That is right, I still have wisdom in my youth. Apparently now that I have just hit puberty(ha ha) I got my wisdom teeth removed, well one of them any way! So the story goes like this....... last week I felt this little annoying discomfort behind my last tooth on the left upper side when I flossed or brushed my teeth. Didn't think much of it until later when it was a little more bothersome. I told Bryan, "I think I have a tooth growing in the back of my mouth". To which he LAUGHED! I asked him to look and see. Oh was that a sight, if anyone saw I bet they would have died laughing. In the end he could not see a thing. I was not worried about it, I mean it didn't hurt when I ate and only on occasion when I was brushing. So on with my life I went until last Friday it started to hurt more if I ate on that side. By Sunday it was bothering me regardless of whether I was eating. It was even hurting to open my mouth. Monday morning I called the dentist, who just so happens to be one of our great friends and our neighbor, they were able to get me in today-Tuesday! Perfect! I was starving all day Monday because it was so hard for me to open my mouth or to chew. You all know me I love to eat so the sooner the better. Now I am not going to lie, I was nervous, really nervous! Not exactly sure why, but I was. I got to my appointment, with lortab in tow just in case, got the x-rays done and we were ready to go, but not before I said a little prayer. I am not kidding when I say my hands were shaking. Again why I was so nervous is beyond me. Jeremy, I mean Dr. Ludlow numbed me and then said, "OK this part is going to make you want to punch me. I have to numb the inside as well". OK I thought and I prepared to restrain myself......NOTHING!!! I felt nothing. If that was supposed to be the worst part then WOW. So I sat there for about 5 minutes while I got fully numb. Then Jeremy came back in and the tooth was out in like 5 minutes. SERIOUSLY! I was freaking out over nothing. I felt no pain what so ever. That was literally one of the easiest things ever. I was home in 45 minutes. Dr. Ludlow you are the best! So even though one of my wisdom teeth is out, I am still wise. I mean look at the good friends I choose to have! Look at my wise choice in my Awesome Dentist!
