Well, today I had a good day over all. Testing started okay. I left the office in time to go to my dentist appointment. I did a little shopping after that and treated myself to really yummy food... The only bad parts of the day were hitting some traffic on my way to the dentist's office, which at 10:15 in the morning should not be happening. Then the dental hygienist kept poking and catching my gums with the instruments. She kept apologizing every time she saw me flinch, and asked me if I had sensitive teeth. Umm... No, I always flinch when someone gouges my mouth with sharp, pointy instruments. In general, I have been blessed with my father's high tolerance for pain, but this was ridiculous. My mouth throbbed for an hour afterward. That is why I treated myself to yummy food. I went to a place called Taste Unlimited. I love the food there, but it tends to be a bit pricey for every day food. However, I felt that I deserved it today. I got a portobello bistro sandwich. It had portobello mushrooms, havarti cheese, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and creamy caeser dressing all on Italian flat bread. Nom nom! I also went to my favorite health food store (Heritage) to browse. I got sesame noodles there, which I had for my dinner. I also got cherry, almond oolong tea and regular oolong tea. You can buy it in bulk there. I also got some Oil of Oregano at the suggestion of waqaychay for sinus issues. They were out of the actual oil, but I did get the capsules. I took one, and my sinuses have already opened up. Unfortunately, that means that my nose has been running almost uncontrollably for a couple of hours. Oh well, I would rather have that than have it sit in my sinus cavity, causing headaches and infections. Oh, I also got Spicy Apple Ginger Chews! I love Ginger Chews, so when I saw Spicy Apple flavor, it had to come home with me. I came home and had a nap, and have been just relaxing ever since. The best news is that I am going to have lunch with my little sister from my sorority, who I haven't seen in years. She is coming to meet me tomorrow. I can't wait to see her! She lives around here, but she usually travels with her job. She happens to be home and wants to get together. I am so happy! Yay! That's about it. Oh, my father has stopped using a walker and is using a crutch right now. He is going to switch to his cane next week. He still has the catheter, but he is still in a good mood.
