Urgent Care

For the past week I've had a pain in my left cheek, just above the gum line all the way to my lower eyelid. I have been ignoring it and hoping it would go away. But last night it really interfered with my sleep. I called Guthrie and asked to see my doctor next week. But during the day the pain get bad enough that I just couldn't stand it anymore and dropped into the Cayuga Medical Urgent Care center just down the street from me. The RN on call decided it was an abscessed tooth and gave me some antibiotics.

The people at the Urgent Care center were really nice to me. Although there seems to be some problem with my Medicaid that I need to get looked at.

I had to go down to Wegmans to pick up the meds so I got to wear my candle hat, and it was after sunset so my hat was at its best. I got a few compliments and smiles.

Last night was the first night with my new Bi-PAP machine. It's a nice machine. It has a much more informative display. It tells me how long I slept, and how often I was interrupted, and how good the seal on the nose piece was. The headpiece has a different design, the tube runs straight over my head instead off to the side. Which means I can't really face plant into the pillow like I'm used to.
