Chaos reigns! The tooth that I chipped before Christmas finally broke up and fell out of my mouth, and became infected so much that I thought I was birthing a softball out my cheek. Red, hot, swollen, hurty. Yesterday, I went into an oral surgeon and had the rest of the tooth and roots cut out. Amazing how much better I felt, once the poison was out of me. I have stitches and meds and will go back this afternoon for a check-up. I’m way better, already. Thank the good Lord for experts in their field, who can help others, as that oral surgeon helped me.
But, I’m rarely alone in my misery, my MIL had health issues Sunday, too. She had her Relay for Life on Saturday night, and her team spent the night on a football field, walking to try to save others. Her team brought in the most money of anyone in the county. Yeah for them! Then Sunday, she felt dizzy and tired. To be expected, we figured. Monday, she felt worse. For some reason, I saw her pastor’s vehicle at her house at 10 pm, and that was unusual — but, he’d won a cake at the relay and I just figured he made a late stop to pick it up. Wrong. His wife is in the medical field and MIL didn’t feel right. Finally, Pastor Bill came to bang on our door at midnight, asking John to take MIL to the hospital because her heart rate was really low and they weren’t seeing anything make it better, after 2 hours. She as in the ICU yesterday, and last night, they installed a pacemaker. I believe she’ll be coming home today, though I don’t know if it’ll be this morning or this afternoon.
And JD is still battling shooting pains from a pinched nerve in his back, pains go all down his arm. He’s not fun to be around when he’s in such a state of disarray. He went back to the bone cracker this morning, so I hope it continues to heal. The area that’s been so painful is back into alignment, now it’s just a matter of waiting for the pinched nerve to recouperate.
I sound like an old lady, with all the aches and pains of the week going on in our casa! So sorry! If you’re the praying type, we’d sure love to be included in your prayers.
I am praying for the health professionals that make us well. It’s the least I can do, for all of their expertise and strength.
