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.
