Oh The Pain!

Let me tell you, I have been in the most excruciating pain since last night. I noticed last night my tongue was swelling (like it does when I take Loratab or Amoxicillin). A few hours later my jaw was hurting and my gums were burning, shortly to follow was a deep, deep pain in my left ear. I don’t remember how I fell asleep, but I know I had ice packs, Benadryl and tears! This morning the pain was worse. Doc’s office is closed on Wednesday’s, but I had emailed him last night when things started going “weird.” I called him this morning and he had a nurse see me. Apparently some food had gotten under the packing they used for the dry sockets; that on top of having some sort of allergic reaction and I was done for! Feeling much better now; but have to keep taking Benadryl as clove oil is the only thing that works on dry sockets.

I am fortunate that one of the volunteers had already asked to prepare the meet for tonight’s dinner, another wanted to help fix the dessert. Chris drove me to Sam’s and helped me get the other items needed for dinner and he is delivering them right now.

My Benadryl is making me tired, gonna hit the sack and put ice on my face:)

My sister should be checked in at the hospital. Pray for her. Her name is Michelle. They plan to induce her labor tomorrow morning.
