All is SWELL

Everything went great, and after a two hour nap when we got home, I have been just fine. (side note. . . it took the doctor 45 min longer than he thought it would take. . . I really do have stubborn teeth!) Gauze in the mouth is truly grossing me out.

But I am in good hands. Ainsley is taking GREAT care of me. Taking naps with me, or ON me really. I wanted Mike to take a picture, but it didn't cross his mind. He doesn't have blogging on the brain! She puts chapstick on my lips, and nose, and cheeks, and hair. She also likes to watch me drink, and dribble slim fast all down the front of me.

My PERFECT little helper!

Yes there will be nice pictures of my fat cheeks in the future. . . I know I have mentioned how much I dislike pictures of myself. . . why I would want to post these, is beyond me!

What a fancy head wrap thing. Amazing what 12 years of advancement can do since I had mine taken out! I am glad Ains is helping you out. Good luck with the future swelling and bruising. No fun!!

Those pictures are priceless! You STILL look beautiful no matter what! I am glad you are doing better. Are you able to eat anything????

Lacey said...

Aw-poor girl! If we were still neighbors I would bring you some soup! Bummer!
Hope your weekend is restful and quiet!

Lara said...

Ohhh...you look miserable. And i would post the pictures, too, just so everyone would feel sorry for me and bring me smoothies or something. Which I would totally do if I lived anywhere near you!

Hey there foxy lady...love the pictures. I just found some pictures on the computer of Janalie's wisdom teeth extraction- of all the rotten luck there are no photos of mine...but it was fun to look at you two in all your swollen glory!

I am getting ready to attempt some potato broccoli soup. . . pureed liquid. I am stoked. I actually feel pretty good. My jaw hurts more than anything, so nothing but baby bites going into this mouth. And actually my lungs ache. Guess they didn't like all of the gas being pumped in. . .

My name is Andrea said...

o, i'm so sorry!

I love the head wrap thng, though!

Brooke I am soooo sorry! I hated getting my wisdom teeth out. What did your dentist think she was doing? I went in when I was 25 and the dentist was like "you should've gotten these out at 18 then your roots wouldn't have been very long." Wow I can't believe you endured that for three hours--you are TOUGH!

Wish I was close by to take the kids so you could nap. Extractions STINK!

Poor Brooke! Dont worry I looked the same way. That is to cute Ainsley helping you. I know the Gauze about made me throw up. It was gross I will agree with that. Try drinking Ensure drinks Brooke they are pretty good. Yes my Jaw hurt for a few days after. Good luck you will do fine

POOR YOU!! I am so sorry that doesnt look fun! But it is very nice of your kids to take care of you!!! That is so cute!!

Juli said...

The worst part is over. It is all down hill from here:)

Harris Family said...

Wow you are one tough chick! I would have told the dentist nevermind and drove home in tears. I hope you feel better too. Thank Goodness for little angels to help us forget our pain!

Brandi Jo said...

OUCHY! I am glad that you are ok. That stinks that you could not have it all done the same day and they just sent you home. Shame-on them!! I would make her pay a bill or something!.

About the lense, i am trying to decide which one to buy... they 1.8 or the 1.4.. one is double to price, but it will work for when I get a BIGGER camera... so, I am trying to make up my mind. :-)

Sara said...

I think you look so pretty in the first picture. I am serious.

Reisner's said...

you poor girl. I'm so glad you had such a good helper though

Marci Coombs said...

You poor thing! I wish we were neighbors and I could help you out a bit! I'm hoping they gave you some great pain killers (perqiset?) so you don't have to feel much of it! GET WELL SOON!!!

The Schneider Family said...

You poor thing! SO CRAZY, but I am glad you are doing better even if you have swelled up. I think your pictures are way cute!

Bethanne said...

Omigosh, I love those pictures. And I'm glad you are feeling better. I've been thinking about you!
