Yesterday was pretty much a wasted day---worry about the extraction in the morning, and resting after the extraction in the afternoon. I couldn't really knit because I was holding an ice pack over the extraction site. As most of you mentioned, it went fast and is actually pretty painless. It helps that my oral surgeon, Dr. Sweeney, is one of the most personable people I've ever met (a huge difference from the root canal guy). The hardest thing is that my mouth feels like there is a big hole in there (because, well, there's a big hole in there!) but I will get used to it. I keep reminding myself that no one can tell there's a tooth missing, and that is a small blessing. Now, 16 weeks of healing and then a check to see if the bone graft took, and then we start the implant process.
First, it is hard to take pictures of lace, especially dark lace. Second, this is a long scarf. So it is hard to photograph.
