My Dentist appointment

Well, 18 exrays taken and a check-up and I'm told the entire top row of teeth are in need of removal. On the bottom he wants to try to save 9 teeth, good luck, lol. But he says bottom denture plates are hard to get used to cause of less suction to hold them in. Is'nt that what poligrip is for? Oh, well, so now on May 2 I go see an oral surgeon and have a panaramic picture taken of my mouth and discuss when or if something can be done. Well, duhhhhhh the teeth are bad, remove the suckers!! LOL. I was told I would be walking around with no teeth for 2 to 3 months before dentures could be put in. Guess that means no Steak or Corn on the Cob for me! Just pass me the jarred babyfood please, lol. Anyways this is gonna be a costly project. My insurance will pay only 1500.00, so that will help cover the cost of the oral surgeon, my daughter EmmaJean gave me 1000.00 to use to help the cost in my dental work. And as it looks now I still need a little over 1500.00. Where is the affordable denture insurance? Do ya think those dentures in the bubble gum machines would work. They only cost a quarter, lol. Called my hubby Jim and told him what they said and how much it would cost. He was'nt at all surprised or upset about it. His words were, "well hun you need to have it done so your not in so much pain all the time." What a nice thing for him to say, guess that's why I love him so much. Been married to him for over 27 years now. Wow!!!! I stopped over my daughter's house before we came home. My poor little grandson Daniel is so sick with a stomach virus. I checked him over, he had no fever, and was keeping down food finally. All he wanted was to be cuddled in my arms and rocked. He's such a sweetheart. On the way home my daughter took me to the nearby deli where I bought some cold cuts and rolls, and 2 icecream cones. One for Rebecca and one for my granddaughter Marissa. She'll be surprised when her Mommy gives it to her. Saturday EmmaJean and I are taking the girls to the Barnum and Bailey Circus. They are gonna love it, we hope. Well, guess that's about all there is that happened today so far. It's nice to be able to write this all and have people write me back. Thank you everyone for caring enough to do so. You are truely good people. My sister Susie of the Strawberry Patch sent me a link to check out so I can add pictures to my journal. She is the best and I love her dearly. Until next time everyone, have a great day!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Hey sis, wow that's a lot of money..I'll never understand why dentistry costs so much! You know if I had it I would give it to you sis, but we're poor as church mice. I bet the girls will LOVE the circus, I hope they have fun! :-)

  4. good luck with dentures :) i had all my teeth pulled and i do not regret it. its wonderful i didn't have to wait 2 to 3 months they pulled 11 teeth then pulled the rest ( i had some missing) then went back and they fitted the tops the bottums i can't wear because they never did fit right. So good luck


  5. I can't believe how expensive dentistry is nowadays!! Sheesh!  But, it needs to be done.  I hope you have fun at the circus!  I took my son there a few times when he was little. Now, he's 14 and of course has no interest.  Too bad, 'cause I'd still enjoy it!!!
    Have a good evening.

  6. hello your sister sent me here to your journal. I hope all is well and I'm praying for your grandson.

  7. I hope all works out with the dentures and yes, dental bills are skyrocketing fast.  I know many that can still eat steak and they are keep good spirts on that front!
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Wow, congratulations on being married so long!  27 years in todays society is a lifetime!!
