I am feeling a little better, not much but a little. I have 4 days left of antibiotics to take. Hopefully by then I'll be 100%. Ok, so what is wrong? A severe infection in gums, ear and side of head into neck. Same side I had the cancer removed. It swelled so bad, I couldn't wear my glasses. The infection came from the 4 teeth yet to be pulled. Since I have no nerves there in my neck due to surgery, and can feel no pain on right side of face I did not know I had an infection until alot later. Since your brain is the hottest area of your body, due to heat rises, and an infection travels towards heat, well that's what happened. So, I have a 14 day supply of Zyvox 750mg, (I have generic brand) too long name to write lol. I take 1 twice a day. It is working. Swelling has gone down alot.
Since we no longer have dental insurance it is hard for me to get to the dentists again. I am researching different insurance companies to try to find an insurance we can afford. I could get insurance through husbands job, but if I do they'll take 160.00 a week out of his check just for the insurance, and we cannot afford to have that much taken. His last job only took 84.00 a week for insurance. And also, the insurance at Jims work, says they do not cover pre existing medical conditions. So, it wouldn't do me any good anyways. So, until I find better insurance that we can afford, I have to deal with what life hands me. The only pain I do feel is if I chew on the right side. So I avoid that area and chew on the left side where this is no teeth, lol. But everything I eat is cut small and is soft foods. Mainly I eat mashed potatoes, or pasta, or cold mellons such as cantalope or watermelon. And soup (creamed). Last night I made a big pot of Homemade Chicken and Dumplings (creamed) and I had no problem eatting it on left side. I also can eat Oatmeal or eggs with cheese. So, I'm not starving, so don't worry. Veggies are ok also, because after their cooked I can mash them. I'll be ok, don't worry.
The little boy Ayden is still not doing well. He has eatten a very small portion of 1 meal in the past week. The doctors are giving it another couple days, and if he doesn't eat, they'll be putting in a feeding tube. His fevers are anywhere from 101 to 104. His maternal grandmother has custody of him, because both his parents are drug addicts and are both in jail. He was at his paternal grandparents when he broke his arm in 2 places. This poor little guy has been through so much since birth. Please keep him in prayers. Also Linda Bradbury is having a test where they shock your heart. This is a dangerous test for her. Please keep her in prayer also.
I got yelled at by Nancy (my future sis in law). I told her about all the cleaning and scrubbing I did yesterday, and she yelled saying I do too much, even while I am not feeling well. But if I don't do it, it won't get done. Jim works all day, and I can't expect him to come home and clean too. I am taking it easy today. I will just make the beds, wipe down the bathroom and do the dishes. When I am done Rebecca and I are going to Tye Dye a couple shirts. That should be fun to do together, or will it, lol. I'll take before and after pictures, and show off our work or mess, lol.
I'm still in my pajamas, lol. I'll jump in shower real quick, get dressed and get started on the house work. Shouldn't take but about 30 minutes to get it all done.
Well, I finally got out all the invitations to the baby shower. I had 2 batches of them to mail. All total it cost me 100.00 just for invitations and the postage. Now all I need to worry about is seating and tables and decorations and food. Tomorrow I am going to The Party Store and getting decorations. It should be a nice shower, I hope. I want it to be nice, because it is Emmas last baby. She will be getting a tubal after the baby is delivered. I'm glad, she doesn't need anymore kids after this one.
Emma and Dan's 1 yr anniversary is coming up. I can't believe it's been a year already since they got married. I am so happy she has Dan in her life and married him. Her first husband was a real ass, and I hated him since the day she met him. But Dan, he is awesome. A hard worker, always willing to work over time at his job. He says Emma and the kids are the reason he gets up every morning for work, because he wants to make sure they have everything they need. I'll tell ya, he is a mother's dream of a son in law, and I'm really proud he is in our family. I'm having them over fordinner saturday. I am making Homemade Stromboli's. Dan didn't have any the last time I made them, so he'll be happy. I'll make about 9 of them this time, cause I know my son in law, he can eat. I am freezing one for them to take to Cape May. Their going to poppop Bill's for the weekend and I want to send one with them for him. I know he'll like that. I'll go shopping tomorrow for all the ingredients. And I want to bake them a cake. I have to go to Walmart also and get the 3 sizes in pans and cake separaters. It's gonna be a 3 tier wedding cake, beings the one I made when they got married was only a sheet cake. I spoil my family don't I? Yea, I do, but when I see how happy things I do for them makes them, then it is well worth the time and effort. And yes, there will be pictures, lol. I can't leave you guys out. I have my work cut out for me over the next few days, don't I?
Well, I'd better get this finished and posted so I can get busy. It's almost 2:pm. I hope all is well with you all. Take care and enjoy your day.
Love you all..................................
