Cat, did the doctor tell you to rinse with warm salt water? My dentist did. It can't hurt. You want it a "normal saline" concentration - 0.9% salt in water, ~1.6 tsps/litre. I think it is supposed to be about as salty as tears. Maybe PF can tell us. It doesn't have to be all that exact.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

I've had that a couple of times Cat so I know it is horribly painful. And having to eat soft food gets old very quickly! Glad your abscess is draining now.

DA told me of the salt water mixture, and I am doing this. I did not sleep well. The pain gets bad then not so bad over and over.

Uckk. I have a new job but I was lucky to not to be scheduled for work today. I would have to call them and stay at home. I have never done that before. That is a terrible thing of to do to an employer, but I would be forced of it.

Mamma and Carl and Lakisha have called to check of me and Gwen is here to help with DA. I am not doing much work today, so I shall rest and take care of this.

You have heard of to apply for a business and to put of it LLC, yes? We call ourselves the LCC. Lakisha, Carl, and Cat. Ha! It is so good to have of good friends here on this website and in my life.

If I could make only one wish to come true ever of my life I would wish no one has this pain anywhere of their bodies.

With love,

So sorry, Cat. Glad you have antibiotics, I feel better, as an untreated abscess can infect the brain. Hope you can see your dentist soon!

Oh my Cat. You'll feel better soon, as I told you. You're doing the right thing to take it easy today. And don't go to work tomorrow, please. I know it's only five hours, but you need to take these two days to get a little better and not push yourself, for you have class on Monday.

You've got your doctor's note to prove you aren't fit for work this weekend. Call your supervisor today, and tell him you can't come in tomorrow. I'd call you, but my Skype is down for some reason and Papa's been on the phone all day with that idiot supplier again.

Thank you all for helping her. This is why Carl said this beats the crap out of Facebook!
