Down to a dull throb....


I think I must have clenched my jaw while sleeping, I woke up this morning with a lot of jaw pain.  

Other than that though – my pain is down to a dull throb; Advil is really all I need. Also, the swelling is mostly gone, but the two extraction sites are very tender to the touch.

For breakfast, I had another bagel. Lunch was mashed potatoes with gravy and some sliced steak. I don’t recall what we had for dinner.

I happened to have my pain meds bottle on the desk at work today and I realized that the label said Hydrocodone & Acetaminophen.  Now I know why I was feeling dizzy and nauseated – the codone! I’ve put the pills away  in a safe place for if I have “OMG pain” but I can’t take these any more.
