painkillers and bubblebaths

lover is helping me take a bath so I don’t drown

he is just perfect

it is the rose bath bubbleroon thing with coconut oil in the middle by lush so my bath water is all pink

I am blogging from the tub

they couldn’t do the surgery today because my gums were too infected around the devil teeth

but they scraped the infection clean

it hurt so bad

I sobbed and I sobbed and all I could say was

it hurts so bad

for an hour

despite a double dose of hydrocodone

so that is how I spent my Valentine’s Day

I was also allergic to the first antibiotic so I got a rash and was very pink and itchy, true to the holiday

but I have taken another round of hydrocodone and I am feeling less angry about the pain and if I open my mouth just right I can sleep or think

I will miss so much work

I really hope I keep my job I was loving it so much

things I am thankful for
-my lover
-my father
-hydrocodone
-insurance
-my very nice emergency dentists
-lush bath products
-my animals
-my friends for putting up with my bitching
-everyone who has been so nice and supportive and caring on WordPress
-the lack of desire to abuse painkillers

      The dentist said it might take a week for the infection to go down (I don’t know how I will deal with a week of level 10 pain) so anytime after that hopefully. I have a scheduled consultation with an oral surgeon on Friday that I will plead to move earlier when the office opens on Monday.

      I ended up going to my parents’ home a few hours away. My dad is a surgeon and my mom is a nurse so they pulled some strings and I was seen today by a nice oral surgeon. They couldnt take the teeth out today because of a snow storm and there werent enough nurses. But I’ll have them out on Thursday morning. 🙂 And he put me on Dilaudid instead of Vicodin. And I’m taking a different antibiotic, yes. It is very nice to have my nurse mother taking care of me!!

      Dilaudid is reeeeeally strong. No complaints here, haha

        I’m glad you are being well cared for – I bet Thursday feels like it can’t come soon enough,. Hang in there
