Getting by with a little help from my friends.....

After another trip to the dentist yesterday, it was determined that part of my tooth is dying (is is losing its blood supply thus causing the intense pain) and needed an immediate root canal. So..................today is the day!! Ordinarily this would sadden me....but after the week I have had---I am overjoyed to know that the pain is almost outta here.

Until then, I am getting by with a little help from my friends:

(ETA: Me + Oxycodone= NOT Friends. Those suckers made me vomit. Nice, eh?)

I am having a hard time of this so I have given myself permission to take a few days off. I am still scheduled to head out of state on my sisters weekend get away this weekend so I am getting a few things done before I leave the family to fend for themselves.

There is so much I am behind on: dt assignments, thank you notes, comments on blogs, challenges I have missed.....but I am allowing myself to slack---just this once!

Thanks for understanding. Hoping to be back better than ever next week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Cammie, I hope you get to feeling better soon! That kind of pain is debilitating! I hope you get your root-canal ASAP and that your "friends" help you out in the mean time. Oxycodone made my oldest son throw up (post surgery for wisdom tooth removal) but my daughter can take it without any problems... which is a good thing she she take Oxycodone's sister, Morphine, daily.

Take all the time you need and I hope you have a lovely much-needed vacation.

(((gentle hugs)))

OH Cammie, GIRL! I hope you get better soon! By the way, I am not sure which OXY you got, but see if you got the low dose (m357 on the pill depending on manufacturer) or the higher (m358), get the LOWER and take a HALF pill every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, that is how I have to take them for migraines. It is the only thing that works for me! Feel Better girl and Come back with a vengeance! HUGS!

Nicole said...

OH, those M357/358 numbers are for generic hydrocodone, too. JUST ASK for a LOWER dose or try taking a HALF PILL every 1-2 hours of that prescription you already have there in the pic. That should work! Will pray for your surgery to go well!

Elena said...

Hope you will feel better soon and your surgery will go smoth!

Kristie said...

Sorry to hear you aren't back to normal yet. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hope it's better soon. My dentist appointment is this afternoon and hoping he can do it all in one visit. Fingers crossed! Have a wonderful weekend with your sisters and your "me" time!

Argh...so frustrating! Just when you have a nice weekend planned! At least you'll be getting 'fixed' before your fun times. Hope everything goes smoothly and you have a wonderful time this weekend! :o)

Hope you are feeling better! Take care and lay low!

Betty said...

Oh tooth pain is the WORST and most pills don't help that much. I hope your better soon and the root canal takes...I've had 3 fail and lost the tooth after that and a crown so not fun. 3 different dentists too and one was a specialist that only did root canals. Nothing like putting $2000 into one tooth and then having it pulled...think of all the stamp stuff you could buy!
Good luck and I hope you can enjoy your weekend.

Anita said...

I'm so sorry that you are having such trouble with your tooth. Hopefully after your root canal is done you will immediately feel better, and have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

You poor thing as everyone has said mouth/tooth pain is the worst. I know you will feel better after the root canal and I hope that happens soon. Pain meds can have an adverse effect on many people which only seems to make matters worse. Here's hoping for you to be pain free soon so you can get rid of your "leettle friends" Take care and feel better.

Gabriela said...

You're going to now need to remember that the next time someone asks you if you have any drug allergies that you have a stomach intolerance for codeine. Vicodin is another codeine based drug that will make you vomit instantly. I do hope you are able to rest from the awful pain soon. Endodontists are awesome.

So sorry to hear of your terrible tooth problems & the PAIN that goes with it. Hang in there & know I'mm thinking & praying for you. Hope you can at least enjoy your visit with your sister. Feel better soon. We'll miss you.

dpkennedy said...

Aww, I hope you are feeling better real soon! I am allergic to narcotics-while it didn't make me vomit, it did swell up my entire face and cover my body in huge itchy welts! So I feel your pain sista! Have a great weekend!

Pamela said...

Take the time you need to heal. My son can't take oxycodone either. He has epilepsy and the combination of that with his seizure meds makes him have some wild halucinations.

Rita said...

Michelle said...

Oh Cammie.. feel better soon. I know what your going through. I had a root canal a few weeks ago.. It only hurt a little bit during the second visit. NOTHING like what people said it was going to be. My dentist here in SA is a real miracle worker! Hope you feel better. I KWYM about the oxy it makes me the queen of hurl too...hee hee Take Care.. Michelle

Anita C said...

I know what you are going through Cammie, I had the same thing before I had my root canal done. I wish you the best of luck and a speedy recovery once it is all done :) It is such a joy once it is all done to live without pain again.

Diane said...

You deserve some time off, Cammie. Don't put yourself on no guilt trip, either. Get feeling better and enjoy your weekend.
