I’m back to wandering around the house in a somewhat tipsy manner. The tonne of Halcion they put me on wore off. I slept from 3 until 9:30. Now I have a mouthful of temporary apparatus. Smile picture in a few days when I am less self-conscious.

Obviously there is hunger (having to eaten since 9pm last night)

I had some wonton soup, a pepsi, and am now attempting mango sorbet.

We’ll see how this goes.

For those curious about The Project. The house rule was as follows:

  1. You may blog
  2. You may not drive
  3. You WILL NOT code.

SO back to that tomorrow.

For my last procedure while I was here they gave me a crushed Halcion under my young to increase the effectiveness. Just now they gave me 3. I expect to be flying in about 30-45 minutes. Mind you Halcion sublingual is horrid in taste.

Today’s work will involve 5 extractions, 1 re-crowning, and a temporary appliance.

The Whovian in me looks forwards to saying, “New Teeth… That’s weird”

Despite the Valium in my system, I can still feel a small wave of anxiety… But I can also feel myself getting drowsier.

Today is the day that my dental work, occurs. Last night I was prepped by sleeping with Prince Valium and this morning I have taken a Halcion. I will be in procedure for roughly 5 hours.  The initial effects of he drug are only beginning to knock on the outside or to my brain. Just a vague lack of anxiety and a mild case of tired,

I hope to post more if I can… We’ll see how things go. This has been a long time coming,

On the way to my first appt. Just took my first Halcion. I’m told this should be a fun trip. The Valium from last night is wearing off. I’ve been told to fast so I’m psychologically very hungry.

The appointment is dental work. Today is simply impressions to decide if I’m going to require a dental implant or worse a denture. Normally impressions are a simple process but due to a horribly overactive gag reflex they have to knock me out.

Theoretically the Halcion will seriously impair me. I’ve never done “oral sedation” to this degree before. I was given Valium a decade or so back for LASIK.

20 minutes in, I’m not really feeling the Halcion at all. I’ll keep people posted. I’m curious to try to observe the effects. If it doesn’t take me down too hard, I hope to have my next Armchair Director post up before tonight’s episode.

More later!
