Flippo the plush hippo... He's always comforting.
I'm still not feeling well -- pretty crappy, in fact, with terrible headache -- but the clindamycin seems to be working to get rid of the periodontal abscess. At this point, I am still scheduled for the dental procedure on Wednesday morning.
I need to get into work by early afternoon. I've been terrible with my work and gym schedules since this started last week.
I may update this entry later tonight.
