I’m Having a Little Procedure

Hello Rovers.


Hope this little post finds you well. I have a few random photographs to share with you from this week and the news that I will be going under the knife to have my wisdom teeth cut out in the early morning {Thursday}. Would love your prayers for good pain management and very wet sockets that don’t get dry. Amen. Oh and for no jaw complications because for the last 7+ years the discs in both of my temporomandibular joints have been and still are dislocated… which equals jaw issues. Which could potentially make this a little less comfortable. But Dr.E assures me he can just put my jaw back in if it dislocates during surgery… fantastic! πŸ™‚

This takes away my anxiety. I love Rover’s hiney. And his dunlap.


Morgan told her teachers that I had cancer in my teeth and that is why they have to be taken out. She apparently got a little confused. We’re all clear now.


Kids are hilarious. Can you imagine the stories that preschool teachers must have?

Sometimes I wonder what Justin would think if he walked in the door at any given moment, especially this moment.


Good night, I’m off to bed, I’ll be back with a swollen face and narcotic-laced post soon, the combination should make for good blog material! I’m already praying that I conduct myself appropriately coming out of sedation. Erika was excused from the dinner table in high school for telling crude jokes post-op! She tried to blame it on the meds!! And I’m still wondering why her teeth came out 15 years ago and mine didn’t!?!

Thanks in advance for your prayers!!

    What sweet pictures! My brother-in-law (before he was such) once had an entire dinner table pretty much peeing our pants at his wisdom teeth removal painkiller-induced commentary. Make sure they give you the good stuff! Saying a little prayer for you and I’ll be checking back soon hoping for some good entertainment πŸ˜‰

    hi! i know that i haven’t met you, but i’ve read your blog and it’s been very encouraging to me, so thank you πŸ™‚ and i’ll pray that you have a quick and painless recovery and that surgery goes well! when i had my wisdom teeth out, it wasn’t bad at all πŸ™‚ i didn’t even need the pain meds, i just took tylenol, i’ll be praying that you have the same experience that i did!

    I will be praying for you tomorrow! I had mine done last year and nobody told me not to try and drink through a straw so I got “dry sockets” and it is more painful than childbirth girl! So…my words of wisdom…don’t try and drink from a straw. Keep the packing in REAL tight and it will all be good!

    Love the pics!

    Good luck! Tell ’em to turn up the laughing gas. Seriously. It made the whole procedure quite easy for me (I’m not going to lie, the painkillers afterwards helped as well).

    Rover’s picture is hilarious. Hilarious.

    As a teacher of Juniors and Seniors in high school, you should hear the stories WE hear!! OH MY!!! (Pretend that OH MY is in BOLD and 72 pt.!!)

    At times I think I could write a best-selling book but no one would ever believe that we really hear all that!

    Good luck tomorrow. I also had that done at your age. Ugh. But it’s not as bad as you think.

    I’ll say a prayer for you Darby πŸ™‚ You’ll do fine πŸ™‚ As you could tell, I was so excited to meet you at Caroline’s wedding on Sat. πŸ™‚ One of my friends here in HOOVER,AL ask me Monday if you were there because she read your blog where you mentioned going to a wedding. Of course I said “YES….AND I MET HER!!!!!” All my friends are jealous :):)

    March 24, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    Praying for you, Darby! I had mine out about 10 years ago and had a pretty painful recovery … but I bet you will do GREAT. Praying, praying.

    My husband was laid off from his job of 8 years in December of 2008. It took until August of last year for him to find another job, and his office is located in the Galleria Office Tower at the Galleria Mall in Hoover, Ala. (I gave you all that info because I thought you might know the mall.) Our daycare teachers all knew our situation, and they had helped us with the ongoing cost of daycare because if we took the kids out while he was looking for work, (1) it would have been harder for him to look full-time, and (2) we would have lost our spots at school with little hope of getting them back in once he found a job.

    So one day when I was picking the kids up, one of the teachers asked me politely — but haltingly — “Did Mr. H get a job, um, at the, uh, mall?” Which is exactly what our 4-year-old had told them: “My dad got a job at the mall.”

    Totally cracked me up.

    I have to get mine out this summer. Both of my sisters got theirs out in high school. I have no idea why I never did, but I do know that I am NOT looking forward to it. I will be praying that your surgery is uneventful and dry socket free.

    Oh, and all 4 of those photos are so stinkin’ cute!

    March 24, 2010 at 11:45 pm

    Oh, sweet D!
    I’m praying! I’m sure it will be a piece of cake! Hope everyone will spoil you b/c of your procedure! Allyson told me after I got mine done…”Ashley, You look AWFUL!! AWFUL!” πŸ™‚ I’m sure you’ll still be cute though! PS-It was NOT painful for me, but I tried to rush to the bathroom too soon by myself and passed out on the way to the bathroom-just b/c I wasn’t fully with it yet! So that’s my advice…take it easy, and ask for help when you need to go to the potty!
    Love you!

    I love the picture of JM’s hiney and dunlap. But what I love more is the picture is named “Roverscrack”. And that’s how I file pictures, too.
    Hope it goes really well with the surgery and you gets lots of attention, ice cream and more child labor. πŸ™‚

    You’ll do fine – It was a strange procedure for me (14 years ago). I slept 2 days, I was so confused as to what day it was. It was great rest! Love your pictures – baby hineys are so cute! The wisdom teeth experience was the best anesthesia ever:) Have a good assistant on hand who will be willing to change your packing while you sleep. FYI – it is weird when the stitches in your mouth start to dissolve & come out…a little stringy! I’ll keep you in my prayers. Hope it goes well.

    Feeling PRETTY selfish that you’ve been keeping up with/praying for me, and I didn’t even KNOW you were about to have surgery. Jeremiah had his out when we were engaged, and you cannot even FATHOM what a baby he was. We began to jokingly refer to it as, “open-tooth surgery” Praying for you right this minute and your open-tooth surgery!

    Will be praying for you. Rest, and I second the comment above- NO STRAWS!

    Funny story about when I got mine out (hopefully this will make you smile when you read it post op)…I had the “knock-you out completely” procedure when I was in college. Post op, they took me out a back door that was easier to get in/out of a car. Waking up at home, I asked my mom- what was that on the wall on the way out? She had been focused on me and had no idea what I was asking about. I swore up and down that it was a rabbit with antlers.

    My family thought it was just the painkillers talking, of course, and I was CONVINCED of what I saw. Fast forward to the post opt appt where I met with the surgeon/dentist…at the end, I said “I just have to ask”…and proceeded to tell him the whole story. He laughed and showed me his gag-gift “Jackalope” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackalope that someone had given him.

    I conveyed how that was a cruel, cruel joke to play on someone just out of anethesia!! πŸ˜‰

    So may your recovery be swift, and your dentist be jackalope-free!

    I will be praying for a speedy/painless recovery for you. It’s kinda comical how swollen my face got with that surgery- i was also trying to high 5 the whole staff when i was leaving the office. Just take the pain meds they give you and enjoy eating soft frozen food for 3 days.

    You’ll do great! I had major pre-op anxiety, but it really went very well. The only hard part was that for days/weeks afterward, it hurt to laugh and smile. I kept having to say to my fam “stop being funny – stop making me laugh! it hurts! it hurts!”
    Hope it goes well for you and you can enjoy the convalescing! If nothing, it’s a good excuse for laying around and eating jello!
    p.s. the title of this post made me laugh

  • elizabeth

    You’ll do great…praying for a speedy recovery for you. One way to look at it, is that you’ll have a great sleep and I’m sure as a mom of three young children it has been a long time since you’ve had a great sleep!

    Love the pics as always!

  • Karen
    March 25, 2010 at 8:20 am

    Here’s to a speedy and painless recovery! Even if the recovery were both speedy and painless, I would be milking it for all it was worth. I am 27 years old and have never had my wisdom teeth out either. I love the picture in which you enlisted JM and Paige to sweep while you lounged (un?)comfortably (on the laundry room floor?!?!). I am a long time reader but first time commenter. I love your blog and there is usually a point in the long, long work day I think ‘What is Darbs up to?’ (Yes, in my head I call you Darbs, I am sorry.)

    I’ll be praying that you have a quick & painless recovery! I had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out 2 summers ago. I chose to stay awake and have laughing gas. It really wasn’t that bad. I think I may have taken one pain pill or just Advil after the process. I hope you have a similar experience.
    If you have any bleeding after you’re done, I put flavored tea bags (chamomile was good!) in my mouth to apply pressure. My better than cotton/gauze!
    Oh, and remember: no drinking from straws.
    Hope you’re feeling better soon! πŸ™‚

    Stupid question for you: I’m a latecomer to your blog, so I’m a little confused. Is your son’s name Rover, but you also call all your children Rovers? Or is it a pet name that you use more often for him?

    I gave myself dry sockets-codeine made me feel sick. No spitting or sucking on staws πŸ™‚ Two stories: When my husband had his wisdom teeth out he first asked his mom on the car ride home to um…scratch his you know whats. Later when she told him what he said, he freaked out, “DID YOU?!?!” When I woke up from the anesthetic, all I did was weep for about 3 hours. Doctor said that is normal for some people. Scared my Dad half to death. You’re going to do great Darby!

  • Melissa
    March 25, 2010 at 9:20 am

    By now you’re likely already in surgery, but will be praying for a smooth recovery. I had mine out in high school, and it wasn’t that bad on the top; I got dry sockets on the bottom and that was another story! And I did NOT drink through a straw! Anyway, my advice is if you’re not better in a couple of days, call the doctor, and do NOT let them tell you, “Oh, it just takes some people longer to heal. Tell her to take TWO of the Demerol.” So, I suffered for the entire week and when I went back for my follow up, Dr. D asked, “WHY didn’t you come back to us when you were hurting this bad? You’ve got dry sockets.” Well uh, your office staff told me it was normal…So, be demanding if you need to be!

    Good Luck!
    Hope everything goes well for you and they come out easily… unlike mine did… which left me looking like a blue football for almost 2 weeks… and I couldn’t really open my mouth…
    But on a more positive note, you’ll get to eat lots of ice cream! That really helped me numb the pain (which wasn’t bad really, but it still helped).

    Oh my, that picture of JM was great! Really cracked me up!! How darn cute/funny. I hope the surgery went well and that you are now resting comfortably. All I remember from when I got mine out was that afterwards my saint of a Mom put frozen peas up to my jaw every 20 minutes or so! It helped so much! Maybe the girls can act as your “nurse.” πŸ™‚

    I, too, often wonder what my daughter’s teachers have heard. I know that she’s told them she has a dog named Zoe (we don’t, it’s actually two different black labs, one that belongs to my brother and one that belongs to a cousin, that she thinks are the same dog and, apparently, her’s) and that we’re expecting a baby girl named Ellie (I’m not pregnant). Oh well, she keeps us laughing.

    Praying for a successful wisdom teeth surgery and recovery for you! My husband just had his out on Friday and all went perfectly-in and out in 15 minutes and back on the road! He took full advantage of Chick-Fil-A’s Strawberry Milkshakes You will do great.

  • Lauren
    March 25, 2010 at 11:29 am

    My husband just had his wisdom teeth out- ICE ICE ICE. That is the key to a good recovery! Ice even more than they tell you too- ice when you are sleeping. My mom also told me to mix 2 parts water with 1 part alcohol and freeze it in baggies. This was the best idea because it made a stiff-slushy mixture that molds to your face and more comfrotable than frozen veggies or ice. good luck!

    March 25, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Hi Darby. I will pray for you post-op… which would be now actually. … I had this done last year and will leave out the dry-socket details. Anyways… PRAYERS FOR THE HEALING OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD BE WITH YOU!!! NO NEGATIVE REPERCUTIONS.

    Hi Darby, my wisdom ‘went’ sometime during my mid twenties…my best friend was with me to take me home after surgery – when I woke up both her and the nurse where laughing…and I could tell that I had just said whatever made them laugh to tears…my dear friend never would fess up as to what I had said even though I kept asking her through out the years – my recovery was pretty uneventful & quick – I will pray the same for you – now I must wait till I get to heaven & hopefully then I will find out what ‘wisdomless’ comment I made back in the day…..lol

    I hope your procedure went well and that you’re sleeping away the medications now! I had mine out probably 20 years ago and the fear of the procedure was much worse than the procedure itself or the recovery so I’m hoping you’ll be the same!

    Hope all goes well with your surgery. Two of my teens had them out last yr and neither one ever took any pain medicine. I am sure that you will do great, too.

    I would like your opinion about your black countertop. We are getting ready to put in granite and I am looking at black and another lighter color. Does everything show on the black? Would you recommend it with five kids? Our inherited counters have hunter green and as soon as I wipe them they look dirty and show everything. Thanks so much! Love all your photos and your little kiddos. We are in the Huntsville area of AL, used to live near Destin.

    Hope your surgery went well this morning and that you’re getting LOTS of frozen treats and help around the house! Been praying for you to have a quick recovery and very wet sockets! I had all 4 of mine out last year and I had 2 dry sockets and several ulcers in my mouth and back of my throat. Very painful. Praying you get through this as pain free as possible!

    LOVE the pics, especially little Rovers hiney and ‘dunlap’. I have 2 boys, one of which goes to the same school as your girls. Paige and my son are the same age, but in different classes there. Love reading your blog; Very encouraging and extremely funny!

    Praying that you are doing well! Every time I go to the dentist, they tell me I should get mine taken out, and I just nod and pretend like I’m going to soon. I really have no plans to because I’m too scared! I hope you recover quickly and that your rovers are easy on you!

    first, i have been laughing out loud at one of the comments left above about her husband asking his mom to “scratch his you-know-whats.” that is the funniest thing i’ve heard all day.

    second. i had my wisdom teeth out over Christmas break my freshman year of college. i had dry sockets and like it’s mentioned over and over, i wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. child birth wasn’t as bad in my case. the stuff they used to pack the dry sockets tasted like pine trees smell. needless to say, Christmas dinner wasn’t that great that year and everything tasted like i had been licking a spoonful of sap.

    third. my one piece of advice, which i haven’t seen listed here. use an old pair of pantyhose (or if you’re like me and haven’t worn pantyhose since my wedding day, go buy a cheapie pair). put the ice bag in the crotch (sorry for the visual) and tie the legs around your head. you won’t lose the ice pack while you sleep and are knocked out, but you’ll get the benefit of keeping the ice pack on your face constantly. plus, it might make for a great photo opp (along with your capri yoga pants and knee socks).

    wishing you prayers and comfort as you recover.

    I hope your proceedure went well!!! I will say that preschool teachers to have plenty of funny stories to tell…my husband is one so we get good ones daily! I agree with you on the twin thing? I often wondered why if we were twins then why wasn’t I getting my wisdom teeth out at the same time too! (My twin sister got hers out a year before me.) Hugs and feel better soon πŸ™‚

    @Kelsey – hoping you reading the comments after yours, since Darby probably won’t be in a position to post anytime soon…John Martin is Darby’s youngest, and only boy, child. There is one post in the archives somewhere where she said He is such a rover…and it stuck as a nickname.

    If you have ever been around a boy toddler, then you can imagine what a rover is! πŸ˜‰ And as you can see by the first of the post, apparently she is calling us, her blog stalkers, rovers now too! Which, honestly, if you were to see my house…probably fits me!

    good luck! I’m sure everything will go fine. I had mine done when I was 17. The anesthesia is the only tricky part:)

    Well I read this a couple days late but I hope all went well! I have to have mine removed as well and am totally putting it off! That picture of the kids with brooms and swiffers is pretty cute!

    Apparently after I got my wisdom teeth out i flicked off the nurse because I was angry that she estimated my weight at 125 pounds..WOW. I would NEVER do that sanely. I was also screaming for my 17 year old brother, and thought I had toilet paper sticking to my shoe. My mom told me later that the faculty said I was their most interesting patient in 4 years. THanks. And my brother and sister filmed me at home where I apparently admitted for the first time I was in love with a guy named Jacob…who is NOW my husband. Haha. Very special times. But I feel your pain!
