It's been a while since my last blog posting. I keep trying to get here but something keeps preventing me. My kids, my house and now my health.
I am okay for the most part other than the constant head aches and sleepless nights. For most this would drive you nuts... for me it's business as usual.
Till this past Wednesday when it took it up a notch.
At about 8 p.m. I started to get a ache in my lower right side jaw. At first it was low and dull then as the evening drove on it got progressively and aggressively PAINFUL!!
By 2 a.m. I could hardly stand it. I felt like screaming and couldn't stop twitching from the pain. It felt like I was going to loose it. I stumbled down stairs to take the only pain meds I have. Great Tylenol PM. Yeah... right that should do it. NOT.
I popped two and went back to bed only to not sleep.....
The rest of the day was a constant cringing crying in agony. Seriously.. I cried. I rarely ever cry. I can't remember the last time I actually cried because of pain. I was a mess.
The two older kids seemed to know it too. But instead of helping Mom out by being good little boys they laid it on real thick. Doing just about everything they could to get in trouble. I thought maybe at the time that it was just me being unreasonable because I'm hurting.. nope.
They were being truly awful. Johnpaul doing anything and everything to make Nathaniel whine, scream and cry. Nathaniel getting into EVERYTHING and my poor sweet Christian my kindred spirt being super needy clingy because he shares the same issue.
Yep, we are both teething.....
About 6 years ago I had my Wisdom teeth removed but they left one. This one was NOT removed for one very big reason. It is too close to the edge of the jaw. It was determined then that it wasn't at risk, wasn't bothering any teeth so leave it be. That if removed there was just too high of a risk of the amount of pressure used need to remove this monster tooth would break my jaw. Okay I gotta tell you.. I agreed and so did the other three consulting specialists. So it was left.
About a year ago I started my teething process with this tooth. At 35 my #32 tooth was making it's way. And all I have to say is OUCH!!! I do know that teething for our small sweet ones hurts. It really truly does.
Which brings me to my current situation... Up to speed back to current times.
I went to the dentist Thursday at 4:30 p.m and heard the phrase I was dreading. "Well, it needs to come out." We talked again about the risks and it was then I was faced with no matter what... It has to come out. There IS no other choice. Awesome.... So I call around making one appointment I thought I'd never be making... An appointment to pretty much have my jaw broken. Neat sounds fun.. sign me up.
I found a doc and I have the consulting appointment Monday at 1:45 p.m. and am penciled in for removal on Wednesday.
Well.. there it is. Soon it will be all over and I will be on the mend. I also learned that this is the reason for my on going now into my 5th month of daily 24 hour head aches. Good news after this they should go away. All well worth it right??
