I'm Back!

What a day!  So glad it's almost bedtime.  Hubby has been an absolute star today as this morning I was the nervous wreck from hell. 

When we arrived at the dentist there was a lady coming out, very groggy, with her daughter and the dentist helping her to the car.  You could see from her eyes that she had no idea where she was and she had two great lumps of cotton wool sticking out of her mouth.  I nearly passed out there and then on the driveway!

Once I got in there, after the usual struggle to get an xray plate in my mouth (I have a very restricted bite since breaking my jaw in three places in a car accident), the dentist put the tight elastic round my arm to raise a vein and then injected the sedation stuff.  I remember him saying "you'll feel light headed in a minute, just go with it" .... and that was it.  The rest of the day is total fuzz.  Toad apparently got me home about an hour later and I have done nothing but sleep!

Had a couple of sloppy Weetabix late this afternoon and just had a bowl of soup with tiny cubes of bread submerged in it.  It's like being 5 years old again.  Had to take a couple of painkillers earlier but don't feel too bad at all at the moment.

Sedation is definitely the way to go!  Thanks for all your good wishes and prayers, I am certain they helped.  Be back with you tomorrow with some cards.

Oh, meant to say, you can go off some people really quickly.  My friend Jacqui with whom I often get a lift home from work gave me a small gift wrapped package last night - it's a "Make Your Own Tooth Fairy Keepsake Box" !!!

Hugs, Squirrel xxx

Hi Squirrel,

Big 'feeling better' hug,

Hi Hun :)

So glad you're ok - fancy seeing that on the way IN! Maybe next time you should have the 'Happy Jab' BEFORE you leave the house!!!

So have you made the 'Tooth-fairy keepsake box' yet? You could always make it up and give it back to your friend after crossing out the 'fairy' bit!!! ;)

Hi Squirrel so glad everything went ok and thank heavens for sedation, I reckon we should all have our own secret supply and then we could just totally block out the bad things in our lives. glad to here mr Toad is looking after you just as he should. Andrew asked about you yesturday when I told him you had to go to the dentist but had sent him get well wishes , he's learning who my blog friends are or maybe squirrel and toad are just names he remembers as he thinks theyre fun but he said he hoped you went on ok so I can now tell him.
Take it easy and keep popping those pills before you get any pain, and the tooth fairy box gift made me smile, its a good job the giver was your friend? best wishes for a speedy recovery Julye
