Okay, I rescheduled my root canal for next Wednesday. There was just no point in waiting another day to see if my congestion and cough would vanish, and I am marginally less stressed now that the appointment isn't looming over me anymore. I've had a root canal done under suboptimal conditions before (the spit-sucking tube wasn't working, so I had to swallow my own spit through the whole procedure). It was not fun. Plus, I just don't feel like giving my half-healed system any more crap right now (which is why I really tried to get more than THREE HOURS of sleep last night, but it was not to be).
I just got my first glimpse of my website statistics. They're fascinating. If I had two working brain cells right now, I'd say more, but I think I'll take a shower instead.
