Out of the Blue

So I went to Dr. Toothy on Tuesday expecting a little pain, even though it was just to install my finished crown, as I recalled this might entail this thing they do to surround the base of the tooth with what seems like string to facilitate fitting. It turned out that nothing like this was required, it was just some fitting and gluing, and I was done. On my way out, I recalled another issue from my last check up, as the dentist told me my sole remaining wisdom tooth has a giant cavity in it, and it should be pulled before this turned into a problem. They called over to the oral surgeon, and suddenly I was asked to decide if I should take an appointment just two days hence (which is today). I initially said no, as I wanted to mentally prepare for this, but when talk of scheduling after Thanksgiving came up, I realized this could easily get pushed into next year by holidays and such, and I was not going to be happy if it turned into a toothache in the meantime, so I took the appointment today. Therefore, I think it's only fair to add another possibility to the theories about my dental woes: Maybe it is bad luck, maybe it's genetics, and maybe it is Halloween candy, but in agreeing to this extraction later this morning, just two days after a completely pain-free dentist visit, it may just be that I'm a masochist.

strich, any recommendations for the sinus infection?

the first round, the doctor put me on Nasacort AQ and told me to take Clairitin and put me on something called Cefdinir. this didn't work. called back yesterday and they put me on Phenyleph. It seems to be working after only a half day. it does make me pretty woozy though, but i actually slept last night and can already tell a difference this morning. Advil cold and sinus seems to work in small spurts (4 hrs) for me as well. I couldn't take the Clairitin because it was giving me migraines. And Zicam nose spray seems to really help quite a bit too.

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
