So a small “stone” (like a kidney stone) blocked up my saliva gland, fluid built up, got infected, and BOOM…my face exploded like a puffer fish. It felt like I had a water balloon trapped in my cheek, sloshing when I moved.
A day of Serbian hospitals, three doctors, sonograms, MRIs, and penicillin = $150. Thank you socialized medicine.
Feeling better now. Grateful for drugs, my main doctor Jeff, and Minna for nursing me through this.
