I have had a few rough days and have slowed down some on blogging. Here's why...Some of you know that I fell up the stairs a little over a week ago.I was bringing groceries into the house when ...right at the last step onto the main floor...Christy's cat ran right in front of me and my body was already headed to the top floor.:( I fell hard on both of my knees...hands full of grocery bags....and gradually my back became out of alignment.All the way to my neck and I started having headaches again.So....I went to the Chiropractor Monday and he adjusted me.I felt much better after that but was soo sore..I rested and kept ice on my back and neck. I took it easy on Tuesday.
Before the trip to the Chiropractor...I had been getting some much needed Dental work done.I had an appointment with the Dentist yesterday and it was decided to pull the bad tooth...and then eventually....after it heals...get a partial that will fill all the gaps (have had a couple other teeth pulled before) on the bottom row.:) I was told..since I get dry socket really baby it yesterday and to not bend forward or allow my blood pressure to go up. This would keep the blood clot from coming loose and coming out of the socket.Which is what a dry socket is. Jim is THE BEST thing that has happened to me besides Jesus saving me.:) He wouldn't allow me to do ANYTHING yesterday after the tooth was pulled.:) He made a casserole and an apple cobbler for our supper (with a few instructions) and even served it to me.:) Every time I would get up to do something...he would tell me I am suppose to be resting.... "I'll do that". He even cleaned the kitchen up and got the dishes running in the dish washer for me. Every time I would get the mirror to see how my socket was looking..he would say "Leave it alone"!! Bossy thing!!!!LOL He told me he just didn't want me to get dry socket. How SWEET is that? :)
The gum hurts some today from the tooth being pulled..but so signs of a dry socket!! YAY!! :) Thank you LORD!! and my honey too!!:)

If you got this far ...thank you soo much for taking the time to read...that means you are interested in what I have to say....and that means a LOT to me.:)

Good man Jim, we ladies don't alway listen as we should. Valinda I wish you a speedy recover from your pulled tooth. Be careful of your back, it sounds so painful.

Poor thing! First the faall and all discomfort(to say it mildly) from that, and now the tooth stuff too!
Your Jim is a blessing, such a good soul!
One thing is for sure, I think. When you get your partial, to replace the pulled out teeth, you will also feel much better, believe me.
But first it all has to heal, so take it really easy, give it all time to heal!
I suppose your knees look all coloured up LOL
It must be very painful/
Just take care of yourself, it will help for speedy recovery if you just don;t move around too much and take lots of rest.!
Be a good girl!!
Have a lovely weekend, give Jim an extra hug for being so sweet to you!

Oh Val ... I haven't visited for quite a while and I'm so sorry to hear you are having problems. Hang-in their girl and with the Lord's help and your DH, you'll soon be feeling well again! :)

Sorry for the error - "their" rather than "there." Hopefully, the thought is more important than the words. :)

My dear, sweet Valinda, I have completely missed the news of your fall sweetheart and had to do a double-take when I read that you fell "up" the stairs! I SO know that little number and it's not amongst my favorite dance routines.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery from both the fall and your "much needed" dental work darlin'. I've been there and am there once again and hoping to be accommodated sometime this year!

We are TRULY blessed to have such adoring, loving, kindhearted gentlemen in our lives! I'm not quite sure what I would do without my "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer" as my father used to refer to himself!

Take care love and hope to find you "feeling groovy" again soon!

Love and hugs,
Linda :D

P.S. Great scraps of your new walkway - love it! Oh, and I actually headed over here after chuckling at your reply to Kim's computer woes!!! You are TOO funny girl! I am trying hard to do a little catching up with y'all this weekend before I go into hibernation mode to finish up some WAY overdue projects before the end of the month! Story of my life, eh? MWAH!
