Okay, so I woke up around four this morning because my throat kept tickling, so I was coughing. I woke up enough to get a cough drop, and then tried to go back to sleep. Well, the cough drop wasn't helping, and I as I woke up I realized my mouth was bleeding some and that's why I was coughing. Oh dear. So I got up and got some gauze to bite on, and went back to my room and got on the computer to find out if I could why I was bleeding again...because I'm a bit paranoid about that. :) From all I could find, it sounded like it wasn't a big deal and I really wasn't bleeding very much, but I sat up for a half hour biting on the gauze, because you're not supposed to lie down until it stops bleeding.
After that I got back in bed and tried to sleep, but by then I was: a. awake, and b. hungry...but I certainly didn't feel like eating anything, so I tried to sleep (which is almost impossible when you're hungry) until I gave up and decided to read until everyone else got up.

Anyway, as a result I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night, so I just got up from a lovely nap! :)

I'm paranoid about this one side of my mouth because it's always been more sore, and bled more, etc...I saw something online that said the left side of your mouth might be more sore if your oral surgeon is right-handed, because they'd be working backwards, so maybe that's it, or maybe it was just harder on that side. At any rate, I've been worried that something is going to go wrong with it! :p

In other news, it is humid today...blech.

And the cats were sort of happy to get "their couch" back after I've been sleeping on it since Tuesday, but then they had also kind of taken over my bed, so they had to find other places to sleep last night. This is where I found Petunia when I got up this morning...Colin had left his beanbag chair in the living room and she took it:

Gracie claimed my bed during the day yesterday:

Okay, it's almost time to leave for evening church, so I'd better get going.

Aren't you just a bit, though? :) You are FINE, you will LIVE, BUCK UP!! Is your middle name "Lorraine"?

Yeah, I think that would scare me too. I never started to bleed after surgery. Well, like I bled the day of surgery. But not after that.

I hope you heal very soon so you don't have to worry about bleeding any more.

Well, the funny thing is, by Sunday night I was better than I have been! I was able to talk quite a bit and I had chicken nuggets for supper! Yum, real food!! :p
And that's after switching to ibuprofen pills instead of the liquid and taking only half as much as I had been taking...I'm so, so happy I feel better! I was due to take some more pain medicine at 6 this morning, but when I got up around 8:30, the only thing that was hurting was my tongue because I apparently bit while I was asleep last night! :D I had to take some more later, but it's amazing how suddenly I felt better!

Sorry, I'm a little hyper... :)
