Went to my follow up today. It’s kind of scary but stitches are out, and now it is time to heal. Other medication were prescribed for infection. I have to keep wounds clean and shouldn’t be a problem says the doctor.

Already fasting for tomorrow morning and getting a headache. I can only have water after finishing my dinner until the next few days. Just hoping for stable results to follow through with the rest.

anxious O_o

Well the day has finally come. I passed all my exams and was cleared for surgurey next week. I have been dreading this moment but now it looks as if it’s written in black and white in the appointment book. I am nervous yet excited to know that after this I don’t have to worry any more and can rest easier.

whatever happens O_o

have returned from getting drilled, since i had a little extra time to spare i had a third filling refilled. i was shot up with some novocain and it won’t wear off for the next two hours, doctor said. in the mean time it is making me feel loopy, it kind of funny and keep laughing at every little thing. still feeling the sinus pressure, i have taken medicine but can’t right now because of the novocain and am afraid it will mix and mess me up. i was also told i couldn’t eat for two hours so the fillings can settle in. toodles. hahahahah

O_o

my schedule was filled with things to do today. class was cancelled today, headed home really quick to grab my file(s), paperwork and backpack to carry them in. took off to work early and when i arrived people were caught off guard and surprised to see me there ready to work early. i thought it would be nothing since i was going to be out to see the doctor. i had many files that i had to finish up before my other coworkers arrived back to the office from a three day conference. i was able to finish all the work before i had to take off. once i finished i began talking with the older coworkers because they got into a discussion about movies and let them know they could see them online. they were surprised such a thing existed. it was funny to see there mind being evolved from old to new. after that i took off to go see the doctor, they numbed the area they were going to work on and hours later i had my filling refilled. i was in a short amount of pain but the difficult part was being told not to eat or drink anything for two hours, the tooth needed to be sealed and would take some time to fully heal and not to mention i was still numb, it just went away a few moments ago and i was finally able to have some grilled chicken fajitas and water because no more sweet stuff for a while because of how sensitive my tooth is. i am in still a bit of discomfort but nothing i can’t handle. i have got another busy schedule tomorrow. i hope all had a way better day. good night and dream happy dreams.

necesidad O_o

today was a waiting day. made it to the dentist office and signed in and filled in the proper paper needed to begin, waited and waited in the office, finally was called in and got my consultation. i explained what was happening and if what was causing the problem due to the fact that my wisdom teeth are slowly making there way in. i get a small migrane to headache every once in a while when they begin to slowly make there way up. i can deal with he pain but i want to do something about it now since it is getting a little annoying. i pop in a painkiller and it helps relieve the pain but the side effect is that everyone keeps judging and keeps telling me that i am going to get addicted to them. i know better. got the x-ray done and all the other things that come with it. since it was getting late i just wanted to grab a bite to eat since i had skipped breakfast. now i just have to wait and see what happens. the doctor said if the pain gets really bad that they will operate as soon as possible and pull all four wisdom teeth out. that was the highlight of my day; what have you done today?

waiting O_o

today was strange, woke up to a crazy dream, was able to see in thermal imaging. as if i had bionic eyes. it was weird and also strange. as the day carried on my mom got a phone call, it was my dad. she could hear something was wrong in his voice right away. i have that gift too, being observant helps too. i was outside trying to tire out tumbler so he could sleep better at night. when i came inside my mom told me what happened, i fed tumbler really fast and jumped in the car and drove to the rescue. i know i have no medical skills or a phd, but i know how to take care of the issue at hand (pun intended.) after thirty years not one time has this happened. normally in a situation like this their woud be panic, and forgot to mention my mother was with me. she gets queazy about the situation when blood is involved. i am perfectly okay with it and have no negative reaction to the sign of blood. i did everything i could to stay alert, assertive and collected, even though i was scared out of my life to find out what happened, i had to imagine what happen and play it in my head as if it were showed on a video. everything is fine for now, on the way there and while helping, i kept seeing worse case scenarios. i know not all of them could happen, but i had to slow down my heart rate so my dad wouldn’t see the scared look in my eye. the injuries weren’t severe but they were still their. i was able to do what i had to do to my dads hand before or maybe possible later injury. i could be quite a healer under pressure, i have seen some people crack, it isn’t a good thing. i am just glad everything is okay, not sure what will happen tomorrow, i have to help out my dad, it will be tough but he can handle pain, it may have been the adrenaline but he stayed calm through it all, even when i had press, move, rotate the injured area. it seems that so far these past two days have been about something important, i now see that. what we discussed yesterday came true; in it’s own way. i hope you get well soon. it was hard to take the strange felling in my throat and make it go away. sort of felt like someone was trying to strangle me, i had to push my way through but got to the other side.

get well soon O_o

today was like any other day, sun blaring, birds chirping, no clouds, windy, and above all spending it with my dad. arrived at a doctors house near the mall, it was fun driving down a steep hill, so much momentum. lol the doctor had set up the job with my dad last week and finally told us what he wanted, we had to construct a custum patio overhang (roof) with skylights and tin sheets. it took us most of the day but we got it done. it turned out the homeowner was a doctor who worked for the department of infectious diseases here in town. he was a top research developer and chemist that he was on a team looking for a cure for breast cancer. i am familiar with that situation because of someone really close to me and my family. i saw the hell she had to go through but is a survivor and has been well. she does so much for us, it is quite amazing. i do hope they do find a cure one day for it, after seeing what she had to go through, it must be hard for all the other women and men out there that do have to go through it. to this day, i am a huge supporter for the fight of breast cancer and live strong campaign. hope you are too. after a while my dad asked him a few questions and i walked in to the conversation and the doctor said they maybe was a slight chance for a cure, maybe within the next few years. with today technological advances anything is possible. well to tired to write anymore, it is time for bed but have a good night and a better tomorrow.

when I opened my eyes I knew what two things had to happen, had to visit my opthamologist  and go to work. got ready, and headed out, the doctor wasn’t in yet, had to wait for him to arrive, so I waited & Waited & WAITED. finally he arrived two hours later and was already noon, I want his job, sleep in work from noon to five and bank salary. so I did, applied to work there in the afternoon after going to summer school, my pair of scrubs wont suffice and will need several more. yippee! after leaving headed to work, had a doctors note which meant I couldn’t get in trouble or yelled at, the power was AWESOME!!! but got off the high horse when I saw the task at hand. work went on, got pretty beat up today, got a deep cut on my middle finger, a laceration on my arm (over dramatic), a cut on my thumb and scrapes all over my legs. I was there but not my mind, my mind was wondering about school and above all, other important things. we could have kept going but had to stop because daylight was over. here now in recovery mode. in conclusion, how was your day?

woke up in excruciating stomach pains a few hours ago, as if someone had drilled a hole in my stomach and knotted all my insides up. got up and got some water and went back to sleep it off, I just woke up and it was about 2 o’clock and slowly the pain is still lingering, not sure what is wrong with me? has anyone had that feeling before? does anyone know what it is?? should I get a consult???

trying to be productive O_o

made the decision yesterday that I really needed to get my eyes checked out and start worrying about my well being. I made a few calls this morning and started doing some research on other things I need to do, will be going under on June 15 for some test, I know I will need some work done, have dreaded this and have left it alone for quite a few years, It Is Time! first thing is first, getting my eyes checked, have been running around all of town with my little brother driving me around checking who has the best price for a contact exam, because it turns out it is cheaper and more reliable for me to get contacts and later on get a pair of glasses.

arrived at my first destination where I went sporadically went the other day just to get some info and start my research for finding the best place but was an epic failure, I did not pay close attention to the time of operations and was closed for the day. went to the store, and spent a little time there and went to another and another and another place etc, was getting frustrated and decided to use a life line and phone my parents, was given further instructions to go to a place that was near by our home, when we arrived I sort of, kind of rushed in because was told they stop taking walk-ins at 4:30 (because they closed at 5) and it was already 4:15.

filled out the paper work and continued to get checked out (vision, measurements, etc.) and sat back down in anticipation, the doctor called and got up and what felt like the longest walk of my life actually did. I was scared to know what had changed in about 6 years from my last visit of Junior year of High School. turns out there was a slight change, nothing dramatic or drastic but just enough for new prescription. which I think was okay because I needed it. while there the optometrist asked me if I would like to have my eyes dilated for further examination of my eyes, said sure, might as well and carried on with the procedure.

from that moment on, he mention to me that I wold lose vision for the next 3 hours or so, accepted the repercussions and let him continue. everything turned out to be undamaged and perfectly healthy. which was a HUGE surprise to me. “were done!” said the doctor, the technician will give you your trial pair and return for a check up and update and we will give you your 2 boxes of contacts. told him thank you and went on my way up to the front, with some help. forgot my sunglasses in the truck and had to borrow my brothers until we got to the truck (very helpful and kind but oddly strange)…

I went home and could not see, even if my life depended on it, I saw everything fuzzy and unclear with the bright sun blaring down on my eyes, felt very venerable. got home and stayed in the dark trying to recover, doing that helped a bit but got a headache and felt a little like light torture. some time passed and vision came back but pupils were still HUGE, had to continue to wear my sunglasses everywhere and it was funny. joined my aunt to the store without my sunglasses and didn’t know that my eyes were still black as night (hahahahaha) after this long of recovering.

when I arrived home my eyes are slowly being unblack and turning back to their original light brown color. I am here now writing this wearing my sunglasses because the headache is back and need to let my eyes rest from light. in conclusion, going to a professional is not always a bad and scary thing, I know we all expect to hear the worst but at most times it is a good to hear good news (medically speaking). that was my adventure for the day, how was your day?!

good things happening O_o

I am finally taking off your saddle and changing your shoes. I put this off and you have been acting slightly poorly and whiny but today the doctor is in and it is time I figured out your diagnosis.
