Lately. I haven’t been sleeping much, so I’ve had a chance to really sink my teeth into the growing collection of books and graphic novels I’ve borrowed from friends. Fret not, fellow literary lovers! Your property shall be returned to you shortly!
I’ve been cleaning up my room, brushing up on Spanish and watching Netflix all weekend in an attempt to distract myself from the pain in my jaw. Tonight, I settled on Netflix and cross-stitching. The pain isn’t so stabby anymore, it’s more of an ache, like I’ve been chewing gum for years on end. I see the dentist in the morning and hopefully get it pulled/filled/drilled–whatever needs to happen to make it better!
In an effort to eleviate some of my tooth pain, I have been making a slew of weird faces. Some times it works, some times it doesn’t. Sushi has been sticking close; I’d like to think it’s because she knows I don’t feel good and wants to comfort me, but I really think it’s because she loves air conditioning.
Get it? Like two-thirty but EXCRUCIATING. I’ve never had a toothache before and I am not one to half-ass things, so I went all out with shooting pain throughout the right side of my jaw, stabbing pains below my ear and a throbbing below my right eye. I’m also coming up on 28 hours without sleep. The urgent care doc says she doesn’t feel an abcess, gave me antibiotics, super strength ibuprofen and told me to ice it. I see the dentist Monday and hopefully he will yank the offending tooth out of my head and I can carry on with my life.
After a long day and a fun night out, few things are better than coming home to loves from Sushi. I love walking in the door and watching her tail shake so fast her whole rump starts swaying. The best is when I wake her up and she fights so hard to keep her eyes open, but she doesn’t have the where-with-all to do anything more than fidget in place with excitement at my return.
