First the good. Remember my bad tooth? that looked like this:
Well today I went back to the dentist and after some drilling, they were able to tell the cavity wasn't near the pulp so they just filled it for me. YAY! now it looks like this:
Such a load off my mind. Except my mouth is SO numb right now and I am so hungry... all I can eat is soup.. nom nom nom... I have a bit of a drool thing going on, on the right side of my mouth.. it's not pretty. And dang if they aren't a tad on the rough side at this dental clinic.. feel like I got punched in the mouth, my lips feel all bruised. Tried to kiss hubby but I couldn't feel it and all he got was drool.
Now for the bad news. Both my Hubby and Dad are soon to be going in for some major surgery. My Dad is getting an aortic aneurysm removed, and Hubby has to have the AICD put in. Which is an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. Basically it's a mini defibrillator that keeps the heart beating regular. The AICD is one step away from getting a heart transplant. But there is a small chance that once this device is implanted, hubby wont be needing the transplant for a while, and in some cases patients haven't needed a transplant at all. We are not that hopeful though as HUbby's heart is pretty stuffed.
So both Hubby and Dad are just waiting for the operation dates. It's frustrating, not knowing. I want to plan things. Hubby is going to be laid up for a few months, while things settle down. He isn't allowed to do much at all. He can't even lift his arms above his shoulders.
Because of all this, we have to put off our little trip in Anna Cabana for a while.. just until all this is over, and we can get some things done to the car and the caravan.
We have started a little store at the local markets. We are selling bits and pieces we no longer need, and also some new things. I am making a few crochet things and hubby is importing stuff like guitar accessories. So far my crochet tea towels have proved to be very popular. I think people like the nice bright colours I use. I am including some new things next time. I made some vintage look crochet rose rings, and some crochet wriggle book worms for the kids. They are a lot of fun to make and are pretty quick to whip up. I give them big googley eyes to.
How cute are these?!
I love making these cuties :)
I've also done some nice little original paintings to sell. I have taken over the garage and it is now my studio/girl cave... Hubby is not getting it back... MUWHAHAHAHAHAAA...!
Anyway...must go.. try to eat something.. soup time :) And it's starting to hurt like a SOAB.. pain med time...
