It's Been Awhile!
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
I haven't written a blog since I came back to Spark after my long health ordeal. But I finally had something happen today that I am still in shock over. Hopefully it won't be too long and drawn out.
Nearly everyone I know well on spark knows the horror I went through back in 2017-2018 when I contracted Sepsis....I won't go back into what sepsis is other than to say it is a killer and by the Grace of God I made it through and am alive today. PTL.
This will be the short because I have already explained about the sepsis I had back then. This story is I hope the last remaining thing left of the sepsis.
I have gone to the dentist since I was 3 years old....they always told me I had "soft" teeth so had to take extra special care of them and I have.
During the 8 months of sepsis care and the psych meds that I wrote about before I was pretty out of it and didn't brush my teeth then....had no inkling. BUT neither did the nurses or caregivers. John said that our favorite caregiver did when she had the time to do it but she was very overworked as are most.
That's the short story of it. I went to my own dentist as soon as I left the hospital and was back in my right mind. It felt so good to have a professional cleaning done but for several reasons I won't go into I no longer cared for his business....he had gotten more money conscious than health conscious (long story). When he was checking my teeth, I already knew that the tooth farthest back on my right lower side is totally intact to the gum but around 2/3 of the tooth base where it attaches to the gum and jaw it is totally gone (imagine an old "cartoon-version" of an apple core but just the top half-that is what my tooth "feels like" to my tongue) and my tongue just will NOT stay away from that tooth. I want it just pulled out because it is so far back and I don't chew on that side but my old doctor told me he would not pull it because he already had it set to be replaced with an implant even though I have told him 3 times I do not want an implant!!!!! So tomorrow I go to my new dentist and at 71 now I hope and pray this dentist listens to me and just pulls it so I can let this thing heal and forget it!
The world is becoming too pushy for me and short of something bad coming to me because of my request, I hope this man listens to me!
Whatever things are bothering you, I pray they get taken care of to YOUR satisfaction and not theirs.
Have a great night, I'm sure I will be back at least one more time after tomorrow!
So I changed to a dentist near home that I heard is very good from a good
