I’m sorry that I haven’t written in a few weeks. First, I was battling severe headaches, along with mouth and left ear pain that just made me miserable. I didn’t know if I could have dental care with the the angiogram coming up the following week, and none of my doctors were calling me back! My radiologist called me on Friday and gave me the okay, but by then the soonest dental appointment I could get was the day after the angiogram! lol So I kept lathering my gums in ANBESOL and ORAJEL.
***Important Note - The dentist later told me that ANBESOL is made with aspirin,and therefore is a blood thinner! I am certainly lucky that Christina brought home ORAJEL when we ran out of the ANBESOL. She may have saved my life during that angiogram!
The cerebral angiogram was much easier than the one I had four years ago. Instead of having to lie still in Recovery for six hours, it was only three hours! They even fed me lunch before we left. I highly reccommend Dr. Chow and his staff at Westchester Medical Center!
The next day, September 4th, I went to the dentist. It turns out that I had two badly infected teeth. He put me on antibiotics and I got them removed today by an oral surgeon.
During all of this, we’ve had a myriad of computer problems. To all of our newest members…hello and welcome to our family! To everyone, it’s good to be home!
