Take away my credit card!!

I am home alone today and I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday so I am stuck in bed with my Vicodin. Someone needs to take my credit and debit cards away from me, this could get dangerous!! I love to online shop, especially at theanimalrescuesite.com!!

Now if only I could eat solids...

Eat mashed potatoes!

Getting my wisdom teeth out a few years ago got me obsessed with mashed potatoes. Now I still frequently eat them for breakfast. P:

And haha I know what you mean. Gotta find something to keep yourself occupied during a surgery recovery, and while on vicodin, everything seems like a good idea! Perhaps look into playing some video games if you're into that? My hip surgery recovery was my best raiding month in WoW ever!

That depends.

My orthpaedic surgeon's PA gave me straight vicodin (no tylenol) just in case I wanted to have a drink. It's the tylenol(acetaminophen) and alcohol combo that destroys your liver.

After massive shoulder surgery I did wash down my vicodin with rum drinks for quite a few weeks. When they dropped me down to darvocet drinking was a no-no. My primary Doc ran liver tests when I was done and I was fine.

These are the risks we run in a state w/o Medical Marijuana.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

It's not just the liver damage that's a concern, it's also breathing. Both vicodin and alcohol slow your respiration so taking them together runs the risk of stopping it completely. It doesn't always happen as different people react to different drugs and drug combos differently, but it definitely can.

Personally it's a risk I'd never take and I'm very surprised you had a doctor say it was perfectly fine. I was warned not to take vicodin with alcohol every time I've been on it, and it says it right there on the label, and a quick internet search yields pretty much the same, including a number of instances where someone took the risk anyway and went into respiratory arrest.

Don't worry everyone, I am not drinking with my vicodin!! I don't really drink much even when I'm not on it.
Marie, Don't worry, I didn't go broke.
Saitenyo, my mom made me homemade mashed potatoes last night, soooo good. Living across the street from her is the best!

It's not just the online shopping that's a risk, it's getting more cats! When I got my wisdom teeth pulled I ended up with 2 cats not long after.

But that's a GOOD problem!

I hope you recover quickly - the pain goes away soon but dealing with the holes where your teeth were is a pain for months 'cause you get stuff stuck in them!

Homemade banana pudding? especially the kind with cream cheese mixed in

I'm about to go collar shopping myself. I found a website a while back ago that makes custom collars, and now that Simone & Pumpkin are bigger I can finally order them some

I shouldn't encourage you, but there's nothing wrong with looking right?!
