    And I don't wanna go :cry: :cry: :cry:

    I made a trip to Joann Fabrics today to distract myself. It did help, I must admit.

    Keep me in your thoughts tomorrow at 11am EST.

    Been there - done that! Good luck. Hope they put you to sleep - I was awake for all 4 of mine. Have to say ~ it's not as bad as you think. Will put you in prayers!

    Do yoursef a favor and today make an ice strap that fits your face. I took a long peice of fabric and put pockets for ziplock baggies filled with ice right over where my daughters cheeks were. Then I attached on top of her head with velcro. The ones they give you do not seem to fit right. And the cherrfull colors made her a bit more happy. Good luck.

    It will all go well!! I had to have all of mine pulled and a friend of mine told me to drink a lot of pineapple juice afterward, 24+ ounces a day. It has an enzyme that helps reduce swelling. I was scheduled to have my stitches removed in 10 days, I had to go in 6 days later because my gum swelling was down to the point that my stitches were loops around my gums. I had my 3 teens try this too when they had their wisdom teeth pulled and they healed very quickly, also. :D Just make sure that you follow their orders...good reasons behind them all...you do NOT want dry socket or an infection :wink:

    Do what they tell you to do. Take it easy the first day--it's not like you'll have any choice in the matter if you're getting a general aenesthetic, because you'll probably sleep all day. But the very next day get up and start doing stuff. You'll be right as rain before you know it!

    I guess I'm not wise, cause I only had one wisdom tooth, I sure am glad.My daughters don't have them either. My son is a real smarty, he had them :D Dentists scare me, but knocking you out is the way to go :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

    Best of luck to you Colletta. I send positive energy your way :D Kind of like what was said before, my experience with getting all of my wisdom teeth out went MUCH better than I imagined. May the same happen to you.
