I just returned from the VA Hospital. Had to draw 4 vials of blood; I was told not to eat beforehand. Afterwards, I checked into the cafeteria and enjoyed a large breakfast. ^^
Following my noms, I went to Eligibility and arranged my long-overdue oral surgery. I have at least 3 teeth that need extraction; something I've been wanting to have done for over a year now. At least one of those teeth is causing me pain and discomfort (the pain returned when I was still in Wisconsin); when I touch under my right nostril I feel it right away. They cautioned me the co-pay will be at least $500; it needs to be done regardless.
It hurt when I opened my mouth as the nurse took x-rays. I would've had the surgery today but Thursday's the day no surgeons are around. With much chagrin, I'm scheduled to return EARLY tomorrow morning (between 7 and 8am) to ensure I keep my reserved slot; all I need to do is announce my arrival. They prescribed me 600mg of Ibuprofen (to be taken once every 6 hours).
Today I wore the coat I bought in Milwaukee. I sure needed it; it was breezy this morning! :P I'll post another journal after my surgery is complete. Much hugs!! ^^
