The night is over
Pain got worse and worse. In the middle of the night my E read the information and direction for use of ibuprofen, a pain killer. He reads different parts than me. I read the side effects, that's why I didn't like to take them. He reads how often one can take them. 4 times a day for grown-up people is possible. OK, I got weak. I had taken one in the afternoon, so another one was still within the recommendation. I took one and I could sleep.
The pain was awful. The wounds pulsated. For some time the wound in the upper jaw was attacked, then in the lower jaw . Then the heart beat jumped up and down. I observed. It's a sign of healing, I thought. It was bearable, but I couldn't sleep. After the pain killer I could.
The wounds were slightly blooding all the time. I had cotton batting between the wounds. From time to time I changed it.
Today I have a really swollen cheek. I had breakfast again. Eating is difficult. For lunch I'll eat steamed vegetables. To brush my teeth is difficult, but more for psychological reasons. I fear to touch the wounds and I fear that tooth paste can get into the wounds. That's why I also eat very carefully.
After breakfast I felt exhausted again. I relaxed on the bed. Yeah, it's so much better already. Yet I feel I have to take everything easy today. My body needs the energy to heal.
In about 10 days the dentist wants to see me again to check the wounds. So I guess by then all will be fine again.
No, I don't feel like doing vinyasas or inversions. It can be that I put my body in some easy asanas. It can be that I meditate. I respect the situation of my body. the wounds are big.
