To do:
clean car, vacuum
bring Simba to vet
do 15 minutes in room of the week - find out which room
salt water rinses, soft foods

Teeth not bad, it seems. The stitches are on the inside of my teeth this time, not on top, so it feels smooth on top. For some reason that feels better. I slept in today, just felt like it. I hope this means I am not going to be as sleepy today.

Maybe take a walk

Off to the vet with the poor Simba. He gets to wait until they can squeeze him in because all appointments are taken. He's not liking it already, doesn't care for that carrier. Maybe he'll bug them at the vet's so much that they'll get to him early.

I am thinking I'll succumb to Vicodan today, too. I can hang around the house most of the day. Simba is at the vet's, I can pick him up later, when he's been looked at.

It's frustrating that I don't know how to treat something like a sneeze and eye discharge in a cat. I thought of using eye drops and the left over antibiotics I had for him, from another thing, but I could make things worse that way. It isn't a good time to be spending so much money but I just have to bite that bullet. Strange metaphor there.

Time to enjoy being frugal. My jaw hurts. Damn it. gonna take the drugs. At least I'll feel better, maybe do more.

Vicodan

I was handling this drug well until today. Today it made me nauseous. Got rid of the pain but with a price. Dang it. Ah well. I'll do aleve later, instead, as it wears off.

Simba's back. Mostly viral, the problem, so there isn't much to do for him. There is a minor bacterial infection so he gets antibiotics for seven days. Otherwise, the vet suggested lysine tablets, 1/2 per day, and saline eye drops. The drug store didn't have saline eye drops, just had saline spray, for contact lenses. The pharmacist said it's the same thing, it will work, so I got it. I like that she suggested simple solutions. I can use these in the future.

I met Karen for coffee and we talked and ended up going to the Thai Classic for dinner. I worry that I may have eaten something that is too intense for my gums right now. I hope I didn't do any damage. We had quite a long conversation.

Mary called while I was there and I told her yes, go ahead and wash your clothes at my home. I hoped she would be here when I returned but she wasn't. Sigh. I miss seeing her!
