Hardwares In My Jaw, The Boobs Shots, and A Bottle of Vicodin

Well... that title should draw some people off Google Search ;)
(If you're one of those who got drawn by googling boobs shots, maybe check THIS out.)

Today I went back to the Orthodontist to do the second stage of my dental implant. He opened up my gums and exposed the screw (oh, pardon me, I didn't give a warning to those who can't take this kind of "opening the gum" talk). So anyway, I now have screws with caps in my mouth. Three of them! Yes, 3 sets of screws and metal caps! I have a feeling the airport security check will go off when I walk in because of all these metal in my mouth.

After an hour and a half of this process with the orthodontist, I immediately drove to Kaiser to get a Mammogram. Out of the blue, Kaiser called me 3 weeks ago saying that my doctor recommended I take a mammogram. And since this is the only time I could do it, I did it anyway despite my dental surgery in the morning. It's my first time to have a mammogram. I asked the technician if it's going to be like a photoshoot of my boobs, and she said "pretty much". But oi, it wasn't just a photoshoot - I didn't know that they had to press it hard when they take the shot. Oh well. Bottomline, it's better safe than sorry - and since I am already 41 and haven't had any mammogram done, my doctor thought it would be wise to get one.

And so now I am staring at this bottle of Vicodin in front of me. I need to take some because the anesthesia in my gums are wearing off. I just decided to do my post for the day (for the night actually) before I take this, because for sure I'd be sleeping in tomorrow (and will go to bed early tonight).

Nigthy night...
