No Wisdom Teeth for Christmas

My boyfriend got his wisdom teeth out today. All four of them. They were coming out forward instead of upward so the procedure was a bit more difficult.  And they had fully grown in 3 years ago.

Before me he hadn’t even heard of wisdom teeth, I’m glad I was able to convince him to get them out, his teeth sadly on the bottom have already been crowded together and it’s too late to fix without braces.  Being a student, no one has the time or money for that.

An hour later the extraction was complete, and I met him in recovery.

Recovery was 2 and a half hours, 2 hours longer then everyone else.

He had excess bleeding and had to go back in and get more stitches on his left side, which was already feeling pain and swelling.

Because he was 2 hours over in recovery, he’s 2 hours behind and I don’t think he will be eating solids by tomorrow.

Care is time consuming. Advil every 3 hours, T3 every 4, anti-nausea 3x a day. Soft foods that aren’t hot. Sitting up straight AND today is laundry day. Poor thing.

I’m sure almost everyone can empathize.

The nurse say’s his worst day will be Christmas.  I’m glad I could get today and tomorrow off work to help him through this!

Have a happy holiday everyone! and remember someone always has it worse 😛 🙂

Grown Men Playing Video Games and THANK YOU!

I grew up in a time where game systems only began being popular.

Game boy, that duck shooting game, then Mario Cart.

I never owned a single game system myself. I only ever played he original Roller Coaster Tycoon and Sims on PC. Those were the days.

I enjoyed my computer time although I spent most of my childhood playing outdoors and creating worlds with my toys using my imagination.

But I know a lot of people who grew up with game systems and this isn’t my issue.

My issue is people 20+ with no job… that waste their day’s playing games?

I see it as an impairment of judgement.

I feel they have had a lack of mental growth due to these games.

Leave the games for the kids, or for when you are reliving your childhood and you have your own.

What do you think?

Updated my about by the way (just figuring out how this thing works still)

Thanks for all the support so far though!
