I'll be away from my blog for the rest of the week

My dental issues have reached a point where I need an emergency extraction this week, even without clearance from my doctor. I've had an infection for a week. I had to go to urgent care over the weekend to get a rx for antibiotics. Still in pain. Not my best week. Anyway, I won't be posting the rest of the week. But I'll check back in next week. In the meantime, please say a prayer for me. Thank you, friends.

I hope you all have a wonderful autumn weekend!

Update: My oral surgeon now says she can't get me in right away (like she had originally told me if things got bad) and I'm on a cancellation list. I'm now trying to find another reputable oral surgeon who could do the kind of specialized work I need sooner than 2 weeks out. (It's a little more than a simple extraction, it involves my sinus cavity, too.) For those of you praying, thank you.

Monday, Nov. 13 update. I'll be back near the end of this week. It's been a rough 2 weeks and I'm not very communicative right now. Thank you all for your continuing prayers and thoughts.


  1. I'm so sorry that your dental problems are so tough. Hopefully the antibiotics will take care of it. Praying for you to get better soon! I wanted to pass on that Winco Edmonds has loaves of oat bread for 25 cents and all the kinds of pumpkins are $2.48 no matter how big the pumpkin is. This info is for which ever family member is taking care of shopping while you are recovering.

  2. Praying for you as you navigate the logistics of getting the care you need, as well as for your extraction. Take the time you need to recover.

  3. Lili, I will keep you in my prayers for this to be handled as soon as possible and that you can begin to feel better soon.

  4. Prayers will be continuing for an extraction asap and a full and quick recovery! Hugs

  5. Dental pain is some the worst around. I hope you can get your work done soon and praying for a speedy recovery for you.

  6. I've been thinking about your dental and medical situation, hoping it is better. I am praying for your comfort and safety. Sorry this has been so difficult.

    1. Hope you will be better soon,

  9. Thinking of you as you continue to heal.


  10. Said a prayer for you Lili, dental pain can be a lot to deal with. But, I know that soon you will be feeling better. Just stay strong! I too, am not impressed with your dentist. Cari

  11. Sorry for the medical rigmarole, Lili, here's hoping it all gets resolved very soon. In the meantime please know we are all wishing the very best for you -- and we miss you...!
