We had a little fun with the Christmas tree last night - I was able to get off the couch for about 30 minutes without feeling nauseous from all the pain medicine and antibiotics on an empty stomach- enough time to let the children have a little fun with "MY" tree - they are always entranced but the beautiful glass ornaments and the surprises they find!
I think Wilson is horrified that Henderson is eating the ornament! Sure hope that' s not lead paint from 1943 (or China)!
Good news is... I'm feeling MUCH better today 100%- I highly recommend a root canal for anyone with a severe toothache - I know, sounds crazy, but you cannot imagine the pain that one little tooth can rack on your WHOLE body!!!!
Well, from Monday nights' post, I told you that my face was hurting - all my upper teeth on the left side of my mouth. I assumed it was sinus pressure and everyone I talked to agreed. I called my brother-in-law (who's my dentist) yesterday and he said that it sounded like sinus pressure too. Well, after a night a intense pain medicine and antibiotics and steriods, the pain was worse than ever - I'm talking lay in the bed, everytime I get up I'm about to puke or pass out pain. To make matters worse, Henderson decided to wake up 3 times last night with a fever. He's fine now, but I stayed home from work with him. About 10:00 this morning I couldn't take it anymore, so I called my brother-in-law and they worked me in.
I had an absessed tooth - DEAD as a doorknob - more painful than childbirth (or the after pains) and I've had 3 C-sections!!!
I had Henderson with me at the dental office, so I called my father-in-law and bless his heart, he came and picked him up (my mother-in-law and sister-in-law are out of town). I called my best friend - whose husband happens to be my brother-in-law's dentist partner and she picked Emma Claire up from school and took her to gymnastics. Wilson stayed at school.
I stayed at the dental office and had 2 root canals - Yep, 2! The first one didn't quite get it all, so they had to go back in - it was bad (not the root canal - enough Nitrous Oxide and even the worst tooth pain goes away), but the tooth was BAD - apparently I probably knocked it on the head of one of the children at one point and thought nothing of it (you know what I'm talking about - wrestling or tickling the children and BAM head or fist in the mouth - happens all the time!)
I'm a different person now - totally pain free (thanks to 2 WONDERFUL dentists and a little Lortab) All the children are sound asleep (and I need to be), and I am on the computer. Well, off to rest - or clean my house!!!!
A BIG HUGE Thank You to Stan, William, GrandDaddy Bud, Ashley, and the school for helping out and understanding!
BUT, we ALL went to the Alabama Basketball game last night and it was GREAT!!!! Wilson did fine this time, partly due to the fact that we sat in our seats instead of the front row seats, so he wasn't tempted to climb over the railing in search of Big Al! Henderson fell asleep on my shoulder and slept the 2nd half away - I love a baby to fall asleep in my arms - it was worth going, just to experience that!
Abner Wilson Patton III, IV, and V!!!!
Isn't that special?
Thank you, Wilson, for proving me wrong!
This little guy was mesmerized by all the action!
Sissy was excited because I let her wear her Cheerleading uniform and bring her pom poms!!!
I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, sinner, saint - bought by the precious blood of the Living God through Jesus Christ. This is just a glimpse of the life I live - my hands are full, but so is my heart! Enjoy!
