I'm "on the wagon"

4/9/09
Thursday

Had surgery yesterday, for 4 1/2 hrs I was sleeping away as drills were churning and pumps were sucking. This was a pretty long time coming as I had an industrial accident last year and lost many of my teeth.

The drilling was to set implants into the jawbone and within a few months, there will be new teeth mounted on them. Unfortunately there were a couple problems and it seems though I thought this would be the last surgery (other than mounting the teeth), but it looks like there may be a need for more.

Anyway, I am not going to run much, maybe a couple miles Saturday and Sunday (easter) I will be out of town......so I guess I am "on the wagon" for this week...I will call it a recovery week.

Feel better! And don't worry about not running for a few days. Your body will probably be happy for the rest!

Good luck with that recovery. Applesauce and ice cream?

Take it easy and let your body heal. Enjoy a little rest for a change!

Hopefully a quick recovery Kevin! The oral surgeon has been bugging me about getting all four of my wisdom teeth extracted... boo! Not a big fan of the dentist, period. I hope the drills and the suction were all metaphorical sounds and you were happily out for the procedure - awake during dental procedures is my personal hell!

Yeouch! Take care and DON'T be tempted to run! Find a really good book and enjoy the break
