Down, but not for the count

ACK, I discovered that one of my arms is still vibrant pink from the baby shots, no wonder it’s still so tender.  The other arm is fine.   If it is still pink tomorrow I will take a pic and send it to Mayo, maybe I got an infection or something in my arm.


Today was 1st redo root canal.  It wasn’t as bad as a fresh root canal, but I think since all the endodontics guy did was root canals he is probably really good at them.  He did discover a 4th root that was missed initially back in Vegas (Vegas sucks) when I first had the root canal done.  So, my cheap root canal cost 599 when it was done, and 2300 20ish years later, at least now I have insurance thanks to Teresa.  Anyhow, the procedure took about an hour and a half, he had to grind down the crown to get to the stuffing they put in 20ish years ago.  Then he had to dig that all out.  Then he had to suck out the infection.  The do the 4th root, root canal.  Then repack them all with new stuff and seal it off.  Yeah, a lot was done in an hour and a half.  I liked Dr Hemsuth DDS, he is a real nice guy and he gives really nice shots.  Wish he could pull my tooth, but he only does root canals.

Oh yeah, didn’t mention this, #15 is on the way out.  I have to wait till August 21st to get it done though, and that kind of sucks.  But it was the first appointment the Oral Surgeons, PC had open.  My regular dentist looked at the x-rays again and decided she couldn’t or shouldn’t do it.  So off to an Oral Surgeon.  All the while I have infection above that tooth.  Just hope it doesn’t decide to abscess, that would be a whole nother can on suckage.


Got bad news yesterday.  Don’t want to share it.  Just leave it as I am gonna be going to Mayo a lot more often in the near future and have to have blood tests weekly.  Take that to mean whatever you want it to mean.


CPAP is still giving me hours of good sleep.  My Benign Enlarged Prostrate wins though.  I still wake up at least 3 time a night to pee.  At least that is down from 6.  Just wish they had a size between medium and large on the cushions (masks).  But hey, it is working, so I shouldn’t complain too much.


I was glad I chose not to go to Mayhem last night, the bad news hit right about the time I would have been leaving and I wouldn’t have went anyway.


And with the extra trips to Mayo, I will NOT be able to play on Friday nights.  So blah.  This sucks.


There is either a UPS delay or a Lou Malanati’s delay.  But whoever has the delay is causing our pizzas to not arrive today.   Which is a bummer, but not the end of the world.  We weren’t planning on eating one tonight, so tomorrow will be fine, I think.


My knee feels better today.  Yesterday it hurt like mad.  Today is just normal achy cuz I have walked a bit.  And walking makes my knee hurt.  Welcome to getting old.  But like I said today it feels a lot better than yesterday.  Today I will do my exercises.  Just later, maybe after a nap.


I am angry.  I am scared.  I am anxious.  I am worried.  I am a whole lot of emotions right now.  None of them happy.  I will do my best to fake it for my friends.  Tuesday night is first night I have to be happy Aravas can’t run with an upset DM.  So, I will do my best to either get happy (not likely) or fake happy.  Either way it’ll be all good.


ANd because I am a dirty old man,
