I never did go to sleep last night. It has in some of the most intense pain I have ever been in so I couldn't sleep at all. So this morning was my youngest sons graduation. In pain and with nothing to take for it I went armed with my camera. It was awesome despite the pain and I got to hear my son speaking on the microphone. The boy was great and that's not just from a dad's perspective. He has a voice and is not afraid to be vocal and show emotion in the way he talks! I was more that proud if that is possible!
When we got home I planned to lay down and take a nap. the key word was planned. I laid back there for almost 2 hours and the pain got worse than before. So I got up and called the doctors office. Turns out the no longer take my insurance. So from there is was time to play phone tag with my insurance company to help me find a new primary care physician. Finally after almost 30 minutes they found me one. Only one problem I cant go to them until June first. Fat lot of good that does me for the current problem.
So I sad the heck with it and went to the ER. Turns out after 2 hours there that I have an extremely bad infection stemming off of bad teeth. Its bad enough that the doctor said "If you don't get the teeth out soon, they are going to kill you." So I got a strong antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory, and a groovy pain killer. But wait the fun didnt end there!!
I walk out of the ER to find that my wife had locked the keys in the car. So I am stuck sitting in the parking lot with a paper prescription, a face full of pain, and a locked car. My wife calls her mother who has a set of my keys. She in turn sends my sister in law who gets lost on the way. I was about in tears before she arrived.
Finally I am home and have taken my meds. I learned something... Painkillers and no sleep in 30+ hours intensifies the effect of pain killers tri-fold. I am soooo loopy that I think I might even find that evil purple dinosaur barney entertaining. Yep that means its bed time. Night all!
*Update - well they worked lat night but now I am in every bit as much pain while on the stuff so I am back to being miserable.
