On Tuesday 02/08
, I had my wisdom tooth extraction scheduled at KTPH. It was at 1pm, I was supposed to be there at 12:30pm. Mr Toh accompanied me and we took a direct bus there. I was starving by then....imagine not eating anything after 10pm and only drinking a glass of water at 2am. T_T
When we arrived there, we registered first, then the nurse brought us into the day care ward. I started feeling really jittery and anxious when I saw the beds. The nurse asked me to change into the gown, and after changing, she put the IV catheter on my left hand. It was my first time experiencing that, so I told her I was afraid of the pain and she was very nice and patient about it. =)
After that, we met with Dr Sylvia Tay again to sign the consent form. Then it was waiting time again....waited until 2pm plus until I wasn't scared. Lol.
But when the nurse led me into the operating theatre, I started feeling nervous again. Just seeing the bed in the middle of the room was pretty scary. The nurses asked me to lie down and started putting the high blood pressure and heartbeat monitors on me. She told me the doctor is coming soon and then the anesthetist came. She mentioned the music was very soothing, which I agreed with. Then the nurse put an oxygen mask on me and asked me to breathe deeply. I took 1 breath and I could feel the anesthesia going in my arm, after 1 more breath, my view started to blur and then I was out.
I woke up when I heard people talking. When I opened my eyes, I was quite disoriented. I was having a dream before that. Couldn't remember what though. I asked the nurse for a tissue to wipe my nose, and when I saw some blood, I asked the nurse why, and she mentioned it was because they had inserted a tube into my nose and throat to help with my breathing...and that I'd be having a sore throat for a few days after that. She then changed my gauze and pushed me out to the ward.
I felt like shit.....couldn't feel my lower jaw at all. After a while, the nurse came by again and changed my gauze and gave me a cup of apple juice~
I was lying there trying to sleep, but the ward was very noisy. T_T Then I saw my Mr Toh who just came back from having his lunch~ Spent the rest of the time trying to rest and trying to talk to him. Lol. The nurse advised that I could go home at 5pm if there is not much bleeding.
We went home at around 5pm, Mr Toh bought HL milk for me. When i reached home, I removed the gauze, it was still bloody....but I couldn't care less, then we went to sleep. We woke up at around 4am plus. =X Jitao skipped dinner.
There was no pain! I drank some milk while Mr Toh ate some fruit loop, lol. Took my medicine and we watched 醉后决定爱上你~.
I slept again and woke up slightly later. Cheeks swollen like sai. Drank some milk again and took my antibiotics.
We had lunch at KFC Hougang Mall~ I had the whipped potato while Mr Toh had a Zinger burger. Later in the afternoon, we went to GV Plaza Sing to catch Sex & Zen! They had a promotion going on~ Buy 1 ticket at S$8 and get 1 free! The movie was crap though.
While waiting for the movie, we went to have Gong Cha, and I discovered that their plum green tea is very nice! For dinner, I had wild mushroom soup at Saybon while Mr Toh ate their crepe~ The soup was yummy! Couldn't say the same for the crepe though. We then went to Dad's house where I bought Chawamushi from Ichiban Sushi~ I thought it was delicious and really value for money for $3.90.
Thursday 04/08: 2nd day
Woke up in the morning and drank milk again before taking my medicine. Napped again while waiting for Mr Toh to wake up. We went to Bedok to meet with his friends. I had pork porridge at the hawker centre. Still can't bite the pork very well...felt hindered by my swollen and stiff jaws. T_T
Had ice cream at McD! It's been so long since I've had that, I thought the price was still S$0.50, but it is now S$0.70. O.o After that, we went to Bedok Point and had dinner at Kungfu Paradise. I only had their mushroom soup though, but it wasn't nice.... Went home after that to rest.
Friday 05/08: 3rd day
As per usual, I had milk for breakfast and took my meds, then we booked tickets to catch Planet of the Apes. Went to meet Mr Toh's friends again at Bedok. Bought chawamushi from Sushi Tei to eat. It sucks. More expensive, smaller portion and not nice. T_T
After meeting them, we went to Tampines to catch our movie. It was pretty good~ I had a corn soup from Mos Burger before the movie. After the movie, we headed back to Hougang where I ate porridge. I got quite fed up cos I had to eat so slowly. T_T Went home after that to rest.
Saturday 06/08: 4th day
Woke up and took my meds as per usual. I have to take 6 pills every morning. Damn sian.
Cheeks still a little swollen. We headed to Hougang Mall for lunch, there is this new restaurant called 状元府. We had tried the xiao long bao before and we loved it~
This time, we ordered the set meal~ It consists of their 炸酱面, xiao long bao (小笼包), sweet & sour pork, 口水鸡, garlic kailan and glutinous rice ball in ginger soup~ The set costs $36 for 2 persons.
Super yummy 炸酱面! Loved the taste and the texture of the noodles~! Delicious!
Looks super yummy right???
Another favourite dish of ours: 小笼包~! The soup is very flavorful but Mr Toh finds the meat inside a tad tough. But it was alright for me. I am drooling just thinking about it.
Sweet & sour pork which I did not touch at all...didn't dare to eat something so "hard". T_T But Mr Toh commented that it is very yummy though, quite surprisingly~
Another pleasant surprise was this saliva chicken, 口水鸡. The meat was tender and usually I don't like chicken cooked this way as they tend to have a weird smelly taste. But the dish here was yummy~ and free of weird smells. I remember we had this dish in Taipei 鼎泰丰, and it sucks. It gave me a very disgusting memory of this dish, but the one here is nice!
For dessert, it was rice dumplings in ginger soup~ The rice dumplings were normal enough....but the ginger was overpowering. T_T Mr Toh choked on the soup. Lol!
Overall, it was a great meal! 1 of the yummiest ever since I had my teeth extracted! Damn happy!!! Had lots of stuff stuck in my mouth after that though. Lol. Mr Toh said he felt like listening to people sing so we jio Andrew and his gf to East Coast. But they had something on early the next day so we didn't go in the end. We had dinner at dad's place and went home after that~.
Sunday 07/08: 5th day
Woke at 11+, had milk and took my meds.
Waited for Mr Toh to wake up. While he was washing up, I hid under the blanket and tried to make myself as flat as possible. When I heard him come in, I waited for him to call me, but he didn't! I could hear him opening his drawers and getting dressed, so I popped out from under the blanket, I was scared he will go out without me! Turns out he didn't even know I was in the room! *faint* Super funny!!
He said he was thinking how come he didn't see me anywhere in the house when he was on the way back to the room from the toilet, he even looked in Grandpa's room but didn't see me, so he decided to change first. Lol!
I was also saying that Mr Toh likes to torture me, he always sleep late and wake up late then play game somemore when I am starving already!! When I tell him I am hungry, he tell me people attack him. T_T.
The weather was very good today cos it rained for the whole morning. No wonder my piggy sleep until so shiok.... We went with Andrew to 四马路 to pray then we had lunch at Burlington Sq, had our favourite Parklane Wanton Mee!
Slacked at Cafe Patisserie until dinner time. I had grilled fish with mash potato and beans at Astons at the Golden Wall Centre. Nothing else to do after that, so we went home~
Going back to work today after resting for so many days! I only have 1 day of work before the public holiday on Tuesday~ Shiok~
But I woke up with blood in my mouth!! Ahhhh! Spit out some blood and small pieces of a brown stuff. I told Mr Toh and he said it is probably because the blood clot got dislodged. Scary stuff.... T_T Was bleeding a little on and off the whole day.... =( But no pain at all these few days, so at least that is something to be happy about.
