Saturday May 8, 2021 Journal/log entry
Saturday, May 08, 2021
Weather: Cloudy, dark and dreary outside. No rain all day, but a very blah day out there. Temp about 53 degrees.
Friday's log: Friday went fairly well. I finally decided to call my dentist about my tooth ache. They couldn't take me in until Monday. It was really bothering me so I took the bus to the near by walk in clinic. It's about a ten minute ride away. I got there fine, and was checked in alright, but then the waiting starts. An hour before being seen, and then another hour waiting for the doctor to come by. Fortunately I always have my handy dandy kindle with me and did some reading even though I had a hard time concentrating.
The doctor prescribed an antibiotic, and pain killer. They couldn't pull my tooth there, but I had taken the appointment on Monday. I just wanted some relief from the pain other then taking advil all day long. The doctor also suggested an ice pack which I had never heard of for a tooth ache.
I picked up my prescriptions from the nearby pharmacy, another half hour of waiting, and came home. I left the house at 8:30, and didn't get home until almost 12:00, and that includes the bus rides so most of the time was spent in the waiting area.
Got home and took the antibiotic, and pain relief and in about an hour I had no pain. I was able to have some soup good ole fashion chicken noodle soup and crackers. Took a nap, but didn't sleep the whole afternoon away Got up and read, and was feeling a lot better.
