Misery loves a mallet.

6:30 p.m.

I’m in bed.

The swelling and pain are extraordinary. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatories return scant relief or improvement. The molar and soft tissues of jaw, cheek and gums seem to be worsening by the hour. Can’t help wondering whether this has morphed from “simple” infection to abscess.

Glad now that I canceled my Friday plans. A mallet over a cards game is the better choice. Please pummel me with it. Oh please.

    I totally feel your pain. It fills your head. Monday is far from now. I hope you can make it through the weekend. Amazing how one little tooth can make so much hurt. I want to say feel better buti know this probably won’t happen until something is fixed or if they can give you some good painkillers.

      @trayflow – Whatever Monday’s treatment, findings and future procedures, they’re moves in the right direction and toward a resolution three years on hold. That’s something to smile about. 🙂
