Not the day I planned but it had to be done.

Friday, May 16, 2014

I had big plans to get the pool organized if that was possible since it really is very old.

As I ventured out my DIL came upstairs with a toothache and she did not look well. She asked If I would accompany GD in walking the dogs. No problem we had nice walk but GD was not in a good mood at all. She is up half the night and is cranky during the day.
I asked DIL if they have found a dentist, they had not done so.
As soon as I came here I found a GP, Dentist and looked for work.
So I looked up Dentists. I knew My Dentist did not work on Fridays but I did not know it was a widespread practice for Dentists in Maine.
We found one,
I drove her over since our son had just got home to sleep.
DIL was checked out and X-rays were taken and she has an abscessed tooth. She was given 3 Medication' s and by now discovered that the very expensive COBRA did not include Dental. They did have their teeth done a few days before travel.

We got the medications immediately at the pharmacy, she took them and slept. She cannot swallow and did not want to eat.
After lunch I started on the pool but the wind was quite strong and I guess I am weak today so I gave up.

It will rain all weekend so I can stay home and pick up the house.

I have some sewing to do for myself I managed to rearrange my sewing area to my liking.

Now I need to attempt to get rid of my stash of cloth. I bought pants in sales and I have to shorten 4 more pairs. I feel good I have so many clothes now, Pants especially,

It should be motivating to get back to Strength training because I am still using steroid eye drops and I am not losing in fact I feel like I am gaining.

WI tomorrow for a challenge. I only weigh when I need to . HUGS Pat in Maine.

    Glad you got your DIL to the dentist, but sorry to hear about the COBRA not covering it. I don't think there is good dental insurance out there. I know what I have barely pays anything toward the bills when something is needed. emoticon emoticon

    Gee - you have had more than a day-and-a-half :-( I hope that your DIL is feeling a lot better by now.

    I had suitcases full of assorted materials that I had bought years ago. I had plans on making loads of things for me and my kids, as well as to sell. That never eventuated - in part because my sewing machine and over-locker had been playing up. I solved that problem a few months ago. I sold heaps of the materials on Trade-Me - (much like e-bay) I sold my over-locker that way, too.

    Pat, dentists are low, very low on my list. Hope DIL gets some relief. HUGS, Terry

    Perhaps DS can help with the pool?

    Your DIL is very fortunate to have you around. She doesn't sound like much of a planner or a problem solver. Maybe she will learn something from your good influence. I hope she feels better soon. It sounds like she will need a root canal or will lose the tooth.

    I hope your grand daughter will soon be able to go to sleep earlier. Moving can mess up ones internal clock and they were living in a different time zone. Children need a lot more sleep than adults do.

    I hope you can get the pool open soon.

    Sorry to hear of your DIL's abscessed tooth.
    It was really windy here yesterday too. I mowed until the wind was giving me a headache yesterday evening.

    I hope your DIL's tooth gets better with the medications. No fun having an abscessed tooth. Glad that you got your walk in with DGD and don't worry about the pool right now. I am sure you will be able to get to it when you can. We had torrential rains yesterday so I hope it did not travel up your way.

    Despite the rain, have a great weekend!!

    Cobra is always terribly expensive. It may help DIL to look into Obamacare, It may be less expensive and maybe they can get dental with it?

    Tell her emoticon from your SP friends.

    Oh, your poor DIL!! She must have been miserable! I think your GD is at that age (I forget how old she is) when they live their lives like that. They all turn into night owls but have difficulty functioning civilly during the day!! I hope you have a good weekend and DIL feels better!

    I can't imagine having an abscessed tooth and the ache.
    Glad you were able to find a dentist for her. Wow, after all
    that you did yesterday, it's no wonder you have no energy
    today. Have a great rest and a fantastic weekend. emoticon

    I feel so sorry for your DIL. I have been there and done that and it isn't fun! You are keeping busy as usual. Glad that you are getting some rain! We are way behind on our rainfall this year, hopefully some more is in the future for us! emoticon

    Good thing you found a dentist. An abscessed tooth can make life a living ----. I know, I have had one.

    Pat, have you ever worked with Slinky material? It is so soft and comfortable. Last summer that is all I could wear when I had so many blisters on my legs. Anything else made me scream in agony...... Almost wore out the one item I have........

    I forget how old your granddaughter is -- she's almost a teen??? OMG, from the time my DD was 12 to 16 she barely slept @ night then wanted to sleep during the day. Took long time for her to turn that around.

    Sorry to hear about your DIL's dental problem. Hope the meds help and she's feeling better. That is so miserable!
