new tooth

Monday, February 01, 2010

Yes 60+ yr olds can get new teeth - and I'm not talking about dentures (although that may be in my future).

Last May my dentist told me that my body was reabsorbing a tooth. I had no pain, no discomfort; and no, 'they' don't know why bodies sometimes reabsorb teeth.

The oral surgeon removed the offending tooth, added (cadeaver) bone and let me heal for 3 months before he implanted a titanium 'root'. When that healed (another 3+ months), my dentist took impressions and made a new molar. It was screwed on today.

It's a little weird having a molar on that side of my mouth again, but I'm tickled pink. Now I can chew on BOTH sides of my mouth. emoticon

Isn't is great what medical science can do now? LOL

    Dentists have made a lot of progress, haven't they? Glad you got your tooth back. -- Lou

As if to 'celebrate' being home again, my sinuses are acting up - pressure, pain, etc. Some of you know the drill. emoticon

I'm going to rest today, but my heart is still tuned into God and His rich, ABUNDANT blessings on me. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness.

Friday night

Friday, January 29, 2010

We arrived safely back home this afternoon. It's been a busy afternoon and evening getting settled back into a routine. We picked up Darby (our dog) from the pet resort this evening, and she's settling nicely back into our home. I don't know if she was happier to see us, or if we were happier to see her. : )

I'll drop a few lines about our trip in another posting, but wanted to say that I'm glad to be home - 4-1/2 days in a car make for looooong days. But it was worth it.

Looking forward to (and scared to) get on the scale tomorrow morning.


Monday the 25th (late evening)

Monday, January 25, 2010

We started heading for home today, and I'm back to reading email and getting onto SP. I've missed it!!! (We'd spent several days w/someone where we could't get internet service).

After we arrived at the motel this afternoon, I spent almost 40 min on a treadmill. Yea! Then I ate a small apple before we went to dinner. I'm sure that's why I didn't TOTALLY pig out. I left a portion of dinner on my dish.

Now, please don't get the idea I've been real good on this trip, but I have been better than I previously (previous to SP) would have been. So this is a plus. I'm proud of the weight I'd lost before we left home, and hope that when I step on the scale again this weekend that I'll see add'l progress. Realistically, progress would be if I haven't gained anything! emoticon

I'll be some time getting 'caught up' on my SP emails, etc. I've missed y'all.

    So true. No gain is considered a win. Go for it. -- Lou

On the road

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

We're taking a trip. I've used a treadmill several times, and have sometimes watched carefully what I've eaten. Sometimes I've not done well with my eating. I also have done a few exercises that don't require the use of a balance ball....

Just wanting to give an update of my status: mixed results. emoticon

God bless you and yours. emoticon

    Wow! I admire you for keeping up with your exercises while you are on the road. I can always find an excuse it seems. Keep doing what you are doing!! Lee

    I'm impressed that you are incorporating healthy choices as your lifestyle... not just when it is convenient!

    But you're trying. That is most important. One meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time.
