|The Option of ANY Clown Clogs you like?

I went to see the good Dr. Khan-Faroqui today. The pin is still in my foot, but in 2 days time I may cut off the bandages and wear "any shoe" so long as it doesn't rub the plastic gumball pin at the end of my toe and offers stiff support. This shoe would be what? A clownshoe it seems. And I'm fresh out of them. *giggle* I may have one pair that I can wear for a bit.
In other bizarre news, they drilled the daylights out of my tooth so I feel like I've been punched in the face and my temporary crown is made of silver, so I bling like a pirate. That's going to look hot in my photos from this weekend between that, the boot, my peeling nose, and WAIT FOR IT. Thanks to Mother Nature, I started my period!!! Great timing. Just in time for the B&B Weekend. (growl).
They asked if I wanted the gold from my old crown. I figured why not, although I swallowed the part that I ground through with my pain. I'm not sure what to do with my old dental gold. Perhaps a very tiny pinky ring once I get all 3 teeth fixed? I have exactly $28 to my name and I'm thinking about buying a pizza for dinner.
I found out today that I have 81 hours of PTO (vacation and sickleave combined). I will need 48 hours in Feb for the Belize trip, but I MIGHT be able to get by taking off the week of Thanksgiving, and with my health being so bad lately, wouldn't it be a blessing to have that time to try the nerveblock without worry of missing work? It could be worth the risk that I'll get sick and have to take unpaid time. I do have disability insurance if I were to get sick for more than a week. What do you guys think? Also, any idea what people do with old dental gold?
It's been a rough week of physical reconstruction, so thanks to everyone for being so supportive to me here and HAPPY FRIDAY!
So, big dates coming up are Tuesday, when I get my pain management consultation, and hopefully get scheduled for a nerve block. Then the appointment with Dr. K for "New Pain Plan 2009". Exciting times ahead. This blog was written as nerve pain shoots down my hip and leg reminding me why it's worth it to go to these appointments while I have just $28. I did get paid, so more has been deposited. It's going to be a stingy Christmas you guys. Please don't get me anything because the best gift you could give is not imposing the guilt that a gift would leave me feeling. For those who don't know, my out of pocket medical bills have just topped $24,000 on top of the $2500 HCRA account I'd set up. Yes, it has WELL exceeded the 7.5% of my income that it needs to in order to claim it on taxes, so at least that is a silver lining. :) Think happy thoughts.
