We leave Tuesday, 11/23 for London for Thanksgiving, so this is probably the last post I’ll make until December 3, so I thought I’d give a brief update.
The mouth: If you follow the blog, you know that three weeks ago I went in for a root canal. Went back two weeks later to get it finished, but was still having problems. As it turns out, that molar had an extra root, so I got to get a second procedure done on the same tooth and go on antibiotics for a week. I called the dentist a week later (this past Tuesday) because I was still having issues, so he sent me to an endodontist. It turns out that not only did the original/first molar need a root canal, but the molar next to it also needed one. So now I have two unfinished root canals in my mouth waiting to finalize when I get back from London.
RA: The Simponi shot is still in effect after 10 days. I’m starting to feel a few twinges here and there, especially today as the weather is damp and cool. However, I’m hopeful that I won’t have issues in London next week because their weather promises to be even damper and cooler.
Stress Management: I need all the stress management I can manage (no pun intended). My life is overscheduled between now and Christmas and my boss just put two or three new initiatives on my desk, starting immediately. Means working all this weekend prior to leaving for London and working late/weekends after I get back, but I guess that’s why they pay me.
Happy Thanksgiving: If I don’t get a chance to update this before I leave, I wish you and yours a happy, healthy holiday with basketloads of things for which to be thankful.
Thanks for checking in.
