Weak in the knees.........

Buttercup, a barn kitty
A dreary, rainy morning here in the Northeast. It's been raining steadily overnight and everything is saturated with water. Yesterday Tom and I worked on the cows run-in shed, repairing and replacing sills and replacing gravel around the bottom to prevent further water damage from winter snow. We also cleaned out the goat barn and the goat yard. We were pleased to accomplish that much before the rains arrived.

Today, I have the day off. I have a date with the oral surgeon early this morning. Lucky me. About the only thing that makes me weak in the knees other than my husband is the dentist :) I have no reservations admitting that I am about as scared as you can get! I have no fear of the pain, it's just something about a person working on the inside of my mouth that sends me over the edge.
I'm lucky.....I have good teeth. This is my first cavity in 40 years. Of course, it's in a wisdom tooth, of which I have them all. After today, I will not. So..........no coffee for me this morning. That in itself is enough to ruin my day :( Think good thoughts for me. I'm going to need them.

Wishing you all a good day ~ I'll see you in a day or two.

It'll be okay. ;-) I hate the dentist too. Just make sure you do everything they tell you, so it heals well, and you don't get a dry socket. I just had two more extractions a week or so ago, and am now healing so I can be fitted for a partial plate. Take care of yourself.

Oh, be brave, friend! Wisdom teeth are a biggee, but it will be over soon. Do as Tammy suggests and try to avoid dry socket or any other yucky stuff. I also recommend taking the pain meds as necessary. It will be over soon. Feel better!

Carnation Instant Breakfast was great after oral surgery..I liked the chocolate. Easy to drink & fills you up. Wishing you a fast recovery.

I envy you the "no-discomfort" part of going to the dentist. I am ALWAYS uncomfortable! One dentist finally figured out that I need an elephant dose of injectable anesthesia to deaden my tooth nerves, and laughing gas really helps with the anxiety that has resulted from too many visits to the dentist.

I hope all goes well with you and your recovery is quick. I had all my wisdom teeth out when I was 19. You'll be smiling again in no time:)
