Although I rarely update on here, I still log onto LJ and read everything. I'm a big fan of the communities and the stuff you guys post :)

Anyway, I had my wisdom teeth removed on April 29th. There were some complications with the recovery and I ended up getting a really bad dry socket. Here I am 12 days post-surgery - still in pain, still with a pack in the wound, and coming down with something totally unrelated. Seriously....I've never used this abbreviation, but I feel it's appropriate....FML! I have not left the house for 12 days aside from two attempts to go to work (which I failed miserably at) and then a few visits to the oral surgeon.

None of this is the oral surgeon's fault. The place I went to is wonderful, and the team is totally professional, prompt, and caring. This is all my body's fault.

I can honestly say this is the worst pain I've ever been in - having an exposed jaw bone is terrible.

So, that's what I've done the last (nearly) two weeks. I haven't done anything fun. Haven't really gotten any projects done. Just bed, couch, bed, couch, bed, couch.

I bought some plants the weekend before my surgery and still haven't been able to plant them. I wanted to build a raised bed, but that's been foiled so far, so my poor plants have suffered.

Yuck. I just want to get back to normal, go to work, and work on my house.
