Dice & Slice

Have you ever had one of those days that you woke up in the morning and thought "What is going to happen today?" Well yesterday was one of those days for me...I woke up with some tooth pain and this was the second time around. The first time it hurt, I attributed it to allergies and sinus pressure and it went away. I went to the dentist at 3:00 p.m. yesterday and he said that the tooth was healthy but my gums were bad and there was bone loss so the tooth had to come out. I was not prepared for that and ended up crying. That and the fact that I had only had 225 calories for the day. I had an appt. with Grace and had to cancel on her due to the circumstances. I was bummed to not be able to go! Moi? Upset about missing exercise? Very strange... My cheek is swollen today but I am doing much better. The good news is I can only eat soft food so it is limiting my caloric intake. In fact, I got on the scale and I am down to 258 so I changed my ticker :-D

I am having surgery done on my finger on Monday. I spoke to the doctor and I am going to do the surgery with a local instead of going under. $1,400 vs. $20 for my copay. Insane huh? It is on my right middle finger. I hope it doesn't hurt too much. I guess it will help in the itching department too. My rampant rash is finally starting to clear up but it still itches like the dickens.

As far as the weekend goes, tomorrow is Aunt Roberta's 85th birthday party. I will pick my mom up and take her some since she can't drive at night. I will be giving my aunt the creamer that I painted even though it is 5 years late. LOL! Her son and grandson will be coming from San Diego as a surprise so it should be extra fun. I don't have any plans for Sunday. I got The Blind Side on DVD so I would like to watch that and get some activity in. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

P.S. I have 300 Followers!!!

    Have a good weekend - I want to see the Blind Side (love Sandra Bullock).

  10. I'm with Deb on the dentist. Would rather push a 9 pound baby through the loins anyday! I hope you continue to feel better. Take care of yourself this weekend - relax, self nurture.
    You have your finger as an excuse to kick back and be waited on!

  11. You have had quite the run of bad luck lately, haven't you? I hope the finger surgery goes well. Congrats on the 258!

    Best of luck on Monday and have fun this weekend!

  15. Katie, sorry to hear about the dentist, atleast he was able to take it right away. it is no fun for both of us this week. That difference on the surgery is amazing, wow...good luck with that. you will be exercising soon. take care and hope you are feeling better soon, congrats on that weight going down. hugs.

  16. Hope you feel better soon...that is some stressful stuff to endure.

  17. Hi Katie. Sorry about the tooth. Hope you heal quickly.

    Bearfriend xx

  18. You'll have to write a review of the Blindside. Never seen it but I want to.
    Good luck on the surgery!

  19. Yikes- sorry to hear about the dentist trip- soft foods would not stop me from getting in enough calories! lol
    -mash potatoes & gravy
    -mac n cheese
    -scrambled eggs w/ biscuits & gravy (BAD TJ!!!)
    -frozen yogurt

    :) I hope you have a good weekend after all of this drama!!

  20. Stupid Insurance. A toothache is the worst. Feel better and enjoy The Blindside.

  21. Sorry to hear about your tooth. Tomorrow sounds like fun. Enjoy the celebration. I want to see the Blind Side too, it is supposed to be good.
    Good luck on Monday. I will be thinking positive thoughts for you.

  22. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your tooth. Having pain is bad enough, but then to learn you have to lose it is even worse. I lost a tooth once when I couldn't afford a root canal. I cried and mourned for days after.

    The Blind Side is really good. Enjoy your weekend. It sounds like you have a lot happening in your world.

  23. Sorry about the tooth and the finger-here's to getting your medical stuff in order-hope you had fun at the party and it doesn't surprise me in the least that you have 300 followers-you still haven't accepted me on facebook-boo~


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
