I started waking up a few days ago finally. I went to the dentist yesterday. In the process of working on my next 2 crowns, one of the teeth wouldn't numb. I didn't realize it until later, but that is usually a sign of infection. That is the jaw that had the swollen gland. And the ear that sometimes has twinges of pain. Not enough for me to put it to the tooth, since the tooth itself never really hurt. Well, I'm having so much work done lately that at least I never focused on that particular one. Anyway, I feel a lot better now, the gland is no longer sore and in general I feel like I've rejoined the human race. Not sure what all he did, I lay there with my eyes shut and don't understand the conversation between the doctor and his assistant. I find it easier that way. I know he said he isn't done with that tooth yet, but I have 2 temporary crowns now on that side. I think 3 more crowns after this and I will have my new mouth.
I'm headed to the Capital for just the day today. It's a government holiday so I'm taking the military bus down and back. I'll just hang out, which is something I don't feel comfortable doing here.
I'm also cleaning the apartment. There are a few things that when I'm at that point in cleaning I know I'm making progress. Like disinfecting the wastebaskets, scrubbing the shower floor with bleach, digging even deeper into corners and sorting things to get rid of. I don't know where that moving van in my dream was going, but guess I'd better get ready. Actually, I don't really want to move with the group who was just making fun of me, but when the next adventure shows up I want to be ready!
