Awww man

Constant pit in my stomach. Restless, sleepless nights. Mind racing a million miles a second. Nerves making my insides flip flop...yep, that's what this week has been like for me. All because of the dread over Thursday's wisdom teeth surgery. 2 of them are partially impacted, so only minor cutting is needed. Because of my extreeeeeme nervousness, they are putting me to sleep, which I am nervous about too. I've never had anesthesia, so I'm hoping I don't have some crazy reaction to it. My nature is to think about the worst possibilities, and they don't help with the stupid video they show at your consultation, stating all the things that could happen. I'm praying it all goes smoothly with no problems or side effects and a quick recovery. The upside of this (there actually is one) is that my Momma is coming down for a few days since Jason only gets Thursday off to take me to the appointment and he has school this weekend. She's going to take care of me and make me my favorite potato soup:) A girl likes to have her Momma with her when she doesn't feel good...no matter how old she is. When I get out my fog, I'll update.

Hi Christie, I haven't been by in ages and it's nice catching up with you. I'm so glad your mom will be with you for the next few days! Just think of how nice that will be and don't dwell on 'the other.' I'll send up a prayer for you:)

I printed out the shepherd's pie recipe. My husband loves shepherd's pie (so he's told me time and time again) and I've never made it. (we've only been married 24 years). This looks like a recipe I can handle and that my kids would love too!

What a cool setup for your beta! Mine would be jealous!

My brother left for his tour in Iraq a week ago. My sister-in-law is counting the days until he's home (next January). I have a whole new appreciation for all of you military wives! You're awesome and so strong.

My daughter (formerly of Psalm951.blogspot.com) had her wisdom teeth out last year and was put out. She went out fast and woke up sitting in a chair. She saw double for a bit and drooled. I enjoyed that. Payback is in her future. ;o)

She was feeling *great* the next day and went to help at a swim meet. Crazy girl. But she was fine except for needing Tylenol and soft foods. Very soft foods the first couple days. Very.

The potato soup will be appreciated. :o)

Your mom knows who I am...and who I used to be. Ooh, that reads mysterious, hm?

You'll do GREAT!! ... and I'll be praying as well...



thank you so much for my birthday present... and Christmas present! That basket of goodies is just what I need to feel like a girl again ;o) and I just love that Willow Tree Keepsake Box. I'm going to have to find the perfect place for it!

Love you! and miss you!

Praying for you, that everything
goes well, today. Had my wisdom teeth taken out when I was 16.
I was in the hospital over night when I had mine done, they pulled all 4 at the same time.

I will have to try the shepherd's
pie, it looks good. I like anything with cheese.
I enjoy reading you blog.
I thank you and your husband for your service for our country.
Jennifer

Christie,

My prayers are with you. I'm so happy that your mommy will be there.

Take good care of yourself. We have been praying and will continue to do so. I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Christie,
I know your mommie will take wonderful care of you...that is what mommies are for...and believe me she gets great pleasure in taking care of you while you are recovering from your tooth surgery...
just remember to save your teeth to put them under your pillow...so the tooth fairy will give you 50 cents...or is it up to $1.00 now?
I am praying for you that you will
do well with the recovery...
Mimi
