so, what a stressful day yesterday was. basically both my dentist and the oral surgeon had screwed up a lot of things, and ultimately, i had to be awake for the surgery, which i was furious about, but what could be done. it wasn’t too bad, although i was crying for part of it because i could feel the pressure and was expecting pain (which, of course, never came during that time, since i was on so many drugs). graeme came up from seattle to take care of me and bring me home from the surgery… he was in the waiting room and said the whole thing took about an hour and fifteen minutes (for four teeth — which also happened to be considered “high risk” since they were sort of dividing a nerve). it felt like fifteen minutes to me. i listened to my ipod but don’t remember a single song that played. and on the drive home, i don’t remember anything except waking, and, with my mouth full of gauze asking graeme “why did we have to take the ferry?” (from burnaby to downtown). he asked me to repeat myself and i did, and he confirmed, and was basically just like “go back to sleep.” then, i slept all day and night, and graeme woke me to take my medicine. he’s the best.

for a girl that’s never been to a doctor for anything more serious than an ear infection (excepting when i was born, which really doesn’t count), this is pretty hard-core…

so, you know how i’ve been sick? well, i’ve been doing my darndest to get better by tomorrow. what’s so special about tomorrow? well, it just happens to be the day i am having 1, 2, 3, FOUR wisdom teeth removed. pretty crummy, eh? so, yeah, that’s what i’ll be up to tomorrow. and the whole reason i’m telling you this is because it’s nearly 2am, and i’m still wide awake. i went to bed at 11. i’ve known about this appointment for weeks and haven’t been too stressed, but as soon as my head hit the pillow, the awful thoughts settled in. plus, i knew i couldn’t eat past midnight and don’t know when i’ll be able to eat next, so i ate right before bed and am *still* so full (four hours later). pluuuuussss, the fact that i know i’m not allowed to drink anything makes me feel sooooo thirsty. like, “i’ve been walking through the desert for seven days” thirsty.

ok, 2am sharp. off to try again…

ps. for those of you who are waiting for an email response for any emails sent in the past couple days, i’m so sorry for the delay in my response, but i haven’t forgotten about you. promise.

pps. here’s part of my conversation with graeme tonight…
me: …people sometimes die when they’re put to sleep…
graeme: that almost never happens
me: …yeah, but, who has the worst luck ever for that stuff?…
graeme: that’s true, you’re always dying.

when i took this, i only had one chance. my settings were off, so it took a LOT of recovery… but at least i got the shot. sometimes, the moment ends before you know it.  i just loved the way he looked in that alley, with a tie, sitting on a cardboard box.

when on my way to the movies the other day (the reader, in case you were wondering… i’ve now seen it twice…) i saw this.
