Yesterday I went to the gym and had a good cardio workout.

I had a dentist appointment at 3pm. I have very healthy gums and teeth. Due to over brushing with a hard toothbrush when I was younger, my gum line has receded and my roots of my teeth are showing, causing my much pain over the years. The dentist and I decided it was time to fix this problem over a period of time. The upper right & left this year and the lowers next year. My main problem is I am allergic to Novocaine & Lidocaine, so they have to use products that aren't as strong. They have used this product only a few times over the last 7 or so years. I still feel unwell and was white as a ghost when I finally got home last evening. Didn't eat any dinner until around 8pm. Stomach and headache, to I took Tylenol when I got home too. I go back to at the end of the month to do the left side after doing the right yesterday.

So I am leaving the doctors office, it is around 90 degrees and my car won't start up once again. I call Jeff who comes and rescues me with a jump on the batteries. I wait inside the air-conditioned office where I start to feel sick. I hope I don't feel like this after the next side at the end of the month and need to tell my doctor how I reacted when they open again on Monday.

I drive home with the hubby and son driving behind me but am too scared to turn the A/c or radio on in the car. Some of you will remember me talking here about troubles with my car and Jeff doing so many things to get it running. He thought he had it fixed and I have been driving it around for close to a month, no problems. Even driving to the dentist car was running fine with the radio and A/C running along keep the car nice and cool. So when I call him at first he thinks I am joking. No its too hot too joke and I am very glad I didn't have to wait outside. emoticon

Got up this pretty early this morning because the floor installer's were coming to put the new flooring into two of the bedrooms. Only one room left in the house to get the popcorn ceiling off and put in the new floors. Still felt sick this morning but had to drive up to St. Jude's Medical in Fullerton for a pro-time. Had to adjust just a bit on meds for tomorrow.

The guys were still working on the floors when I got home and I just really wanted to lie down. After they left around 12:30pm or thereabouts, Jeff turned back on the A/C in the house and we all took short naps. Still don't feel 100%, stomach tossing and turning but getting better.

Will take Phred out for a walk once it cools off, currently @ 4pm it is still in the upper 80's.
Have a nice weekend.

    I hope you feel better soon and your car quits acting up. Tooth troubles are no fun at all and car problems are nearly as bad.

    So very sorry you have this dental problem :(( It doesn't sound good with this alternative medication for freezing -to get sick like that maybe an allergic reaction? If its from the same family as the 'caines you might be allergic to all its spin offs.. Have they ever suggested acupuncture? Some dentists prefer to use that with great success, especially for people who hate getting their mouth all frozen and feeling like their lip and face is fat.
    Sorry about the car troubles again :(
    Hope that heat eases up for you! No way man or beast should have to go out in that!!
    They need an air conditioned gym for humans and dogs to get their workouts in!!

    emoticon Boy I hope you haven't developed a sensitivity to the product he used. That is really tough. Hoping you are feeling better today. Did you call and talk to him? So sorry to hear this. I don't enjoy the dentist trips at all and have a tooth that needs to be pulled as it is broken. Really don't want to try to locate another dentist as mine retired this spring. Don't know who would be able to deal with my gag reflex:( Take care and feel better.

    Wow! Sorry you got so sick! Dentist is never pleasant but would be worse if he made you sick all the time! Hope you are better soon. Enjoy your walk, the weather sounds great! emoticon
