I was told I would be sleepy and sore

After fielding a couple wisdom tooth horror stories the past few weeks, I started thinking maybe I wasn’t taking the whole thing seriously enough. Then I talked to Otis yesterday and he said his weren’t really a big deal. So, that helped restore me to complete confidence that I wouldn’t suffer much pain and inconvenience.

And that’s the way it’s been. Most everyone I talked to said I’d be super sleepy and just want to go to bed when I got back home–that’d I’d likely sleep in the car ride even. Nope. I was a little groggy for maybe 15-20 minutes… but even when Sherry was in the drug store for like 20 minutes, I just looked at some Toledo-area parks and recreation map.

Spent the rest of the day just hanging out with Sher. Watched some Sports Center, some J-TV cooking show, e-mailed a bit, watched “The Office” season 1 (very funny show), ate a smoothie and some chicken noodle soup. Pretty much life as normal.

So, once again, prayers are coming to pass. My small group prayed it would be a very uneventful experience; I think that is what Jason prayed for at staff meeting as well. And it’s what I was praying for. I prayed the Lord would loosen the teeth ahead of time. Who knows if they were extra loose or not… but I know they aren’t sore… so that suggests something.

Thanks to any and everyone who lifted me up. I appreciate it.
