Starting to feel very glad that the doctor gave me Thursday and Friday off. The headaches are starting to get worse and my gums are so swollen they feel like they're embossed around my teeth. For some odd reason the percocet, or as most people know it; oxycontin, isn't helping with the headaches at all. Oddly, if I take some ibuprofen that helps.
Sleeping is difficult for all these reasons, but more because often when I finally dose off, I wake choking on mucus. The amount that's working through my system is astounding. I also started using the gel for burns that Colleen gave me. It smells weird, but not as bad as she warned. More like Halloween makeup. My neck doesn't look burned, but it's starting to look 'woody' as my reading said it would. The earache has subsided somewhat though.
