Quick Update

Although I had a full mouth extraction and got dentures around 3 years ago, I ended up at the dentist yesterday.
It turned out that the original dentist missed a rather large tooth root during the extraction.
During the last 3 years, it worked itself through the gum and started causing me problems. It got a bit infected, so yesterday at 8 am, I sat in a dentists chair and had the offending root extracted.
This dentist prides himself on his patients NEVER experiencing pain during the procedures. the time I left his office yesterday, I was feeling NO pain. I am pretty sure I was floating.
Went with the Darlin' Man and got my prescriptions filled (antibiotic and painkiller), came home, put together potato soup for dinner, put it on simmer on the back burner and went to sleep.
The kids and my son milked and fed the goats yesterday...very nice of them!

Today I am doing better, but still not quite 100%.
So, I have started some laundry in the washer, some dishes in the dishwasher and will now take 1/2 of a pain pill and take a nap. If I had taken the pain pill before doing chores, I am sure I would have had dishes in the washer and clothes in the dishwasher!
I only take 1/2 of a pill at a time as I am hyper-sensitive to just about every medication (including over the counter) and if I take a full pain pill, it would knock me out for about 10 hours!
So, nap time for me...tomorrow I'll catch up on things here and post the recipe for my potato soup! (It is really easy and so delicious!)


  1. I love potato soup. I'm curious to see how close our recipes are. :) Have a good nap and hope you continue to be pain free.

  2. OMG, back to the dentist, me too. On Monday, I see an oral surgeon for a plan of action and their movie on the surgical process. I am not looking forward to this. Glad to hear your doing well from your procedure. Hopefully, you won't have to go back.

  3. Sorry you had to get it done, but very glad to hear it came out with no problems. Hope you get 100% real soon. Glad to know the clan is helping you out, & can't wait to see that recipe, you're an amazing cook!
