Tomorrow's the big day -- my first surgery ever. If you can call it surgery. I mean, I know they call it "oral surgery", but what is surgery, really? What differentiates it from tooth extractions I've had before -- why is this surgery, and those weren't? Is it just because it's done by an oral "surgeon"?

Anyhow -

Tomorrow's the big day. Au revior, wisdom teeth!

Budget concerns and curiousity both weighed on my mind as I thought about how I would feel comfortable having the surgery done, and I finally decided to do it sans sedatives, sans laughing gas. Just local anesthetic. Exciting!

Off to sleep now so that I'll be awake and alert enough to fully appreciate this experience tomorrow.
