6.5 = # of hours I was in the dentist chair yesterday. Thankfully, 2 Valium and 4 sedatives, plus nitric really make it almost enjoyable : ) It's the strangest thing really. I'm awake, but asleep.

I get wheeled to the car afterwards and then sleep for hours when I get home. I pretty much slept straight through till 4 a.m. this morning. I walked the kids to school today as I don't quite feel "normal" and don't want to drive yet...but my mouth and teeth feel great!!
