Ow, dammit!

It wouldn't be one of my surgeries without some setbacks. I lost a couple of my dissolving stitches Tuesday (actually bit through it), and while I didn't think anything of it at the time since they're supposed to come out on their own anyway, but now I am thinking I let some stuff loose. There's all sorts of bits flapping about inside my mouth, and I'm not sure that is supposed to be happening. What's more, this mutha is hurting! I was fine at the beginning of the week, but by yesterday, I was in pain, and still am off and on. Also, the way the swelling is going down, there is currently an air pocket of sorts in my cheek that is causing a bit of a speech impediment...I sound like Carol Channing. Hello Dolly, indeed.

Anyhoo, I'm waiting to hear back from my doc's office on Monday since it isn't like anyone can do anything about this stuff on a weekend and since I'm not bleeding or anything. I do have a bad feeling I'm going to require some re-stitching, and just hope I can get it done right without dropping a few thou to get back to NYC (remember, this is also some of the stitching that is supposed to even out my mouth!). Craiggers is pestering me to stay off the phone, so if I send you to voicemail, please leave a pleasant message, and I'll get back with you when I can talk without hurting or sounding like aged Broadway stars.

Why does this stuff always happen during nights, holidays, and weekends? Many times I have whined to Quinton, "Why can't you get sick on Tuesday morning?"

So now you have even more of a lisp?!?!

Just kidding; like I'd know.

LOL! Really, it isn't so much of a lisp as it is a really screwy Sylvester the Cat sloppy speech impediment. And I'm sure that will just make everyone take me so seriously when I start law school next month.
