Not a Textbook

Blog Post created by sweetplt on Jul 7, 2020

Hello Everyone at Ex’s...


That’s me, not a textbook case when it comes to anything medical.  I am so upfront and honest with Doctors when I first meet them and ask, “ Based on what I am telling you, can you take me on as a patient?  I will understand if you cannot”...I am failed by our medical people often.  


Anyways, I have another root canal coming up on Thursday which causes me days of sick.  I have trigeminal neuralgia from my Brain aneurysm surgery, so my face swells and is painful.  I cannot take anything but Tylenol (Anything else causes stomach issues) and ice so relief takes awhile.  I am not complaining, because I am used to pain.  That being said, I can’t tell you how much smoking would cause all these issues to be worse.  Today, I will remember all the things I am grateful for in my life.  Most of all, I am grateful that I can heal in my own home and have a good husband to help me out.  


What are you grateful for in your Life?  


Have a beautiful day and remember to count your blessings.
