And I have to take a Time out.....
Yes - I know - that picture is a tad bit scary. What does it mean? Its the reason why I have to take a time out (per dr.'s orders).
Yesterday I had Oral Surgery - to be more specific without turning stomachs, I had to have a gum graft (where they took skin from the roof of my mouth and transplanted it over my gums on 2 lower front teeth). Yes it is as fun as it sounds. I was knocked out for about an hour, received a plastic retainer (which was molded from my mouth at a previous appointment) as a parting gift and then was sent home to 'recover'.
Pain isnt horrible - wearing this retainer sucks, i have to 24/7 to cover the incision site on the roof of my mouth so eating isnt quite fun. Its much easier to drink than to eat when I have to chew so a lot of yesterday consisted of Milk Shakes, yummy yummy steak n shake milk shakes.
Today though is going to be smoothies, I've sent Brett out to get ingredients (sherbet, frozen yogurt, fruit) to attempt to re-create some Planet Smoothie, Smoothies. So if you know of any good recipes out there for smoothies (no banana - i hate banana) post me a comment :)
