It's Complicated

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??

  1. Goodness... Hopefully it will be a fast recovery and you will feel so much better when it is done.

  2. Jeez... sounds horrible!!! I am 26, and still have all my wisdom teeth! I'm so scared that they are going to do something crazy like that! I've had oral surgery before, so that part doesn't scare me... it's the whole jaw breaking business!! I hope everything will go well and that you'll heal fast!

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
