I had a lousy day today in terms of my recovery.
I woke up today in so much pain. It felt so tight around the affected area and it hurt to even put a finger on my upper lip. It feels swollen up to my nose!
Luckily today was my follow up appointment with the dentist. He had his tools all lined up on a tray and after one glance at them I said, “NONONONONO. None of that is touching me today. It’s so painful…”
“Ok, let me check very gently…” He started coming towards me.
I jerked away. “No it’s ok, I show you. Don’t touch ok! Very painful!” I lifted up my lip for him to see the teeth and gum.
He laughed. “Wahhh I have a very good assistant today ah? I don’t have to do anything!”
He told me I was recovering well and it’s normal to be in pain. He said just continue my medication and don’t stress the area too much.
“BUT I MISS FOOD. I MISS REAL FOOD.”
I was still on MC today, and because I was having a lot of discomfort I was looking forward to a day off. Suddenly, I got a call from my director about “that important meeting” that I completely forgot about! Aiyohhh..
Back to work, then.
I saw THIS on my table.
I wanted to laugh, but it hurt (literally and metaphorically).
So, I settled with “VERY FUNNY!!” to my colleagues who put the muruku there. I was so tempted to have one (JUST ONE!!) but I reminded myself I wanted a speedy recovery! So I shoved it back into the office pantry.
One very kind colleague came up to me, “Omg V I have to tell you something.”
Always excited, I asked “What? What?!!”
She came up to my ear to whisper.
CRUNCH!!! She ate the muruku next to my ear.
Such lovely human beings we have in the office. Haha.
