Tooth Extraction, Driving & Rocket launch - on the same day
Wednesday, February 07, 2018
Whew, glad yesterday is over. It was a rough day.
I slept horribly Monday night, so when my alarm went off Tuesday morning to go the gym, I thought about skipping it, especially since I had the day off. But I didn't. I had a good workout, so I'm glad I forced myself to go. This was the only good part of my day.
Then I had my wisdom tooth pulled. It was only partially impacted and I opted for local anesthesia, so the procedure was quick. However, it took about over 4 hours for the anesthesia to wear off and about 6 hours for it to finally stop bleeding.
About an hour after I had my wisdom tooth pulled, I had to drive to Orlando to pick up my son for an orthodontist appointment. It's about 1 1/2 hours each way. Drive to Orlando to pick him up, drive home for his appointment. Drive back to Orlando to drop him off and then drive home. That's 6 hours of driving - immediately having my wisdom tooth removed.
Except it wasn't only 6 hours drive time. I live just south of Cape Canaveral and the Falcon Heavy rocket launched just before I had to bring him home. Everyone that had come to watch the launch was now heading home, so the roads were a standstill. The normal 1 1/2 hour trip to my son's place turned into 2 1/2 hours. So it was 7 hours on the road total. And I actually missed the launch, just heard the sonic boom. Since I was on the road so much, I didn't realize it had been delayed. I was in Orlando during the original scheduled time.
And eating was rough because I was on the road, but was limited on what I could eat due to just having my tooth extracted. Did okay calorie wise, but not great nutrition wise.
Okay, I'm done whining.
Today's a new day and I'm feeling much better!
