Removal of My Wisdom Tooth

Just had my wisdom tooth removed yesterday. It's certainly an unforgettable experience. As I went to the polyclinic for the extraction, there's actually a nurse and a doctor doing the job. The nurse for advice and comforting of the patient -- me, and the doctor to execute the process. 

Firstly, it's the anesthetic injection, after that I saw a pliers like tool used to pull out the tooth. Then the doctor told me, as my tooth was in a awkward position, it's a bit hard to remove it. Soon, I saw a screw driver like tool, probably used to push the tooth to a removable position. After that the pliers like tool again.. In fact, after I saw the screw driver like item, I started praying that the process will be a smooth one and it'll end within 5 mins. Fortunately, the universe answered my prayers and it really ended pretty soon.. As the tooth finally came loose and was pulled out..

The instruction was to change the gauze bandage 30mins later if bleeding continues and take the pain killer 1 hour later. When I finally reached home, after the pain killer, I finally fell asleep for an hour or so. I hope this is the one and only time that I'd need to go through all these. But I'm certainly glad that the process is still pretty smooth. Look on the bright side, there wasn't any complications and no surgery was required even though it's a wisdom tooth. 

However, my gums still hurts and I can't really eat solid food. Hopefully, tomorrow it'd be better. So in the end, I had ice cream for dinner..

And 2 X eggs from Toastbox for supper. Only food that melts or are in liquid form that it's easy to eat... 

For today, I had cheesecake for brunch, mashed potatoes for dinner and probably more cheesecakes for supper so that I can just take my painkillers and go to bed in peace... I'm sure tomorrow will be better.
