Bleeding Gums Murphy

Ahoy hoy everyone!

Yes, I'm sorry I skipped the month of March and half way through April without even a hello. March was busy both good and bad but nothing new or really worth mentioning. So I'll skip to the "good" stuff, and by good stuff, I mean my pain!

What is it this time? Well, yesterday I had the pleasure of having a gum graft done under on of my lower front tooth. the procedure itself took about an hour. Fairly painless, the worst part was when the periodontist had to scrape my tooth and it was like fingernails on a chalkboard. inside my mouth...

Luckily I had the foresight (excuse) to take a day off for the procedure. So I rested most of the day. My palette was still bleeding a few hours later ad the graft site is still bleeding a bit now as I right this too. So far though all normal. I just really hope it heals up quickly and properly so I won't have to go through this anytime soon.

Oh and before I forget. The absolute worst part of it all is that I can't bite into anything for three weeks! So it's a mostly liquid diet for now, until I feel confident enough I can each small bits of solid food without ruining the graft. So of course, now I'm craving for a big fat juicy burger...... argh!

Hope everyone's doing well and enjoy your food for me!
