Wisdom Teeth

I know that I don't look great...but that is because I had my upper wisdom teeth pulled yesterday! I had to have them pulled because I didn't have enough room in my mouth for them (you could never tell that my mouth is too small by the amount of talking I do!!).
sister Shannon and I drove to Wenatchee (yes, from Moses Lake...1.5 hours away) because there was no oral surgeon on my dental plan here in ML. The drive was longer than the actual visit! One side was 30 seconds...the other side not so quick. It required a lot of pulling, prodding, using the drill, etc, etc!!!! He had to stitch that side up it took so much to get it out! Needless to say, I went home yesterday took a vicodin and went to bed!!!

Here are the offenders!!! Why do they come in so late in life and why are they called wisdom teeth? One of those questions you want to ask God when you see him! I tried smiling for you; however, my left side is swollen (can't tell too much here) so I can't smile too well. I'm hoping that my mouth will feel better tomorrow!
