Hey! Hey!

Haven't had much time for blogging this summer. Trying real hard to stay focused and keep myself on task this summer. That means no getting lost in cyberspace! Today however I find myself w/a little time on my hands. I went in on Thursday to have a 2 year old root canal checked out that was bothering me and next thing you know I'm having my gum sliced open, bone drilled into and infection cleaned out. I'm not supposed to exert myself. I'm on a liquid diet, not supposed to talk and worst of all I had to cold turkey give up coffee. Actually giving up coffee isn't so hard the first couple days given the benefit of Vicodin. Here's my advice: Go in as soon as the tooth is bothering you. Don't wait, oh say....a YEAR! On the upside I've lost a couple LB's already! On the downside...well let's face it, all this is a bummer but on Wednesday I'm supposed to go see Willie Nelson so I'm just trying to follow doctors orders for a change and get there.

Hope you all are enjoying your summer.

Oh Mary get better soon! You poor thing. Ride the Vicodin wave as long as you have to and hopefully all will be well soon. Take care my dear!

euuughh! Had many root canals when I was younger. Truly an ugly experience. Hope you're feeling 100% soon.

Great song!
Does your liquid diet include a large glass of Rosé, Mary?

I've only had one root canal, and it was an experience I hope NEVER to repeat. It took a good month before my mouth calmed down. Another YEAR before I actually felt like I could eat almonds again. I don't see how going to a Willie Nelson concert could hurt. Just be sure you've taken your antibiotics & don't go all crazy. Don't know about vicodin; they gave me percocet & it caused such horrible nightmares (real psycho stuff), I only took it for a few days. I lived on Ibuprofen & Aleve (alternating). Feel better soon!

Ouch, not so good to hear that you had to go through that, but it's nice to know you can find a silver lining. Hope you are feeling better in time for Willie!

A sliced up gum does not sound like fun. Good to see you back here, though. Here's to fast healing and a fun concert on Wednesday!
