Glad I Like Soup

The cracked molar was too close to the nerve to be filled and I said no thanks to a root canal.  So after going through the grinding process that revealed the nerve location, the dentist moved on to extraction.  My dentist is a short little girl and it was a struggle for her to get it out. Truly I felt as if my head was going to pop off in the process but it remained in place. Afterwards I was exhausted and fell asleep for several hours which made for a restless night filled with pain and nightmares. Still whacked out this morning but grateful for some food as I hadn't eaten since early Monday. Then more sleep. Starting to feel better at last,  but not nearly good enough to suit me. Worse thing is my right hip is excruciatingly painful making it a challenge to walk. Who knew? I didn't expect it to be so bad. Did pulling on my neck screw up my hip?

And on other fronts, my brother was released from the hospital and refused to go to rehab aka nursing home. His daughter was driving up from her home in Dallas and got as far as KC before bad roads stopped her. I am unclear as to what actually happened in the night, but none of it was good. Thankfully home health was able to come and help him and get the house cleaned up and things back on track. His daughter should be there within the hour and they will rethink his decision to be home on his own. Pretty much what I expecteded would happen but wish it had been different.

Snow expected tonight so I may be stuck out here in the boondocks on this icy hilltop which in its own way isn't so bad. I'm pretty useless at the moment anyway.

Not useless, but it might be a good time to take care of you. It sounds like your brother is being well attended.

Indeed you are correct.

Geez, when it rains it pours. And snows, and freezes. I hope you feel better soon and your brother's situation settles down.

That seems to be how it goes, but this afternoon things are looking better for both of us.

Ouch, get better soon! *hugs*

Isn't there any way for your brother to get help while living at home?

Yeah, a big ouchie, had extractions before but this one wss ugly.

And yes, home health provides some services but only 3 days a week.

Sorry to hear you're in dental hell and suffering from it. I read where it cracked when you were at the party for your granddaughter, that is just insult to injury is it not? BTW, the big cookie looked so good.

For real it was insult added to injury, I couldn't eat cookie...they told me it was good lol

Hope you are feeling better. I’d say yes to the question could pulling on your neck bother your hip. I have spurs and degenerative disc issues in my neck. When I first went to the chiropractor about it I was having some arm and finger pain too and before even looking at an x-ray he knew which vertebrae were causing my pain as each one has nerves that go to certain areas of the body. I bet one of them goes to the hip.

Thanks for that info, good to know. As the extraction site improves the hip is getting better too. And yes, finally today I am almost back to my abnormal norm.
