Just Relaxing.....

and enjoying the quiet and tranquil Sunday morning. Amber is here, but at almost 12, she is fairly quiet and really doesn't make much noise. She's a cuddler in the morning and will sit for a long time next to me or Bumpa in front of the fireplace just watching the fire and looking at television.....and she didn't even want cartoons on this morning. She wanted to watch the Discovery channel which is one of my favorites too!

Bumpa slept in for a change. He needed it since he worked 6 days this week and had more oral surgery done Thursday late afternoon. The only thing bad about sleeping in for him is that he went too many hours without his pain meds and now he will be miserable until the pain meds he just took, kick in! Poor man. We thought that the oral surgeries were all behind him and then he went for one simple little procedure that would have been nothing for him, and they end up cutting his entire upper gum from one side to the other and grinding some bone growths off. OUCH....AGAIN! Now, this time he is done. Because he won't let them in his mouth again....no matter what. He is hungry every couple hours because all he can eat is soup and milkshakes and neither of these stick with him very long. I'm spending most of my time in the kitchen making soup or cleaning up. I don't mind though, it's the least I can do for him! Besides bring him his next round of pain meds before the last ones wear all the way off!

Things will be better tomorrow, I'm sure.....at least I HOPE !!!

Boy that does sound relaxing! A fire...I haven't sat in front of a fireplace in years. Christmas Eve- I was at a friend's house. He had an outdoor fireplace. He bought it from Home Depot. It was pretty neat. Amber sounds like a great kid! I like the Discovery Channel too. I hope Hubby feels better real soon. Hugs!

Hope Bumpa is feeling better so. I use to work in the dental field. Is he taking anti inflammatory along with with pain meds. It's been awhile but I'm sure we use to recommend it.

My 11 year old is good at chilling with me too. Some things get better, some get worse, eh?

You are such a good nurse. Having oral surgery sure doesn't sound pleasant. Hope he feels better very soon.

Take care,
Hugs,

Damn...the poor man's mouth is turning into a goldmine. Wait..he had that work done late Thursday afternoon and went to work Friday morning?

And I thought I was the manly macho man....

Ah poor hubby....I hate the dentist I am dreading my visit and I know I need to go, but I keep putting it off. Glad you had fun with your granddaughter.

Happy Monday my friend....

Cheers

gosh ... i feel for him ... i've had so much work done in my mouth that it's the most valuable part of me!!! ;)

i've even broken a new crown - now my dental records indicate that only those most expensive crowns that take a looong time to make can be put on my teeth!!!
