So I'm not crazy. I have a dry socket. For all you lazy clickers here is a short answer: This condition exist when a blood clot is dislodged from the surgery site thus exposing the bone and fine nerve endings. The blood clot helps in the stopping of bleeding and lays the foundation or framework for new tissue and bone to develop over a two-month healing process.

FANTASTIC! So I wake up this morning in crazy amounts of pain and I figure that this isn't normal. I grab my iphone and look up information on dry sockets. That's what I have! So I go into the surgeons office this morning and they filled my hole with some clove oil. Mmmmmmmm it tastes like shit and kinda burns. I'm not really sure if it's working. I've refrained from my daily dose of pain medication so I can feel if it's working. The hole doesn't hurt as much but my jaw is radiating with pain. Popped another pain pill an hour ago and I feel better.

Hopefully it will assist in the healing process since I somehow lost my clot. Oh where oh where can he be? My poor blood clot went away...just when I needed him most. Hehehe.

On to better news....

I won tickets from Do512 to see Tuna Does Vegas tomorrow night! That should be interesting. But the best news of the week is I HAVE TICKETS TO TWILIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT!!!!! Nory and I bought them at the Alamo South yesterday waiting in line to see the latest Bond flick. How awesome is that? I CANNOT WAIT!!!! I need to find a Team Jacob shirt.
