There are lot more Bloggers who I had wanted to honor in my Awards post, and more categories that I wanted to include, but I was not feeling well and ended up cutting the post short. I feel bad for leaving off some faves who should have been recognized but weren't, hopefully I'll do better next time.
After nearly a full week on antibiotics, my Dental Hell is as bad as ever, the tooth and sinus are still painful and all pressurey, and, the fevers, chills, body aches and exhaustion are really doing a number on me. One thing I did notice though was that about a day or so after I began the antibiotics, I would have a period of a few hours a day when I felt better, not just the tooth and sinus, but also the all over pain that I've been complaining about for months which cannot be attributed to my existing nerve damage problems was also lessened, and I had energy to do some things around the house which I hadn't enjoyed for a long time. Sadly, those little waves of relief were short lived and haven't visited me for the past few days, but it does lead me to believe that some of the recent misery is due to something that can be treated, perhaps there is something going on elsewhere in my body besides the tooth and sinus causing the trouble and maybe more or better antibiotics can take care of it, or perhaps the Lyme Disease is back.
My friend 1389 explained in a comment to my last dental post that she once had exactly the symptoms I'm suffering from and it was due to a non-dental abscess, it is the first time I have seen anyone else describe first hand experience of how I have been feeling. I will call my dentist to see if I should do another round of the same antibiotics or if he can suggest a better one today, and if I am not feeling better soon, I'll try to get to a regular doctor.
From the department of "it never freaking ends", we have no heat in my house at the moment (aside from a portable heater), because of some crap going on with the furnace that I do not understand. Luckily is is not too cold out today, just rainy. Over the past couple of months, we have had to repair the hot water heater, then this tank thingy that sits above the furnace to help pressurize the steam to heat the house or something, and now my furnace (or whatever is attached to it) has forgotten how to send heat to the radiators in the house, but we still have hot water at least. Fortunately, hubby is handy and will be able to fix it, but it will require buying parts, I don't know how much they'll cost, but it's another expense we can scarcely afford. The hits just keep coming and it seems to never freaking end. Speaking of hits, if you're in the mood to be helpful, please consider hitting my tip jar, because we really could use some help and honestly no amount is too small to be able to make a difference for me and my family.
But enough about me and my crankiness, let's check out some good stuff from some of our Blogger friends to lighten things up a bit...
The Mad Jewess has created a gorgeous and heavenly picture at her place, and she shares some lovely music videos. Go check them out. Also, she honors me in her sidebar with an awesome graphic which links to this blog when clicked:
Thank you, Donna!
The Daily Stink has something that is definitely NOT stinky for everyone's enjoyment, and to help us to carry on. See You've Got the Love and know that you do.
Woodsterman shares a story involving prayer, ice cream, and a precious young boy that you absolutely must read: Tear Jerker
Obama has a Democratic challenger, and he's a perfect fit for the party. He's also already taking primary votes from Barry! Learn more at Randy's Roundtable.
At the Jawa Report, a jihad pushing islamic cleric claims that pictures of his nearly naked daughter clutching her boobs (because she is a stripper and that's kinda what they do) is due to a Jewish conspiracy to make the terrorist Al Qaeda supporting preacher look bad. The girl certainly looks better than she probably did in a burka, and her father doesn't need any help looking bad, he already has demonstrated that he is a moron.
Mind Numbed Robot Loves Texas and tells us why.
I have yet succeed in dragging my besty Tlchimes over to the Right side of the political spectrum, but she is a lovable Wingless Moderate Extremist who is doing her best to care for her family, which includes precious children who have severe medical and special needs issues, and she is a shining light against the darkness in the city of Detroit. Please read her poem, Fire and Ice, and if you can, maybe throw a couple of bucks in her tip jar to help remind her that there are still good and caring people in the world. She uses her tip jar to help provide for the kids' considerable medical and other needs.
The Laughing Conservative has more details on perpetually angry looking Michelle Obama's reaction to the allegations that she is angry, HERE.
MOTUS has the scoop on where the "rumor" that Michelle Obama is "angry" came from, it was Barry who started it! Be sure to visit MOTUS and watch Michelle stomp out those rumors. Stomp stomp stomp!
The Pagan Temple has video of what happens when a lion meets a little girl, kind of reminds me of my house cats looking at my fish tank.
Last but not least, this post at iOwnTheWorld cracked me up. Gotta love that language barrier!
