Bring it on. What else can they throw at me?
My daily breakfast regime is now just 3-4 pieces of turkey bacon and coffee. I have lots of it. I have lots of pork bacon too, but I leave it alone, tempting as it is. My problem is my teeth. I had an upper molar cut out a few years ago, and it severely put a dent in what I can eat. The other side is missing two teeth side by side. The bottom has all teeth on both sides.
My upper left wisdom tooth has been chipped, and the one next to it has had a root canal, and has also broken off the top leaving me with little surface area with which to chew. Yeah, it’s a bitch to chew bacon, and well any type of meat; steak, pork chops, chicken. I am constantly searching for recipes since I am now mostly on a high protein diet.
The other night, I baked some boneless pork chops with Shake n Bake. They were delicious, and I ate them all, suffering through the long chewing process, noticing that my wisdom tooth was irritated.
Yesterday, my wisdom tooth hurt like hell when I bit down on it, but I cooked and ate bacon anyway. Well that really irritated it, and I was in constant pain the rest of the day.
I have some leftover hydrocodone from a previous dentist trip and some penicillin, and I took those last night at bedtime. I figured that the hydro would knock me out like a light. Wrong. It was a restless night of sleep, and my tooth still hurts like hell.
My BP was way up this morning too: 154/84.
No more hydro. I am still recovering from the one hit, but you know how when the sun reflects off a lens and it flashes across your eyes? That’s what I am getting this morning…and there is no sun today.
Ibuprofen, with the penicillin again at 3:00, and protein shakes today.
Need some ice cream, about 1/2 gallon would do. No peanuts.
