Ow

Ok two days with some pain that hopefully will result in some gain.

Yesterday - minor surgery in my mouth to deal with sleep apnea. This required spraying something vile tasting in my mouth to start the numbing process, then THREE - count them - THREE shots into my soft palette. This was supposed to numb me completely, but I swear I felt the last two of the three posts they inserted go in - the poor nurse got her hand clutched very tightly.
Well the day after surgery I'm still a little sore but not as bad as yesterday. I can eat normally without pain which is a big plus.

Then today James and I went to get international immunizations (the whole family is going to Guyana on a medical mission trip in July). We had to go to a neighboring county because no one where I live did these shots. Because it was a county health department we had to wait a while.
Well, I wound up having to have three shots, which included a tetanus shot because I couldn't remember when my last one was.
So sore arm and sore mouth - don't mess with me :-)

Tina, you can run but you can't hide! ;-)

Piper, it's called the Pillar Procedure. Here's a link that describes it - http://sleepdisorders.about.com/od/surgery/a/Pillar.htm
