Oh wait... two things.
The first is that I took painkillers with codeine in them. Not a fun experience... especially when I was supposed to be driving. The second is that I went to emerg with tooth pain, and promptly fell asleep while waiting.
Long story short: At the end of February I had work done... and now ONE of those teeth is possibly infected. My face is swollen and I'm taking more ibuprofen & acetaminophen than I did post-childbirth. Ick. The emerg doc prescribed antibiotics, so my fingers are now crossed that they take care of all this nonsense so I don't end up having to undergo a whack more dental work. I've never HOPED for an infection before... but when the other side might mean nerve damage and a root canal I'LL TAKE ALL THE INFECTION YOU CAN MUSTER, MR. TOOTH.
This is the bag full of ice that I held against my face while waiting in the emergency room yesterday afternoon. It smelled funny.
So now I'm poking mashed potatoes into my mouth since chewing is out of the question, and I'll be smearing my poor tooth with clove oil before bed. My face is completely swollen... just holding my mouth closed is painful and sometimes when I'm speaking I knock a bottom tooth against it and then I feel like I might faint. ICK AGAIN. I'm hoping these antibiotics start to make SOME kind of difference before I teach a seven hour private prenatal course on Sunday. Again... cross those fingers, eh?
Think happy toothy thoughts for me.
