Scripted

Greetings to all on this sunny but cold day.  As I sit with racing heart and a case of the trots from strong meds for excruciating pain, I am awaiting a call from the dentist as to whether a root canal can save a large molar or if an extraction is necessary.  Since my TMJ issue prevents my mouth from opening wide enough, or for any period of time, and has locked (panic!) in the office before, I seriously doubt the root work and following crown will be possible.  Why do I have this jaw joint issue?  Because the hygienist I faithfully visited every 6 months for 12 years told me all was well, never recommended perio surgery and because of her negligence I lost a tooth and now another.  I did not sue for either of my falls (and the hardware store owner will not even pay my doctor/x-ray co-pays) both of which left me with damage to knee and ankle, but I am so sorry I did not sue her for negligence.  I could have used the funds to replace with implants.  But then - could I open my mouth wide enough for that work?  Not only did she cause the loss, she caused the reason I can't have them replaced. Pain for years, life changing, my cheek is indented where the tooth is missing, my speech is different, my entire mouth is suffering from my jaw swinging to the right and affecting all the other teeth.  The tooth I lost is the last molar on top, above a permanent bridge, which caused the bite to change and throw everything off.  Four bite adjustments and my top lip still doesn't align with the bottom.  Freaking pissed?  You bet.  Now this molar on the other side and I will be sounding like Daffy Duck.  Looney Tunes forever.  Well, looney.

Anyway,  Carole now has sciatica and we have to go shopping for her again this afternoon.  But when I get back and if I can stay awake from lack of sleep, I want to work on these finishes.  Fabric choices whittled down to one or two.
There is no where locally to find wools and what I have isn't the right shade for the red pouch, so the hell with it.  When going through the fabrics I came across the script designs and sampler fabrics that I don't seem to like as backing.  Thought I would.  But I don't.  Then I decided to make a stitching bag with them, and shit-canned that idea too.  I like my clear zip folders so I can see at a glance what a mess I have in there.





Really like this red script and would like to age it, but will I ever use it?


What's left of Blackbird Designs (?) sampler prints.



I bought this postcard/telegram print in beige, brown, and red.  Only used the red.


And more script.  I also have pieces of smaller script and sampler prints, may use those for something.

Well, it's time to chew down the meds and get to her shopping.  I really hate to make that appointment with a new doc for an extraction.  What happened to the old days when our dentists did it?  Maybe I will hold off.



As my pal Porky Pig would say, "that's all folks!".

hi marly, does your dentist offer the 'happy gas' while he works on your teeth? (sorry, I don't know the real name for it). you will stay completely awake and aware, yet feel no pain or inconvenience while the work is being done. when it is finished, you feel rested and relaxed. you can also have them adjust the rate of flow from very little to more, as needed. I suggest this only as a potential aid to the fear of a locking jaw-- to help relax both your jaw and your mind. good luck!

Hi Marly, I'm so sorry to hear about the dental issues and pain. Hoping it all works out well for you soon. "Rebecca Hall" turned out gorgeous!! Take care. SAH

Debra said...

Oh, Marly, I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well. I absolutely hate dental issues, having had a few myself. Hope that you have a kind and competent dentist, and that your pain will soon be alleviated.

Well, as the saying goes, if you expect incompetence you will never be disappointed! Sending good vibes your way and hoping your issues will be resolved very soon. You are quite the trooper!

Barb said...

So very sorry to hear about the tooth! It must be very uncomfortable!!!I sure hope you will feel much better very soon!

Poor Marly! My mouth is very small from nature so I cannot open my mouth very wide but have never had a problem with the dentist. When there is a big problem and I will have a lot of pain he will give me an injection so I don't feel anything of what he is doing.
Think positif that makes a big different.
Good luck
Greetings Truus from Holland

Going to my dentist is ONE of my least favorite places to go. This dentist is a new one..........the old one hit my one of my front teeth with a drill while drilling the one next to it.........had to have two implants. Should have sued him !
Sorry you're having a tooth/teeth problems. I know how it is. I hope you can get the tooth fixed and not have to have an extraction.
Thinking of you.

Oh gees... I am so sorry about your issues with your teeth! I hope you can get things fixed with Better results. On another note...I love those last two fabrics you showed....the telegraph and the script prints. Did you get them recently? I'd love to find them to buy some.
Hang in there...like you always do!

Sorry about your tooth woes. Good luck!

Carol said...

Hope you get your tooth problem resolved very soon, Marly. I hate the dentist, but just had to deal with an implant (of a front tooth of all places!) over the past 13 months. Not fun, but I'm finally back to "normal." Hang in there!
