Steam Escaping!

double bleh

the top and bottom incision on the left side of my face are infected. the oral surgeon thought this would be a risk, as the gum line was infected and inflamed already when he took out the teeth on that side. i have been on antibiotics since i got the teeth extracted, i didn't think it would be that big a deal.

however, this morning, around 3:30, i tore the stitches on the top gum line. i think it is a combination of the swelling in the gum, and me grinding or suddenly shifting my teeth somehow in the night. it feels like i i have a chunk of glass stuck in my gum. the omfs' office can't see me until 11, but they told me not to take any painkillers until then.

for the record, bloody gauze tastes like old dog shit.

happy monday all.
