What a week

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Last week was a horrible week for me. I had a tooth extracted on Wednesday and they couldn't get me to numb.. so I made the decision to sit there and pretend to be numb so he would go ahead and pull it. The dentist gave me 20 shots to try to numb the tooth he even drilled a hole directly in the tooth and stuck the needle directly in to the nerve. He told me if that last shot didn't numb me he would have to send me to an oral surgeon to have it removed because it meant that tooth just will not numb. I cant afford to go to an oral surgeon.. that's why I chose to pull the tooth instead of get a root canal. I held it together pretty good in the dentist office but as soon as I got to my truck I lost it. I now know what it felt like back in the day. OUCH!!
I have been in soo much pain since and haven't been online much. The tooth socket pain is getting better but I have had a migraine since that day.
Yesterday I had a hard time because I was nauseated due to the headache but had a friend that needed me. If she would have found out how bad I was feeling she would have cancelled her doctor appointment.. so again I had to pretend I was ok.
My daughter has had an upper respiratory infection since last Saturday and nothing seems to be helping her get rid of her cough. She only attended school a day and a half. So we were both worn out and sleeping a lot trying to feel better.
Today my middle child is moving out with friends and I am very emotional about it. A new chapter begins in our lives and I am gonna miss him being here. My oldest child has also gotten an apartment and will be moving in next weekend(he has been on a waiting list for special housing for 2 years). This will be his second attempt at living on his own. For those of you that have read past blogs etc know that both of my boys have disabilities so it makes it extra hard for me to let them go.
Anyhow, I am writing all this on here to get it out of my head so I can let it all go and move forward in my own journey of getting healthy.

    WOW, what a week.
    I hope this week gets better. My oldest is just starting to get on the list for special housing, and Hali moved in with friends too. I totally feel that part of your pain.
    You can overcome all of this. Have you tried rubbing vicks on your daughters feet before sleep (or have her do it) and put socks over them to sleep in? It seems very strange, but it worked for Hali whenever she got a cold (if I caught it before it turned into pneumonia). She was prone to bronchial infections.
    We can totally get through all the hurdles that our lives throw at us. I am a firm believer of that. If I wasn't, I would go crazy.
