PEESE A CATE

I just had oral surgery, so I thought I would post before the Novocaine wears off and I am praying for an anvil to fall on my head.  I thought I was just going in to have a molar removed, but apparently my jaw bone decided to make it a more interesting endeavor.  One extraction and a bone graft later, and I am none the worse for wear, but very very curious about the origin of my new parts.  I know that it came from a cadaver, so all I can hope is that the donor was very smart, very good looking, and very happy and healthy.

So it looks like I will be propped up in the Happy Chair today with a book and stitching in hand.

And lots and lots of Tylenol.

  8. My hubby has had that done so in addition to the cadaver bone in his jaw he also has extra metal parts in his spine and ankle as well..we tell him he's bionic.
    Hope you heal quickly and better living through pharmaceuticals.
