I apologize for this, but I’m not at all well. My minor toothache escalated into some of the worst pain I’ve ever experienced in the space of one hour and has stayed that way, resisting all treatments. My dentist has apparently not been in the office all day.
I’m making spotty progress on today’s chapter, but it’s far from done and won’t be done by my usual midnight posting time, and at this point I’m coping with exhaustion on top of agony. The writing wasn’t going well anyway and has come to a stop.
Gonna try to see if the dentist can squeeze me in for an emergency visit tomorrow, assuming anybody’s there. No idea why the office was closed today; maybe she’s on vacation. If that doesn’t pan out I may suck it up and go to the emergency room. There’s not gonna be much if any sleep for me tonight, but I’m going to try to catch a nap or two if I can.
Chapter 5 – 16 will thus be late, hopefully not too much so. If at all possible I’ll try to have it done at some point Wednesday. There are a lot of variables concerning how the day might go, however, few of them promising.
Thanks for your patience.
