Day 39 - Role Reversal

Posted Nov 21 2010 6:55pm
This weekend was a little bit different in our house. This was mainly due to a bit of a role reversal between Chris and I. After finding out on Thursday that I needed to have my wisdom teeth removed within the next month (yes, the worst timing ever!), my dentist did me a huge favour and took my wisdom teeth out on Friday.

As someone who has never had any dental work done, this was a REALLY big deal for me. I was put on Tylenol 3s and antibiotics all weekend. Chris jumped into the role as caregiver and I was now the patient.

We learned fairly quickly that we are both better off in our original roles. Chris, although he had good intentions, was constantly fogetting that my jaw was in pain and would accidently poke my face or pinch my cheeks. He would also offer to make me a snack or buy me a treat with foods I wasn't able eat ( I was basically on a soup, ice cream and apple sauce diet).

Luckily, Chris' parents were in town for the weekend, so they were able to rescue me from caregiver for awhile. They wanted to see Chris before he started his procedure in a week and half and we got some early Christmas gifts :) We also learned that December 2 (Chris' start date is good luck in his family). It is the same day that Chris' mom started her job eight years ago and it is same day as Chris' parents' first date!

We also wanted to let everyone know that once we start this procedure on December 2 (11 more days!), we will begin blogging daily, or as often as we can.

We also wanted to thank everyone for all of the support we have recieved. We now have followers from all over the world and are just under 3,000 hits!
