In too much pain to be creative

June is a great month for events, don't you agree? Weddings. Graduations. Dental surgery.

Tomorrow I'm having all four of my wisdom teeth pulled. I can hardly wait. Hopefully this will mean a few days of extra knitting time, but mostly I'll be happy if I can just get a solid night's sleep.

(It's really amazing how quickly sleep deprivation can get to you--just one sleepless, painful night and I'm ready to confess to all manner of sins just to get some shut eye. I would not hold up well under torture.)

I'm totally freaking out about being sedated, so think some positive, wake-up-again thoughts for me!

(Blogiversary prize winners, bear with me; I've been slow about getting your prizes out because I couldn't find any packing materials--I like to reuse them--and now I'm going to be laid up a few days. I promise they'll be out by the end of the week!)

Gah! Good luck with your teeth! When I had mine out (in college) I was super excited to have an excuse not to go to work for a week, and to sit around watching movies all day. I went to Blockbuster and stocked up on videos, and to the grocery store to stock up on popsicles and ice cream. I was very disappointed when NOTHING HAPPENED. I was totally fine. I think I went out with friends that night. :-/

Oh, don't worry, dental sedation is great! I had intravenous conscious sedation done once for a removal of one wisdom tooth and once for a dental implant. At one point, while resting in the recovery chair, I thought I was speaking with someone, but they told me I was talking to a lamp!

Ouch. No sleep and dental surgery is awful. I hope it all goes well and you can get some sleep soon. It's amazing how things look up when you finally get some sleep. All the best!
