Swollen Face and Aching Tooth
I had to go to the dentist today for an emergency appointment. Apparently, I have an abscess. No wonder my cheek is swollen and I am smiling lop-sidedly!
It's a back tooth at the top. The pain is not "killing" me, as I havn't had to take painkillers but it is giving my family a fright seeing my face look like that.
I thought I would take a "selfie" of it to prove just how bad it was, but the camera on my tablet is not great and the picture is so grainy. it looks more like I am suffering from spottyitis than toothache. That's even despite today being a beautiful bright, sunny day, which is amazing for February.
The dentist has given me 2 different antibiotics (I haven't taken any for years and years). I asked if it would go away by itself but she looked worried and said it could make me feel very ill very quickly. OK, I don't want to end up in hospital with septicaemia! She also said not to take them on an empty stomach because they are very strong.
Not Very Hungry
I have to admit I don't feel very hungry at the minute, which is unusual for me. But my husband is making scrambled egg and we have home made vegetable soup tonight, so those should be easy enough to eat.
