Still not sure how it happened, either.

So I'm sitting here, woozy from the pain meds they gave me. But I made it through to the other side!

I went into the oral surgeons office this morning. The got me checked in pretty quickly and into the chair, sedated, and numbed up. Then, it was two ours of drilling, poking, and the occasional burst of pain. I was awake the whole time, by the way. They start with the root canal - and you know it's gonna suck when they start with the fucking root canal. After that, they do the crown, and finally the shit where they pull my gums back and trim the bone down.

So yeah. I have stitches in my mouth and soreness and some pain. But ... it's not as bad as I'd feared. Then again, I'm also high out of my damn mind right now because of all the Lortab I've taken. :P
