Crappy summer continues.
Had to bail on the party Saturday night due to pain….and slept until 1:00 on Sunday, missing both the first Chess Match rehearsal (which I’m particularly bugged by — I don’t miss rehearsals) and teaching my Sunday classes at the KCRF Academy (which I’ll be making up tonight).
Tried the neti that we received from
However, that only takes care of half the problem. As I mentioned to some of you, the sinus issue was involved in a lovely little bit of co-exacerbation with the sorry state of my teeth — one badly-cavitied molar in particular. The sinus pain increased the pressure on that tooth, which also became inflamed, increasing pressure on the sinus, etc. Ouch City, population: Me.
Yesterday when I awoke, it was so bad that I actually had visual swelling. Not good. The swelling went away throughout the day, which most likely means that the lack of sinus problems gave the tooth inflammation the space it needed to calm down, and any burgeoning abcess (ew) the ability to drain.
I called the dentist this morning to have the thing yanked. It’s too far gone for a root canal — which is fine by me, because of the difference of about a thousand dollars in price. The problem, unfortunately, is that the dentist’s earliest appointment isn’t until the 15th.
So, I’ve got to keep on top of things, and hang in there for about 2 more weeks.
