No video today, I’m afraid. I’m just not feeling it. Too bad though, because my hair is all fluffy and squeaky clean.
Update on my new teeth…(I know you guys have been hanging on the edge of your seats the last week!)
On top, I’ve had no problems ever since I got a few sore spots adjusted on Monday. My top dentures go in and out, just as easy as taking candy from a baby.
The suction sound when I take them out at night is fucking nifty. Plus, they stay in place without any adhesives. I’ve been smiling brightly at everyone that I’ve come into contact with all week.
Alas, the bottom dentures are almost impossible for me to keep in for any amount of time. I can’t use anything yet to help them stay in place, plus I have two bone fragments/spurs popping out of my gums. They hurt like hell, not to mention that they’re extremely disturbing to look at. I guess it happens often enough from what I’ve read on the subject, especially when lower teeth are extracted and if there was a bit of a struggle prying them loose. (My poor jawbone.) I’m assuming that the dentist will have to dig around in there and remove them somehow, I just hope that they numb me first.
My appointment is next Thursday and they’ll also be removing any remaining sutures and doing a soft reline on my temporary dentures, which I think will make everything more comfy for my gums.
I can tolerate soft foods. Before I eat anything, I rate it first with my Mush-A-Bility scale.
Like, I could eat my feta and spinach omelette today, but I had to give away my toast because it just wasn’t happening.
And I love toast, too, damn it.
By the way, pudding tastes amazing without your teeth in. My mom told me that years ago and by God, she’s right.
Have a nice weekend and if you by chance eat a steak, think of me.
