It takes more than minor surgery to keep down Taylor Swift
The singer – who recently had her wisdom teeth removed – has been blogging through the pain, keeping fans posted on her recovery.
"So I'm laying in bed, half asleep," she wrote Thursday
on her MySpace Celebrity
blog. And the pain? "I'm feeling it."
But Swift – who recently turned 19 with a low-key house party
– is looking on the bright side. "It's forcing me to sit still for a few days, which I probably needed."
Besides, she has something to celebrate: Her new album, Fearless
, is back atop the Billboard charts
"[When] I got my wisdom teeth taken out, [I] went into a never-ending sleep ... ," she wrote, thanking her fans for their continued support. "You gave me something really wonderful to wake up to."
