It's not throbbing and so far really only hurts when I try to chew with it (or try to wiggle it with my finger which I am totally not doing any more). I got some numbing stuff at the drug store which, actually works pretty darn well. It's a brush deal on the end of a pen thing and you twist the bottom to get gel on the brush and just brush around the gum. Genius idea, if you ask me.
Swimming was good and I did stop and get breakfast and then remembered the car wash on the way home so I whipped through that and managed to get back here before they closed off the roads for the baseball game. Success! I have food, I have entertainment. I'm good.
