Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Hi there! Happy Wednesday to you! ❀ Yesterday morning, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed, and it went so well! I wanted to share a little update post to thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and for sharing your experiences, as well as to let you know how I’m doing today! πŸ™‚

This was the first major surgery I’ve ever had. The other minor ones were to remove a few stubborn baby teeth back in 2013, as well as something I had done for one of my toenails the following year. It was strange to have been put under yesterday, and even stranger to be recovering from surgery today!

However, since I’ve been taking it very easy, keeping up with pain medication, and following post-surgery instructions, I’m doing very well. There weren’t any complications to the surgery, and we ended up leaving the office just over an hour after we’d arrived!

I mentioned a few days ago that having an IV done for the first time was what was giving me the most anxiety, but it went very well. After that, I really wasn’t scared anymore. ❀ The knowledge that the Lord was (and is!) with me the whole time is what truly calmed my heart.

I took the featured image just a moment ago, right before starting the draft for this post. That’s the best smile I can manage comfortably right now, haha! But believe me, I am extremely happy πŸ™‚

My favorite picture from yesterday was the selfie I took with Isabella shortly before we left to go to the oral surgeon office. She was smiling at our mom and oh my gosh, her happiness absolutely melts my heart.

My diet has been consising of water, fruit juice, yogurt, and apple sauce, lol. I’ll be having a bowl of chicken soup for lunch very shortly, because I really enjoyed it last night!

I hope you’re having a beautiful day! Thank you so much for reading!
