Hot Tuesday

The temperature, that is. At one point my car thermometer said 94. I did take the kids to the pool for a little while. I was able to stay comfortable reading in the dense shade of a tree, but it was warm. I said my final goodbye to my sweet Grandma. At this point, there's just no telling if I'll see her again. She's 85 and misses my late Grandpa terribly. Hopefully she'll hang on a while yet, but I always try to treasure the time I get with her. Maybe I can get out to Arizona soon.

I went to the ENT doc and he seemed pretty calm. He ordered a CAT scan to make sure it isn't something dental that just didn't show up on their x-rays. Option B seemed to be a cyst of some sort. He did not tell me to rush for the CAT scan-he said next week is fine. He put me on another week of antibiotic and said the numbness is due to the inflammation caused by infection. So now I can be curious about the CAT scan-never had one before. I am fascinated by the practice of medicine and medical procedures, so it will actually be sort of cool to see how that all works.

Now I will go read the last 80 pages of Enchantment so I can say I actually finished a book for the Nook WITHIN the allotted month. Won't that be a switch!


  1. Yes, hot. I stayed on inside. Wow! A CAT scan?? That sounds very exciting. I hope it's nothing serious though. Good luck.

  2. Enjoy your CT scan experience! You're funny.

    Glad the ENT was mellow about things. That's always nice. I'll be interested to hear what it is!

  3. I'm sorry you are dealing with pain in your mouth. I hope they will be able to figure out what is going on.

    It was hot today. I took my kids to the pool at around 4, and found a very shady tree as well. I love reading at the pool.

  4. Wow, serious medical procedures. I hope it's only an interesting experience, with only good news :)

  5. I think I'd feel the same way about getting a CAT scan... real life TV or a case for "House"! ; )
