Wisdom Taken Away

Sorry that I did not post anything about the Immaculate Conception feast that we celebrated yesterday. It is a very important feast, and it's not that I was ignoring it. I wasn't. Friday afternoon, I had all four wisdom teeth yanked out. Yeeouch!! They put me to sleep for the process, so I did not have to hear them crack my teeth, or whatever it is they do. Unfortunately, I was on one particular pain-killer that made me extremely out-of-it, if you know what I mean, so we did not make it to a mass to celebrate this feast. By the time I was actually awake enough (about 10 am) we could not find anymore masses still celebrating. So we went to an evening mass last night as some sort of effort, but no, we did not receive communion, because, technically, we missed a holy day of obligation. *sigh*

Anyway, I'm feeling better today, and have not taken any pain killers, yet, so maybe the worst is over. I still can't eat much though, and the chocolate ice cream (isn't my husband a doll?) is already gone. I'm making stew for dinner tonight, and I may be able to eat a soft carrot or potato, but I doubt I will eat any meat. Oh well, easy way to lose those five pounds of baby weight that is still hanging on, right? ;-)

I hope that you were able to find posts out there on what some other women were doing for the feast day yesterday, but if not, check out my sidebar. There are quite a few holy women over there that did some good stuff for this day. Have a good Sunday!

I still remember when I had my 4 wisdom teeth pulled also. It happens so fast when you're put to sleep doesn't it? But I remember the pain upon waking up! OUCH!
Hope you're feeling better soon!

Thank you, I am feeling much better now, although I still can't eat too much. That has more to do with my jaw being stiff than pain though. Things should be better soon though.
