Borrowed from Linda's Peaceful Place:
"Everything in life is temporary. So, when things aren't going well, know that they will always get better. When things are going really well, enjoy it and understand that it too may not last forever."
Last Wednesday I had my dental graft. The periodontist took skin from the roof of my mouth and sewed it to my two bottom teeth. I was so nervous, I insisted on nitrous oxide. BIG mistake! I felt so nauseous from that, even after she turned it down and increased the oxygen. Not only that, but she had numbed the area quite well before sticking any needles in me.
We went to Costco to fill my prescription for pain meds. Now, I am very sensitive to any kind of narcotic and would not make a good drug addict. EVERYTHING makes me sick. I got some Tylenol #3. That used to agree with me, but no more. After the numbing wore off on Wednesday, I was in excruciating pain. I never realized a little mouth could cause so much discomfort.
I ate soup, mashed potatoes, anything soft for the first couple of days. I had been fitted for a plastic thing that covers the roof of my mouth. I get nauseous from that. I also got a special mouthwash and am supposed to rinse three times a day and get nauseous from that too!
I keep the plastic thing in my mouth long enough to eat some food and chew on one side of my mouth. I am still uncomfortable and get the stitches out tomorrow.
We have had many suicides in the area within the last month; five that I know of. That is too many for a small Midwestern area. We discussed this in our Bible study this morning. It has nothing to do with being Christian or not, but many people are in such a deep depression that they are overwhelmed. They forget, or don't realize, that God can deliver them, and they see no way out. We must keep reaching out to those who are hurting.
I am having a Wildtree party this Saturday. I have received two online orders! Please feel free to check it out!
I hope I am feeling better next time! Health and happiness to you!
