I got discharged today after staying a night at NUH. Surgery can be so freaky.
Let's see a quick assessment of my current condition is 4 wisdom tooths are out, slight swelling on the right cheek, a very numb right lower lip, chaffed side lips, lots of pressure on my right jaw.

Doesn't sound too good. I hope this will all get better with sleep. I discovered ulcers on my lips but I dun really feel much pain from them, perhaps coz my lower lips are numb.. sucks, I can't even feel my food with my lower lip. Porridge can jus drip out without me knowing (and yes, it has happened). Well, doc says this is a possible side effect of the surgery when they bruise or damage the nerve. It should be temporal, though rarely is it permanent. Nonetheless, it's still worrying.

I tried not taking my painkillers from the afternoon. but by the evening, there was so much pressure and discomfort in my jaw, that I don't think I can sleep without those painies... so I'm on ibuprofen and paracetemol. Yes, 2 different types of painkillers.. dun ask why, I can't figure either.

My stay at the hospital was a time when I had spent more time doing my quiet time. Last night was jus a psalms night. I started with Psalm 6, followed by the other psalms that speaks of the fear of God, God's grace and forgiveness and Glod's glory declared by the heavens. It was quite a time really. Amazing to take time and notice that every creation and every aspect of nature speaks of a master designer. Just as how a piano could never have formed itself out of mere coincidences over millions of years, how much more a complex plant, ecosystem, animals, the galaxy or even us humans. All of this speaks of intelligent design, purposeful design and leaves a pattern that reveals to us that God is the master designer and creator of all things. We could not have been a result of atoms knocking into coincidence. That's a thought to ponder about the next time we're hit by a breeze, can u imagine, it is God who sets every single wind current on its course?

Tomorrow morning I'm hitting Kenridge hanging bridge, have not much idea about the place but am going with my aunt and cousin. Will be bring the camera along, I hope to be able to get some nice pictures back.
