For the first time in my life, I was "put under" on Monday. I remember making small talk to the doctor and he gave me a shot, a mask being put on me and the next thing I knew, I was being walked into the recovery room. It was a really easy way to have all 4 wisdom teeth pulled.
I was pretty loopy after the surgery but I was just aware enough to enjoy my loopiness. The drugs removed my filter though, so I was more goofy than usual. As I lay in the recovery room, I was singing the drug-trip Beatles songs, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, etc.
My recovery has been pretty simple. I lay in bed for about 4 hours but was able to make an 8:00 meeting that lasted over two hours. I'm just about ready to eat normal food and I haven't needed any pain medicine. Of course, that could all change if the blood clots went out so I'm being careful. I did spend almost 5 hours today passing out flyers for Trunk-or-Treat, so I'm feeling pretty good.
