Update on Marilyn (for Saturday)...

Just want to mention an update for Marilyn's condition...

With NOT finishing her antibiotic, her tooth is more painful again. We'll both be glad when she finally gets it pulled! (At least it's not swollen again, thank God.)

She used to be allergic to penicillin as a child, for the record. (I don't know if I mentioned that before.) So her reaction to the antibiotic is probably something related to that. She was worse this morning, but didn't have much time to think about it, as we had to leave early to get to the Memorial...

It was all the way in Canby, so it was quite a drive. Ashley and Chris from the Staff also showed up, plus my IT guy Donn. There were tons of Rosarians there, as June had been the wife of a Prime Minister. (They did their Rose Ceremony for her.)

(Many Rosarians congratulated me on my award, by the way...)

Marilyn finally started taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) today, which is what Mary (the dentist) has asked her to take. We used something else yesterday (that we had in the house) -- so she's still pretty broken out. But tonight she seems to finally be improving!

I feel so bad for her, dealing with both the pain from the tooth and the itching. She's certainly suffered a lot this past week.

Anyway, we spent a pretty quiet day at home once we got back from both the Memorial and the store (to get the Benadryl). Watching TV and reading.

I want to share my recent list of books I've read in August at some point. But I'll save it for another entry...
