Reline Finally

on January 19, 2012 - 8:20pm

Well, today, Jan 19, 2012 is exactly 1 yr ago today that I had Gall Bladder surgery. They took it & my health slowly improved & improved even more when I got my dentures! I have been healing slowly but surely, Dr. K is happy w/ my progress but he has told me if I need anything to let him know. I am going to start making jewelry again to build inventory back up, I need to take pics of my Christmas jewelry. I haven't done that. But on Mon. the 6th I had the "hard" reline, meaning it's not going to wear away like the pink "soft" relines will, those are made out of pink Zanny that looks just like the pink part of the gum, but soft. I got about 4 of those, about every 2 mo. or so.

Progress

on November 30, 2011 - 12:54am

I would like to report that after many months of healing from my denture surgery, I was still getting sore spots and discomfort with them. I wold take them out ot eat anything, well, finally after many trips to the dentist to have sore places relieved, I can now so far finally chew soft things w/ them in, it's taking a while bc I have to relearn how to move them w/o choking or swallowing wrong. I have to be careful I don't bite the sides of my cheeks or lips, it's all new, but so far after 1 day, I could chew some things. It didn't totally kill me to put them in, this is only the first day, haven't tried anything hard to chew, and I have to take smaller bites to avoid choking as it runs in or family to choke very easy, it's just a hair-trigger reflex and we all do it.

My First Josh Groban Concert, I LOVE YOU JOSH GROBAN! ♥♥♥

on September 3, 2011 - 11:41pm

The eeriest thing of all about my Josh day is that we left Corvallis Bridge at 1:11 pm, then when we turned into our driveway it was 1:11 AM, thta was the really strange and eerie thg about the night,. I also have pics to share of me and all the thgs I got from the oncert. And here they are, incidentally, I will recap my recap, I may be able to remember more stuff now.

Andnow that I've gotten my "Groban Hangover" a little bit under control, here is a better retelling of my day.

We left our house and went to my mom's work and grandma's, but got "on the road at 1:11 pm, start from there. We got to Portland RG easy enough, and then we found parking easy enough. $13 for that, and right by a door. OK, there's some disappointing happenings here, but nothing to do w/ the concert at all.

Got My Smile Back!

on June 2, 2011 - 9:42am

I am happy to report that I now have both plates and I can smile proudly! It went smoothly the surgery did, and I can smile from the heart, not just a closed-lipped smile, (not attractive in my opinion) I can look at ppl's eyes and smile bright, widely, and mean it, my whole BODY smiles! If that makes any sense!

My Dentist Visit~DENTURES ON THE WAY!!! :)

on April 28, 2011 - 1:34pm

We went and they did tons of ex-rays and both top and bottom are pretty much worthless all but 2 teeth he will use as an anchoring point They took two impression sets, they used pink mint-flavored not-edible Zanny to make them, and believe me it's cold and the stuff stuck to my own teeth, I thought they were gonna come out in it! but...we did 2 of each so he can studdy one set and use the other set as a working model, then they took a saparate bite impression in a smaller ammount of the same kind of Zanny. He deadened one sensitive tooth, OMJ IT HURT LIKE U KNOW WHAT!!! THAT'S WHY I NEED JOSH TO HOLD MY HANDS AND SING!!! HE NEEDS TO BE THERE!!!!! I may not get to be totally asleep but if not then I REALLY REALLY NEED JOSH!!!
