I was up early so I could call the dentist 1st thing, and made an appointment for 8:40 am. I then called the chiropractor's office and reset that appointment to Wednesday afternoon. I hope I will be feeling fine for my art class.
I didn't take the valium and was fine except that I keep clenching my hands. It's much harder to relax them and keep them relaxed. This dentist makes sure there is no pain and I didn't feel any at all. I came home and crawled right back in bed, fully clothed, but the pain woke me up when the anesthetic wore off. I got up starving! I love my mornings and eat and snack until just after lunch - so if I miss breakfast and mid-morning snacks then I am likely to skip supper as well. I drank a protein shake and ate half a sandwich (carefully) and feel a lot better. I also got a small ladder to search the back of the upper kitchen cabinets, and found a bottle with 6 or 7 ibuprofen tablets. I've taken two so far and that will likely be it for today. I don't expect anything but maybe discomfort after that. When the Dr. was trying to get the molar out, it broke into several sections so he had to get one root at a time. My heart sunk when I heard that, but there was nothing to it really.
The forecast for Sac calls for two days in the upper 70's, two in the upper 80's, and then back into the 90's. I haven't looked at the 15 day forecast yet, but I hope we've left the worst of summer behind. I dressed for the weather before leaving for the dentist office this morning, and now in the middle of the afternoon I had to change back. My desktop widget is showing 70 right now, and is on its way up! I'm so ready for a crisp fall day, say in the 50's or 60's.
All I've wanted to do today is sleep. And when I wake up I'm as hungry as a bear, but my menu is a bit limited today. At least all the pain is gone!
