It never ceases to amaze me how much trouble you can get from one little bitty tooth.

Last weekend I got a really nasty toothache and wound up having to find a dentist on Sunday.  Apparently this is possible though not easy - there's something called the Western Dental Society which has a number you can call that recites a list of dentists on call for the weekend. Found one, who drained the tooth and gave me some prescriptions, then I went to my own dentist Monday, who sent me to a root canal specialist, who gave me some antibiotics and saw me again on Friday. The infection was not quite gone yet, so he sent me back and I go in again Wednesday. Meanwhile, between the tooth itself (a back molar) and the mauling my jaw gets every time a dentist does much that far back in my mouth, it's been kinda painful. Sigh... this too shall pass I suppose, but I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't have just had them pull the wretched thing... :(

Leastwise this has allowed me time to sit around and read, and I'm about finished with the fourth Temeraire book. Most enjoyable. I do hope the author keeps this up for awhile.

Thanks for the offer - I'll let you know if I need it! I probably won't get back to trying until after CaliFur - between preparations for that and this condemned tooth I'm a bit busy at the moment.

Update - after making that post I decided to go check and still couldn't get in. So, it having been over a year anyway iirc, I just went ahead and took out a new paid membership via PayPal. Now to see if anyone notices and sends me a password... :/

And lo and behold, I just got my invite, have started my new journal, and all looks good.

Mind you I'm likely to hang around in here as well.

Sorry to hear of your pain... Hope you are better soon!

Otherwise, my husband loves her books as well. I keep forgetting to sign him up for the newsletters. I should go do that now. ;-P

I'm feeling a lot better today. Which I hope means I can get my background CD track laid down tomorrow for the song I'm doing at CaliFur, because Wednesday I get to go back and have the actual root canal finished and the Eternal only knows how I'll feel the next few days after that... I gather it's kinda icky in there. Prayers would be appreciated. :)
