Craziness abounds...

It has definitely been one of those weeks, and it seems like it continues - with a stream of numerous doctor's appointments that feel endless. Almost two weeks ago, I was battling a tooth infection, which landed me in Urgent Care. Of course antibiotics followed, but I have still not been able to get in to see a dentist. It appears it has to be almost an emergency for dental work. 😞

Just this last week, my son had to visit Urgent Care because he thought he had sprained his foot and he could barely walk on it. Turned out to be a bacterial skin infection in his foot and they ended up hospitalizing him for observation and putting him on a high does on antibiotics through an IV. After several x-rays and MRIs, the infection turned out to be none other than cellulitis. The strange thing is, you usually get this type of infection from bacteria entering either a wound, or an animal bite - which my son had neither of. 🙁 It actually baffled the doctors that they could find nothing on his foot indicating this. He was finally able to come home and is on another round of antibiotics, with a follow up visit this Tuesday. The swelling and redness in his foot has definitely subsided, so that tells me the antibiotics are working.

Just scheduled a well check for my daughter too, and she is being referred to both a cardiologist and neurologist. Here we go again. I am so scared that her anxiety will go through the roof if they do a stress test on her. She is already on three different types of meds. We will see. Prayers would be nice.

Tooth infections are horrid!

Ugh! I really did get my mom's teeth. It seems that I am dealing with a tooth issue every year. One day I am just going to have the rest pulled and just get dentures. Fillings, root canals, crowns, etc. seem to have been my life these years, and honestly - I am so done. 

I ended up at Urgent Care because my jaw was swollen and I was in horrible pain from my ear, sinuses, you name it. Just got off a regimen of pain killers and antibiotics and praying that I can get in to see about getting these two molars pulled that are giving me grief. With this pandemic, they are only doing urgent dental procedures. Ugh. 😞

Friday Five - Just Vegging

  It's time for Friday Five

Yes, it's Saturday but...


  1. What’s your favorite root vegetable, and what’s your favorite way to eat it?
    Carrots! I ❤️ me some carrots! I buy whole carrots only. The taste of the ones already peeled and cut is blah to me. LOL. I peel, wash, cut them into slices, and dip them in a cold ranch dressing for a great snack. They are also one of my favorite sides - steamed (tender with a bit of a crisp) and drizzled with garlic butter!

  2. What’s your favorite leafy green, and what’s your favorite way to eat it?
    I am not a huge fan of leafy greens, but I do enjoy a good Chicken Caesar salad with fresh cut romaine lettuce (center cut out), and a creamy Caesar dressing. Oh, and add sunflower seeds!

  3. What’s your favorite legume, and what’s your favorite way to eat it?
    Green beans! One of my fondest memories is picking fresh green beans from my grandfather's garden with my mom. Afterwards we would go home and snap them. My mom made the best green beans, and my daughter and I enjoy doing this together as well.

  4. What’s your favorite vegetable to put on a pizza?
    Um, well, I don't really eat veggies on my pizza, but I have had a pretty good one that had roasted chicken and red bell peppers on it once. My favorite pizza though is of the Hawaiian style - yes I eat mine with Canadian bacon and PINEAPPLE. 😄

  5. What’s your favorite fruit to eat in a green salad?
    I don't eat fruit on my salad, but I have eaten one with mandarin oranges.
