hey ya all, how is everyone doing this fine day of may, did you know today is the actual true memorial day? or rememerance day as it was known for many years. i like a three day weekend as well as anyone else, but some days should be sacred. take the 4th of july would you ever think that to celebrate it say oh sept 16th would be good. of course not. its our nations birth and is where we celebrate our freedoms. although some kind of go over board. but i think some days like memorial day should be celebrated on memorial day. today as i fly my flag in pride and thankfullness, i ponder on how this country has gotten where we are today, i think about the libertys we all have, the right to vote, the right to bear arms, the right to have free speech just to name a few,. then we have those who do nothing but complain about this country, how its gone to the dogs, ( please lets not insult the dogs) well
i agree things are bad, but not so bad that it can not be turned around. when we get a rip in our jeans, we patch it up or throw it away or do what i do and make cut offs shorts saving me the need to have to buy those for spring and summer. my point is this country can be saved and its going to tae the hard work of everyone involved. oh can't do heavy work? HA, there is no one who can't pic a phone up and call the police when they see a drug deal going down or domestic violence or any other number of things which i will refrain from saying as i know there are some younger people who read my blog and i don't want them to feel uncomfortable. we can make a difference, our veterans did. ever see someone proudly wearing a hat or a jacket proclaiming that they are a vet of diff wars? well most of the world war 2 vets are not around much but you occasionally will see one or two, today i did what i do every time i see someone who is a vet. i thanked them, was a gentleman at the grocery store who was sitting waiting for his wife to finish shopping, after i put my grocerys in my car i approached his window(it was down already) and told him thanks, he looked at me with tears in his eyes and said young lady, you just made my day
alright now on to other business. i have been being a good secret pal i think. today sent my pal at the mania a package and the one at the ville she will be getting something soon. well maybe even sooner than i know as i sent snail mail also lmao
am feeling a tiny bit better. but am ahead of myself now once again as usual, to start at the begining
i went to the dentist the 23rd and had him finish the root canall, he had started the week before when my front tooth went absess. it was not a usual visit , for some reason he gave me way to much numbing agent. i mean my mouth hurt bad afterwards. well the whole day was a disaster, his assitant who i shall call lulu, was horrible, she kept trying to put on of those rubber dams on and could not get it to fit or anything i finally said STOP your hurting me, she hit the top of my mouth several times with the insturmentation that she used for it. needless to say was not a happy camper. hell i hate camping, so we finish and he says looking good should have a little soreness but not for long, i said alright thanks doc,
next day my lip is swollen and my face hurts like hell, i call at the start of the office hours and get the receptionist. i tell her i am hurting alot more than the i should be and am swollen, she says hang on, goes and tells the doc, comes back and she says he wanted me to take a antibotic and he called some pain meds in
fine i go get them take them and still am in agony worse yet by 4 that afternoon i called begging to come in and he said no didn't need to give the meds time to work, i said alright , thursday night am getting worse , friday morning rolls around and i can hardly see out of my eye, i call and of course he is out of town for the weekend, saturday morning am begging someone to find a damn gun and shoot me and put me out of my misery, my face is swollen completely shut on one eye i can't see out ot it at all can't of course get ahold of dentist because yep you got the prize he was out of town said his daughter when i finally did reach someone. so now i am screwed. i knew if i didn't get help soon i would not make it, i mean it was so bad that you could see it swelling as you watched., i look in the phone book thinking maybe the lord will be kind to me today
and make sure that i find someone. i looked up dentists and in the front of the posting there was a number for 1 800- dentist, i call and am hurting so bad am crying , the girl was so kind. she says how far is milton from where you live i said not to bad , she said i found you one. i am now crying so hard can't hardly understand her, daughter gets directions, so i go for the appointment, as soon as i walk in they are all very concerned, said as soon as i could get the paperwork done they would get me in, as i truly was a emergency case. i see the dentist who is a very nice and sweet lady
she looked at me and said oh boy, they took a xray (omgosh i about died) and it showed that there was a halo at the top of the tooth he had worked on. told me she would have to open the cheek up thru the gum line and hope that they could catch a pocket of that infected area. gave me some antibotics and said take them come back at 1, so i did and the poor girl who was her assistant kept apologizing to me saying she knew it would hurt me bad but she had to numb me
i said do what you have to. is alright , and thanked her for helping me. so after about 20 minutes of total hell believe me i suffered bad even with the nitrous oxide i had. the dentist came in and started to open the area up., i will spare you the gross details but she was able and i truly believe my guardian angel guided her hand find the exact pocket that she needed and was not just blood as she thought. after about 30 min of torture so great that the people who are so cruel in war would have been proud, she said she was done. they gave me another shot as i was already not numb(i go thru it fast, it don't last long for me the numbing agent i mean) and is at there for a bit and finally was able to get up and go and get into the car and go home, i suffered soooo bad because of the 1st docs lack of caring . but techinally that isn't true as he is a caring man, i guess more like his loss of thought for my pain level and not listening to me caused me to have to suffered and continue to suffer great pain,. i took pics and if anyone wants to see them i will show them but they are pretty bad.
alright i had my say and it made me feel a bit better, kind of wanted ya all to know why i was not around or posting in your blog. i was to busy almost dying. life is strange, for people who say women are the weaker sex, i sure can tell them a thing or 1,000 about how wrong they are. no one and i say again NO ONE should EVER have to suffer like i have,. and no i know i am not the only one believe me, i am thankful every day i live in the us. if i lived in some third world country i would have died for sure.
well for those of you who read this whole blog and didn't complain once. i thank you. god bless you all and i want to thank our men and women in the united states military service AND their families, a great big hug and thanks from a greatful american, who loves her country and those who choose to defend this great nation again THANk YOU god bless you all
