Up at night

I slept a while, then woke up, got up. I tend to get up when I know I don't have to work the next morning, even though I often have other plans. I've been up quite a while now,snuggling with Simba, watching LifeTime movies, cleaning the plastic stint - first time for that. I think the problem is that it doesn't stick well enough, so it creates a vacuum, sucks food under and becomes loosened and I feel almost a choky feeling. Dr LaP said he'd look at attaching it better when I come in Monday morning.

This is, of course, not a big deal in the scheme of this operation. The stint is just to help me feel better while the wound heals, and if it were to come out altogether the gum would heal just as well. I would just hurt a lot more up there. So I don't feel particular pressure about keeping it stuck to my mouth, except to make it more comfortable.

I took a Vicodan tablet when I got up and it kicked in a little bit ago. I am liking the feeling. I think when I get back to bed I will be feeling very very drowsy.
