Againt At The Dentist’s

The spot where the tooth was removed last Monday started to ache Wednesday/Thursday but I thought it was because I was starting to eat solids again and it always started after eating. But Saturday and yesterday it ached all the damn time, and then last night, it started to throb when I did some light cleaning in the bathroom because some men were coming in today to do some installations there. So I called it in today, got an appointment to check it out and good thing I did – there was an infection, the nerve endings were exposed and no sign whatsover of the blood clot that should’ve stopped that from happening D:

It was the same Dentist today who had removed it, and this time I think he directly gave me a lot more of the local anaesthesia because he only gave me one shot and still it’s just as numb as last Monday. He cleaned it out and put in some pain killer thingy that looked like foam rubber and tasted awful. He said that if the ache returns, I need to contact them again.

So now left side of my face is numb again, talking is so-and-so, eating/drinking etc. is forbidden for another hour or so – but the ache is blissfully gone! πŸ˜€

The Borgias · TV & Movie Thoughts

The Borgias

Just watched the season finale of The Borgias and… how on earth did they manage to make it boring, considering the subject matter?! The first couple of episodes were okay and seemed to promise excitement and dark things to come. But somehow, by episode four, they had diluted it πŸ™ And each episode thereafter was more boring than the one before. Almost didn’t make it through episode 9. Sometimes it felt they were actually making a comedy but that never lasted for more than a scene and then it was back to half-hearted intrigue. And Cesare? He should be a really interesting character, but instead he’s a total yawn fest – and swings around from one characterization to another and yet another depending on what the plot requires of him. Ugh.

I hear there will be a second season. At this point, the costuming is pretty much the only reason to tune in.

Mom + Fansites + Internet Connection

Mom’s operation went well and she got back home yesterday as planned. So far she hasn’t had much pain, and she’s feeling alright. The arm pit things were clean and they didn’t have to remove any of them so that’s awesome πŸ˜€ but there are other biopsies that we’ll get the results of three weeks from now before we know for sure whether it had spread or not. But so far so good and we’re taking it one step at a time πŸ™‚ But I am very relieved πŸ˜€

In other news…

A couple of weeks ago, I adopted a fansite for Game Of Thrones, the HBO tv series. Didn’t announce it until Gertie bought a domain for it: Game Of Thrones Fan. Game Of Thrones is currently the tv series I most look forward to each week πŸ˜€

Also, it took a few days, but Gertie finally renewed the domain so the site is back and working again!

I’ve ordered a dedicated ADSL to my appartment because my current one, which is a free one offered by my appartment building, has slowed down unbearably. The new ADSL should be installed on June 7, and it all should happen in such a way that I don’t loose internet accessibility at any point, I’ll believe it when I see it. So I might disappear for a bit if something goes wrong with it.

Tooth Removal

I had the dentist’s appointment today, and he didn’t even try to convince me to have root canal instead of removing the tooth πŸ˜€ So the first of the two teeth is out now πŸ™‚ Took 55 minutes (which is interesting, because a friend of mine had her wisdom teeth removed, 2 of them at one time, and she said it took like 10 minutes.

The dentist said my bone is so strong, that it doesn’t want to give up the teeth. The teeth broke, and he spent like half an hour removing the bit that was left.

At first it was a little uncomfortable, but he gave me so much local anaesthetic that once it really took hold, I didn’t feel much of anything but tugging/pushing/pulling and heard the drilling. It’s still on, but I wonder how much it’ll hurt after the anaesthetic ends.

The second teet will be removed in July, and this time is a 6o minute appoitment πŸ™‚

I had all my wisdom tooth removed over 20 years ago when I was a teenager; I can’t remember if it was as hard work then as it was now. I had 4 of them; they took two onΒ  one time and the other two on another.
