Greetings from “Toothless.” After I posted yesterday, the numbness of the shots wore off and I dove into the prescribed pain medication (PPM) rather quickly. The part of me that hurts the most is the chipmunk cheek. Last night, after several cold packs, the swelling went down, but this morning, it was rather large again. Again, let me assert I am not vain… but rather the chipmunk cheek made it very, very painful to smile or talk — two things I must be able to do to perform my job.

So, this morning, though I cannot afford to take a day off, I called my sub and I took more PPM and have been sleeping most of the day. I have had some rather strange dreams on the PPM and the ceiling fan base appears to be moving, too, so it is moving opposite the fan blades and makes me rather dizzy. I haven’t watched any TV yet, but there is a marathon of Ferris Buhler’s Day Off on TNN. I would watch, but most of Shae’s Day Off has been one long nap.

Speaking of naps, it’s about medication time, so I will be taking more soon and sleeping the night away!

Good night…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!
