This week has been full of strangeness.
On Tuesday I was eating a piece of pizza and all of a sudden my crown shattered. I looked and looked and found nothing in the pizza that could have caused it, I guess it just wore out. Of course, I can’t get into the see the dentist until the 18th. So glad it doesn’t hurt! This is the only tooth I’ve ever had a cavity in. *sigh* This crown is 12 years old, guess it’s just time for a new one. Glad it waited until I got my birthday present from my father-in-law! When I got my crown the first time it was around $600. Anyone know how much they run now? Ugh!
As you might remember, I was thinking of covering up some of my gray. On Wednesday night I decided to put henna on my hair. It was for dark brown hair, it was supposed to give my hair a nice sheen, and make the gray a light brown/blond. Like highlights. Instead, I now look like a punk rocker with orange streaks. (it might be cool if they were purple) Perhaps I’ll get a photo soon, but I look too dreadful to have a photo taken now.
Yesterday I had Lumbar Puncture #4, and it read almost exactly the same as the LP Dr. Gray did before my last patches. So they re-patched all the old spots and a couple of more. 8 all together.
I was really hoping my hearing in my left ear would improve, fast, but not yet. However, my headaches are much better. When I close my eyes I don’t see shadows rotating. I don’t know about every day disequilibrium, I’ve just been lying around for the past few days. Taking it easy, keeping my back flat. I was pretty sore at first, but it’s better. Taken just one pain pill so far today. : ) Since Thursday, I’ve just been lying around recuperating, and sleeping.
Luckily, my good friend Kym sent me the coolest “recycled” gift for my birthday. (We always try to give each other either a recycled gift, or something we made ourselves.) This year she gave me a Kindle! It wasn’t even opened. Evidently someone gave her one and she already has one. (I know she has an iPad, perhaps she doesn’t need the Kindle?) Either way, I’ve been loving it! It’s light, and the screen isn’t like a computer screen, I feel like I’m looking at a printed page. I’m having a ball exploring all the free things I can get.
Anyone else out there have one? Any tips?
