The Wisdom Tooth Saga Continues...

Well here is the rest of the story of my on going drama with my wisdom teeth hehe! I sure am feeling grateful to be in God's hands surrounded by his perfect timing and divine will. I once again sparked up yet another infection in my mouth where my wisdom teeth were pulled. This has been a very painful experience. For weeks now I have been on my oral surgeon that I felt like I was coming down with an infection. I think I had been in his office at least once a week and he kept telling me no that it looks fine. At one point I spoke with another doctor on call who prescribed me a very mild antibiotic but I knew it was not going to do anything. The first antibiotic helped very minimally but in the back of my mind I had this feeling that all it was going to do was cause it to become a raging infection.

So sure enough yesterday I knew it was getting ugly my mouth began to swell with much pain. But I feel blessed with how it is all turning out. I was able to get in with my old dentist here in NY and my Dad was able to help out with the children. Looks like I had a socket filled with pus *lovely I know* and so the dentist used this needle like syringe to flush it all out with a peroxide solution. Which was a pretty awful experience with just the most raw pain to follow. I now have some nice strong penicillin in hand and I am praying for a swift recovery with hopefully some relief from this pain, swelling, and exhaustion the tell tale signs of infection.

But God is so good, I was so thankful to be home and be seen by a dentist that did not just send me home again, the dentist even waved all the xray fees since I am no longer eligible for them because I have already had a ton. And it has been a blessing to have the extra helping hands of family around.

I would like to share with you some snapshots from around the area we are staying in.
Over the weekend we went to a Blues Festival that Adrian's mother helped organize. There was some fabulous music and lots of bikers. Not quite the crowd though for Adrian and I, although we enjoy biking we are first Christians and the Biker crowd seemed a little to intense for us. In California we are hoping to hook up with a group called Biker's for Christ that we have been hearing about.
Look at all those motorcycles ours was in there somewhere!

And here are some snap shots of Buffalo New York, some of the Art I spotted while driving around town. Buffalo is a wonderful city for artists it reminds me some of Seattle, you will see some punk rockers but I love how freely people express there creativity even if it is in the form of pink hair hehe! Being an artist and a creative person myself I love environments that support artists and encourage them.
Buffalo also has fabulous architecture which I when I am feeling better will definitely get some shots of to share!






After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector by the name of Levi sitting at his tax booth. "Follow me," Jesus said to him, and Levi got up, left everything and followed him.
Luke 5:27-28


  1. I am so sorry you have had such pain and yuckiness with your teeth and wisdom teeth! I had my wisdom teeth out at 18 years old, and it wasn't fun at all! I hope you recover quickly ~ Have a wonderful week!

  2. Dear Heather,

    I hope you're tooth's better now~Tooth pain is just too close to your brain! Ouch! I've used oregano oil when I felt like my teeth were going to get infected. As long as I was diligent, it kept the infection at bay.

    Buffalo is beautiful; my mother-in-law was raised there, but I haven't seen many pictures of it.

    Oh yes, we received Anna's letter (I was going to tell you on Facebook, but since I'm here. . . ), and loved it!



  3. I'm so glad you were able to get relief for your tooth -- or lack of :o). Any pain involving the head is excruciating! I'm glad you have family around to help out too!

    Buffalo looks very interesting!! I think we're coming that way mid-end Oct, we'll have to stop and have a little stroll. I would love to do an urban photo shoot on anyone of those walls!

    Blessings and Prayers!


Thanks For leaving your thoughts...Have a blessed day!
