Last night, I actually went to bed by 11:00 p.m.! Then, I read in bed until 11:30 p.m. and turned off the light! Not that I fell asleep immediately - it was well past 1:00 a.m. when I fell asleep and I kept waking up every hour or so, and an earthquake at around 4:00 a.m. woke me up, too, but, I slept till 9:00 a.m. My daughter stayed up till after 3:00 a.m., and kept checking on me every time I woke up! Poor thing was so worried about me. But, she slept right through the earthquake!
This morning, I woke up with a sore arm and some aches and pains, but, other than that, I felt fine. I answered some emails from my tax consultant; the taxes were filed electronically, but the file of paper documents I submitted to her are ready for pick up. She offered to mail them, but, I declined; I prefer to collect it in person.
Then, around noon, my daughter broke a tooth! She had been waiting until after the pandemic to go to the dentist, but, I guess the tooth had other ideas. I called my dentist and they were able to see her this afternoon. I went with her - she needs to have her wisdom teeth extracted, but, has to do a CT scan at their other office, first (appointment made for next Monday). Today, they did a deep cleaning. Fortunately, the broken tooth isn't causing any pain.
After we came back, I felt more aches and chills. When my daughter checked my temperature, I was running a slight fever. But, they say that this is a sign of the antibodies doing their thing and medications like Tylenol can interfere with the process, so I was reluctant to take anything. However, when the fever went up to 100.5, I took two Tylenols and slept a bit. The Tylenols brought the fever down and I no longer had the aches and chills. I had some soup for dinner and a tangerine.
Aunt C and friend R called to check on me; R wanted to order some food to be delivered to me, but, I declined. I called S to postpone my piano lesson, however, because I haven't been able to practice much, yesterday and today. I also called neighbor T's daughter because there was an ambulance in front of T's house and I was concerned; but, she said her mother was OK (apparently, the ambulance was for someone in the house next to T's).
I'm glad I had planned to take things easy today! Don't have a lot planned for tomorrow, either!
Today, I am grateful for:
- The side effects weren't any worse than they were
- The dentist was able to see daughter right away
- Dental insurance
- Phone calls from aunt and friend R
Today's joyful activity was sleeping off the side effects!
How was your Monday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
