Not-so-wise wisdom tooth

Do you peeps remember that I had a minor surgery last year in April? To take out a cyst behind my neck? Here's the post.
And guess what, this year's April is just equally painful. =(
I underwent a minor operation surgery to take out my wisdom tooth. I called it the radical tooth. 'Cause it has caused me so much trouble. =(
[My ke lian face... =(]
 [My very kesian face...]
 [Pretty Indian lady dentist stitching up my gums. She's really good. =)]
 [BLOODY not-so-wise wisdom tooth]
 [My hands were shaking so badly that the camera couldn't capture my Peace sign. Haha.]
 [Killer tools *swallows hard*]
 [Can you see the stitches?]
I was really, really scared prior to the surgery. Especially knowing that my parents won't be by my side. My heart was pounding like crazy, and I couldn't really sleep well the night before. I thought of a thousand reasons just to chicken out. But somehow in the morning, after waking up, I prayed, and God gave me this sense of peace and calmness in me that I just bathed, changed and went for it. 
There was fear. Oh yes there was.
But there was even a stronger peace in me over calming the fear. 
I guess many times, all we need is a small prayer and a little faith in God. And He can change everything. =)

I totally recommend Luyang Hospital (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah) if you're having the same problem as I. Cheap and efficient. =) Just my opinion la. If you don't trust the government hospital, there's always those private blood sucking dental clinics. =) Hehe.
And I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my friends for their support, especially Jenn, Shawn and CK who were physically there with me, just to make sure I didn't pengsan, or run away. HAHA. And also to Jamie who cooked porridge for me! And my parents who constantly prayed for me. =)
Til then, take good care of your teeth so you don't have to go to the dentist so often, peeps! =)

For those who didn't return home with a medal, remember that each wrist/drag/slap shot you take, brings you closer to being champions. Keep fighting the good fight and dream big. Some day it will be yours.
