On a grey and wintery morning here in the land of sunshine I am tucked up in bed trying to find strength to do a post …. after a week when S has has been so ill he just slept all day and I unexpectedly had jaw surgery on Thursday morning. How can that happen you say?
I was on a cancellation list for the dentist for about four weeks with a relatively innocent niggling tooth. I completely forgot that the adjacent tooth and jaw had a nasty bone infection a few years ago, but when the dentist saw the xray he pointed out the osteomyelitis all around this second tooth, which had probably split. So impressed was he that his schedule was rearranged and I was back the next morning for a two hour surgery, where the tooth was extracted and the bone abraided to remove unhealthy tissue. So nine holes in the jaw later I was revived with oxygen and drove home to my sick husband. No prizes for guessing that S has decided to share his virus with me too, so things are bit challenging here.
One tip though, if you do not know about the miraculous powers of Traumeel to heal soft tissue damage you might be glad to learn about it. I had no pain by Friday morning, no bruising, and just a little swelling. Mind you with all the stitches inside my mouth I dont feel much like eating, but the healing is just great! I have told the dentist about Traumeel but because it is homeopathy he is not interested, too bad for his patients.
So that is about our battles with viruses and bacteria …. now for some kangaroo battles.
