#1016: Pre-Op

I really don’t give a shit what people say.  “Oh it’s no big deal, I had a tooth out last week.”  Well to me it’s a big deal.  I’ve had teeth out before too, but never so seriously that they are advising five days of complete rest afterwards.  Five days seems serious, right?

I was advised to treat myself to something nice to look forward to after the surgery, so after a lacklustre trip to Toys R Us (which apparently Rob Daniels didn’t know could be shortened to TRU!) I placed an Amazon order.  And I ordered this sexy beast of a set.

It’s the first ever fully transformable Lego set, and it’s Optimus Prime himself. This toy has been getting (mostly) rave reviews so I decided this should be my get-well present to keep myself occupied. It has been about 15 years since I last purchased a Lego set.  It will be fun to see how much the system has changed since I was into it.

So that was Sunday.  Monday was a bit of a shit-show.  Jen had three seizures, two of them in bed.  I barely slept last night, but I made it through work today and now I’m off until next week.  Poor girl really suffered yesterday.  I worry about taking care of her during recovery.  My parents will be pitching in to help since I won’t be able to do it all by myself.

I’ve been lucky to have plenty of support from friends.  They know who they are!

Tomorrow’s the day.  I’m scheduled for 8 AM.  If I can, I will update you as soon as possible.  I would like to record funny videos of swollen cheeks and muffled speech but I guess we shall see what I’m in for.

Wish me luck!
