As expected, the anticipation of oral surgery was worse than the actual event.
My eating today is limited by order of the doctor, and of course, no exercise today; but I'm doinig 'ok'. I do have 'discomfort' - thanks to Vicodin to keeping the pain level down to that.
I took a look at the implant this evening (I'm curious, just call me 'kitty') and there's weird looking thing stitched into my jaw. Ok, curiousity satisfied.
Sorry to bore you with going on and on about this surgery, but it's been a big deal for me.
Have a great weekend.

I'm calm about tomorrow's procedure. And I dare say that the anticipation has been much worse than the actual fact will be. I have a VERY active imagination. : )
I've been busy today: cleaned the kitten room at a no-kill shelter (takes about 1-1/2 hrs to do it right), then went grocery shopping this afternoon. This evening my knitting group meets and I'm looking forward to the new grandbaby pictures one of the girls plans to bring.
I expect I'll sleep a lot tomorrow, since I'll be put 'out' for the oral surgery, and that usually leaves me somewhat groggy the rest of the day. Oh well, there's zero chance of going over my calorie goal for tomorrow!

When I had my teeth cleaned earlier this year, my dentist informed me that my body was reabsorbing one tooth. He sent me to an oral surgeon who removed that tooth (a molar) and implanted some cadaver bone to build up my jaw. Now it's time to have him implant the screw in my jaw in prep for my dentist to attach a new tooth (early next year). I HATE, HATE, HATE mouth pain, and not being able to eat right. BUT, I'm making plans for nourishment. I have a box of Instant Breakfasts, will be able to eat some soup, jello, and other non-chewed food the first few days. For pain? Well, the last time, the surgeon gave me Vicodin. :D That's the only bright spot.
THANK YOU! all who wrote to me. Thank you for the encouragement and especially thank you for the prayer. I know prayer changes people and things.

I reached a goal of actually DOING some strength exercises. I know, what have I been doing up to now? (not going to answer that directly). I'm a basically lazy person when it comes to exercising, except my walking buddy keeps me walking - we're doing great! I am determined to do strength exercises at least a few times a week - baby steps, folks, baby steps. When I get to that goal, I can add another day per week. etc.

Ok, so yesterday was an up-and-down day, but I did pretty well staying w/in my nutrition goals.
Today, I walked the mile (uphill) to my friend's house and we walked for 40 minutes up and down hills; then I walked the mile home. I know I burned a lot of calories, and my metabolism is up - hopefully, it'll burn off another bunch of calories.
Let's go Spark!
