Sharp as a marble
First let me backtrack a little. On September 18th I had a root canal done (from which I am still having jaw pain). Yesterday I went to my regular dentist to have a crown put on. I'm not sure of the problems that he ran into, but he ended up having my mouth propped open for around 3 hours. He had to prop it open because I couldn't keep it open myself. The pain was excruciating. I was in misery when I left and not really fit company to be around. I was kinda glad that DKW had plans to be out and about with her mom. I didn't want to be snarky with her. Once I got home I took one of the pain pills I had been given. I felt kinda weird. I was hungry (it was after 6 PM and I last ate at noon) but I didn't want to eat because of the pain. I did go ahead and cook up a chicken/mixed fruit salad that I made sure was in bite-sized pieces since I couldn't open my mouth very wide. I ended up taking another pain pill and going to bed around 9. This is early for me but I didn't feel well. DKW woke me when she came in but she understood that I wasn't lucid enough to talk - because of being asleep and the pain pill. We did talk a bit this morning as I left for work, but I know I was still forgetting stuff. As I said though, I'm getting better (lucidity-wise). The jaw is still a problem though.
MSU plays at Kentucky this weekend and is favored by 15. Starkville High is favored over Ridgeland here on Friday. SHS won last Friday (23-6) over Provine and MSU had a bye-week. I'm hoping for good news for both this week.
Everyone have a great day!
