Good evening! You may have noticed I've been silent lately. I've been a bit under the weather. I spoke too soon about my dental recovery. After a total of 11 re-fillings and two extractions, I came down with a painful condition called dry socket, followed by an infection in my jaw, both top and bottom. The first antibiotic they gave me did not work. Now, I am on a stronger one. Once it (hopefully) clears up, I will need a root canal. The fun never ends! A side note: In case you are wondering why my teeth are so wretched, I can assure you it has less to do with my British ancestry 😉 and more to do with having poor nutrition when I was young and my mother never taking me to the dentist as a child. 😔 Clearly, I was not born into any sort of privilege, but we've all had our crosses to bear, haven't we? As C. S. Lewis said, "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." 🙂
That said, I have been having a hard time keeping up on top of things. At the moment, I am taking it easy and just plugging away on the STAR website until this new antibiotic kicks in and I start to feel better.
I'll say, I'd probably get a lot more done if I had a prescription for these Victorian cocaine tooth drops, as they were an "instantaneous cure." 😂
