Thanks Rachelle! Working on the next chapter now (well as best as I can with one hand, since I'm holding icepacks to my face with the other) :lol:

Glad you like it!

Owww! I had mine out a few months ago but it was under general anaesthetic because I had to get some work done to my palate too.

Yikes. I was supposed to get mine out under general anesthetic years ago but eventually I chickened out and went for local anesthesia. I could swear I was recalling all my anesthesia lessons during the first part of the procedure. :lol: :lol:

After a few bad experiences of dental/maxfax surgery under local I would have tried to persuade them to go for general if I'd had the option. As it was, with the extra work on my palate, it had to be general anyway. I have more surgery due for my jaw in a year or so but I'll be less happy-go-lucky about the general anesthetic next time. Morphine is nasty stuff and left me sick for a week after.
It was quite funny though, the anesthetist was having trouble finding a vein and I was really cheerful about it saying it happens all the time (i have really bad veins) and he was getting really stressed and by the time he got it he wasn't in the mood for calming me down before I got knocked out (encouraging me to count to 100 or something), he just said "sleep" in a really cross voice. Already half out of it with the morphine, my last moments of consciousness were of utter terror. :shock:

Yikes. Sorry to hear about the morphine part.

I mentioned this in the coincidence thread: in the middle of my extraction the dentist asked for the DVD in his office to be changed. The movie that came up: Les Misérables. The 2012 adaptation, to be exact. It was a good thing he finished the extraction before the movie got to "Lovely Ladies" otherwise I might have burst out laughing.

Haha, that would have been funny and slightly scary at the same time. Last time I was at my orthodontist, one of the staff had their ipod on the speakers in the surgery and at first I couldn't quite identify the music. At first I noticed it was something classical, possibly opera... it was quite quiet. Then "HE'S HERE, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!". It was the Hannibal-Think of Me scene from the original recording of Phantom. I've never been so bemused in my life. They must have had their ipod on shuffle because think of me was quickly followed by Shania Twain. This person nearly has as eccentric an ipod selection as I do. :lol:

Nice choice of music!

Actually my sister was the patient in the chair at that time. I think the dental assistants blocked her view of that scene, but she did find it funny. Meanwhile I was sitting out in the waiting room, watching the film. Another assistant handed me my extracted teeth as a souvenir. My father cringed and looked away, only to see the tooth drawing scene come up on screen. He still says that was one of the most bizarre experiences of the day.
