Cut for squick.

The tooth was split all the way into the root, there was no possibility of saving it. So they pulled it.

Pulled is a little misleading. First they had to break off some pieces to get a better hold of it. Even with the novocaine, it's not a pleasant experience

First there was the electrocautery of a portion of my soft palate. Having to remove anything metal from my person just in case.

I am now at work with a mouthful of bloody gauze, feeling like I'd really rather be elsewhwere. The novocaine is beginning to wear off, and I'm gonna try to suck on some crackers for breakfast. Stitches come out a week from thursday.

I could definitely use some love today.

yeah, this is awful.
I've been an extraction victim but the breaking chunks of tooth off was my Jody. I sat on the end of the dental chair holding his hand. it is no bloody fun.

I'm debating whether it's a good idea or not.

I have a headache-- like you'd expect, non?-- and the novocaine hasn't worn off completely yet, though I'm starting to get movement back in my face.

No booze for three days. Not a biggie, as I'm really not much of a boozer. I do have codiene waiting for me at the pharmacy tonight though.
