Checking In

Published March 1, 2016 by lynn k scott

Since quarter to four on a still dark morning, and I have been awake since 2:30, why not check in with everyone?

I do have to get up for work in a couple hours, but I will be going in a bit late.  Need to stop off at the dentist for an emergency visit.  Seems my chipped tooth has created quite the infection.  Yesterday I could have been auditioning for a squirrel gathering nuts in its cheek. 

My face was so swollen, I looked deformed and my coworkers felt bad for me.  I can’t say enough for the two little capsules of penicillin I found while searching my medicine for something to relieve the pain. 

I know, I know, shouldn’t take left over meds, could cause the antibiotics not to work in the future.  Desperate times, my friends.  At least my cheek is now a bit swollen, I was able to sleep without an ice pack on and off my face all night and the pain has been greatly reduced. 

I still hate the dentist, but at least now this problem has a resolution in sight.  More antibiotics should be forthcoming, then we can crown or pull this tooth.

There is a bright side.  Since I had to wait for an appointment, got to love managed dental care, the liquid diet has helped me shed a few pounds.  Gotta look for the positive, right?

I will be back to writing more soon.  Just wanted to check in since I was able to have a coherent thought.

    • I finally see an oral surgeon this week to have the broken tooth removed. My wisdom tooth fell out on its own (yea). Am feeling better now the infection is gone, thank you. Glad you are enjoying the recipes. I need to post some more. Perhaps, I should head the laptop and check in again…I have been slacking. 🙂

  • I was in a similar situation recently…it took several months for the doctor/dentist to realize the antibiotics weren’t working by themselves, and recommend a root canal…so not fun in my view, but so much better than suffering further! Good luck with your procedure and healing!!
