I noticed yesterday on my way to go to my doctor’s appointment across town that the office here was inhabited. Someone had turned the sign to Open.
What I learned later was that they moved a young woman from another property to this one for a couple of weeks. They temporarily had a maintenance man here to take care of open maintenance tickets.
Don’t know what will happen next. But at least there’s that.
The doctor I saw cut the cyst out of my mouth. First he numbed it. Then he asked an intern from a medical college to come in.
They had me sit on something to “ground” whatever it was they were using. The intern stood to my left and held this prong to the side of my mouth while the doctor cut it out.
Suddenly I feel this shock on my left side and unconsciously jumped in my seat. The intern had let the prong slip. Since my mouth was not numbed on that side, I got shocked. This reverberated through my left side for some time.
The doctor said this was probably phantom symptoms, but they seemed pretty darn real to me.
When I left I was still sporadically shaking on that side from time to time. And all the way home.
The right side of my face is swollen. The right side of my lip is twice its normal size. Every 6 hours I take Tylenol for the pain. My first dose yesterday didn’t touch the pain. But after that it’s helped alleviate it some.
I’m wondering if when I jumped due to the shock whether the doctor hit my lower bottom teeth with what he was using, because they are sore.
I feel and look like something the cat dragged in.
The doctor told me he didn’t think I could get shingles inside my mouth, and wasn’t sure the dentist who told me that was correct. Still he gave me a prescription for an anti-viral medication.
When I got home I stopped at the office and that’s where I got my information above. The young woman temporarily in the office said that residents here had been calling the owner in Florida.
There must have been a number they found online. I’m sure he wasn’t at all happy about that.
I saw an elderly man walking with a cane as I drove to my apartment. I stopped to talk to him to see what he knew. He was disgusted by the whole thing and said he was looking to move when his lease is up.
He also told me that he called the health department because the pool water is green. His worry was that kids would still climb over the fence to get in there. I don’t know how likely that would be.
He said he begged the lady he talked to at the health department not to divulge his name. He quickly got a phone call from the regional manager, the same one who hung up on me this past week.
She told him kids weren’t climbing over the fence to get in there and to shut up about it.
The reader who commented that there are no anti-retaliation laws in Oklahoma was correct. Which is why I’m trying to stay out of it now.
A concerned 75 year old man who was afraid to have his name mentioned and begged someone not to give it out, and they do it anyway. That seems way over the line to me.
Going to take it easy this weekend. The doctor said the stitches inside my mouth would dissolve in about a week. And to put Vaseline on the corner of the other side of my mouth where I got shocked.
