Sweetness of Spring.......

Look who's peeking from underneath the beautiful tulip.....
I made this beautiful basket of Spring flowers a few years ago and it always does my heart good to bring it down from the attic every Spring. It is so refreshing to look at the beautiful flowers and to know that they will be blooming outside pretty soon. We are having a really cold week but next week looks better. I was able to work outside yesterday. I was all bundled up and was moving around a lot so I wasn't too cold.

~~I have my second appointment at the endodontist tomorrow and I can truthfully say, "I am not looking forward to this". This appointment is to fill the hole that he made last week. He had put some medicine in there to sterilize the inside of the tooth and now he will remove that and plug up the channel. Then, I go back to my dentist and he will put a filling in the tooth part. Needless to say, I will be very happy when this work is finished.

~~I went today and bought a new washing machine. My old one is 34 yrs old and the timer finally gave out. I never had one problem with it in all those years!

I hope everyone has a really wonderful week.

'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Feeling much better.....

This is just a "little" something that I made last night. It's for the project that I'm working on.~~ My tooth is much, much better. Now tomorrow, I have to go for the first treatment for my root canal. Needless to say, I am not looking forward to this. I've had so much pain over the last 10 days that I don't want any more. Hopefully it won't be too bad.
~~In my last welcome post, I said hello to Lindsay. She does have a blog and you can read about her adventures at Tails to Tell Studio. Go on over and check it out, you'll love it!

Welcome to all, I hope you enjoy what you read and hangin' together.

~~I want to give you an update on my condition. I am happy to say that the swelling is getting smaller and that the antibiotics are doing their job! It still hurts and I can't chew on it yet, but it is somewhat better. I think a few more days and I will be good as new. (Almost!) I will still have to have the root canal job done on it. I've had a crown on that tooth for about 6 years now with no problem or indication of anything wrong, so this really surprised me. I'm very happy that I won't lose the tooth! I need all that I have left! lol Thanks to all for your sweet comments and concern. ~~

Back to the real world.....

Well, I'm back from a fabulous vacation....I got home Friday morn at 1 am. Saturday morning I woke up with a toothache. I thought it was on the bottom jaw, but the top tooth hurt, too. By Sunday, I'm calling my dentist, and he called in a pain killer for me. Went into his office at 8:00 am Monday morning and he said I had an infection and I should go to the endodontist. It was the top tooth. Went there and he said I would have to wait 'til the infection cleared to do a root canal. Gave me antibiotics and made two appts for me. He said if it starts to swell, to call him right away. Within 2 hours of leaving there, it started to swell! I go back in and he tries to numb it with 4 or 5 shots of Novocaine and it just wouldn't get numb. He was going to drill a hole in it and try to drain it and put some medication in there. It hurt so much that he couldn't do it. And I was not going to let him even touch it, especially with a drill! So, he gave me another prescription for stronger antibiotics and fortunately, the pain killer is doing it's job. I am still very swollen and just waiting for this to go away. Not fun! So, I'm heading back to the couch and I will waste another day. I am not doing anything because I don't feel like it. I'm just waiting.....
