Out of action....

Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post...... tomorrow is the last day & I'll be using the random number thingy on Thursday to pick a winner.

However I won't be posting your goodies this week, I think I'm going to be out of action for a while.

You see I've had a niggle in my back teeth for a while then on Sunday evening I got TOOTHACHE..... yep it was that bad!!

So Monday saw me heading to the emergency dentist at the hospital thinking they would just whip it out & everything would be fine...... but no that's not how 2012 is going for me.... it turns out it's a wisdom tooth that's infected the one beside it too. I also have one on the other side that's ok for now but I'm told it'll get bad very soon.

So on Thursday morning I will have both bottom wisdom teeth removed...... plus they need to remove the ones beside them first to get access to them!

I was planning on popping in, getting 4 teeth out then hopping on the bus to work but I've been told so many horror stories I think I might have to take the day off....... it's been 30 years since I had a tooth pulled out, I thought they still did gas! I've been told that a couple of injections is all I need.

So that's my week sorted then!

The pain can't be as bad as it has been for the last 2 days :(

I promise I'll post next week when hopefully I'll start to feel a bit more human.


  1. Aww hope you're ok Joe, you'll feel better as soon as they're out ... Wishing you a speedy recovery! Xxx

  2. Hope you feel better soon. Please tell us how it went.........

  3. Oh no, that sounds really awful!! I popped on here to look at the make do and mend event for next week with the poppy making. Really hope it all goes okay and you are okay x

  4. Hope you feel better soon Joe!! xo Heather

  5. Don't worry it'll soon be over, hope all goes well, Lucey x

  6. Oh golly Joe, poor you. I remember my last toothache bout, also due to a wisdom tooth, about 8 years ago and it was agony. Getting it out was also pretty grim but only lasted the day and better than the toothache, as you say.

  7. Wisdom teeth are so miserable but at least when they are gone its over, get the ibuprofen ready x

  8. Good luck tomorrow Joe, just think how much better you'll feel when the little buggers are out. My advice, make some jelly before hand and buy some maltesers (you can just suck them so you get a treat and no pain).
    Will be thinking of you xx

  9. Oh no, you poor thing. It's not nice having teeth pulled, but it is better than it was years ago. Lets face it though it will be miles better than toothache which can be dreadful! I would keep on top of the painkillers for the rest of the day afterwards and just sit up and relax, nothing strenuous. Ill send some positive vibes your way x

  10. Hope all is ok... I had a tooth taken out when I was having all my dental work and it was fine... I was petrified and not a pleasant experience but over so quickly!

  11. oh poor you, sounds awful, at least once they are out that'll be it. Hope all went well and it was as straightforward and painless as possible. Take care lovely and hope you are feeling good very soon
