Mom had the surgeon’s check-up yesterday, and the wound has healed well. And the biopsies they took during the surgery, are all clean! 😀 And the surgeon said that the risk of the breast cancer renewing is low 😀 And she also said that it’s there and there whether Mom needs to have radiation treatment or not – we don’t know yet; Mom has a an appointment with the oncologist who decides what treatments she needs a week from Monday.
This is about as good a result as we hoped for 😀
I have opened another tribute fansite 🙂
Latest news, media and more on actress Jewel Staite, best know for her work on scifi tv series Firefly and Stargate: Atlantis.
I just got back today, our plans changed a little so I was a day longer. We had great time, Mom and I, and I personally loved it that I was able to spend 3 of the heatwave days in her home, which is a lot cooler than mine 😀
The new internet connection seems to be working like a charm 😀 and I’ll be getting back to normal schedule tomorrow 🙂
FYI – I’ll be away from Monday morning to propably late Tuesday night (GMT+2 time zone). I’m also switching ISPs (yay! the uploading has been a pain in the ass the last 7 days – the connection likes to die several times an hour) and naturally the planned installation day (which I can’t choose) falls to when I’m not home to verify it immediately. According to them, it should happen all automatically without problems but based on past experience, I’m not counting on it.
So if I disappear for a while, it’s because they messed it all up and need to send people to un-mess it, and I’ll be back as soon as I can.
And the tooth ache continues – it’s been on since Tuesday. At first I didn’t think it was notable but it’s now getting on my nerves. It’s not really bad ache – just bad enough that I’m aware of it all the damn time. And it could be my imagination, but I think it’s a tiny shade worse today than yesterday 🙁
It’s just that I don’t know if it’s normal for it to still ache! If I knew everything was alright and it’s normal and will end sooner rather than later like in a day/three days/a week or something like that, I feel I could stand it. But I’m worried that there’s still infection left there even though I don’t have any of the symptons – but I didn’t have first time either!
I also think maybe I’m blowing the tooth ache out of all proportion because I’ve begun to realize just in these last few weeks or so, that I don’t deal that well with pain anymore, because of the 2,5 years lasting chronic migraine that finally is gone (knock on wood!) and now that I’ve been pain free for like 4 months apart from the migraine attacks (lot less intense than they used to be) I don’t have patience to deal with new continuing pain and just want it to not hurt and be comfortable. And also, for all I know this could be bad pain but because the chronic migraine and the migraine attacks used to be a million times worse than this pain, I don’t feel like it’s bad or even really worth to complain about… because compared to those? This is nothing.
So I don’t what what I’m feeling is reasonable pain and to expected after tooth removal and infection, or whether I should do something about it again.
And why does it have to be the end of the week again – I either have to get in for a check up tomorrow, or wonder through the weekend. I almost wish it’d get really really kill me now horrible because then at least I’d know it’s not healing as it should!
The other tooth removal is scheduled for July 5th, and at the rate this is going, this one is still going to hurt and drive me crazy at that time!
The spot where the tooth was removed last Monday started to ache Wednesday/Thursday but I thought it was because I was starting to eat solids again and it always started after eating. But Saturday and yesterday it ached all the damn time, and then last night, it started to throb when I did some light cleaning in the bathroom because some men were coming in today to do some installations there. So I called it in today, got an appointment to check it out and good thing I did – there was an infection, the nerve endings were exposed and no sign whatsover of the blood clot that should’ve stopped that from happening D:
It was the same Dentist today who had removed it, and this time I think he directly gave me a lot more of the local anaesthesia because he only gave me one shot and still it’s just as numb as last Monday. He cleaned it out and put in some pain killer thingy that looked like foam rubber and tasted awful. He said that if the ache returns, I need to contact them again.
So now left side of my face is numb again, talking is so-and-so, eating/drinking etc. is forbidden for another hour or so – but the ache is blissfully gone! 😀
Just watched the season finale of The Borgias and… how on earth did they manage to make it boring, considering the subject matter?! The first couple of episodes were okay and seemed to promise excitement and dark things to come. But somehow, by episode four, they had diluted it 🙁 And each episode thereafter was more boring than the one before. Almost didn’t make it through episode 9. Sometimes it felt they were actually making a comedy but that never lasted for more than a scene and then it was back to half-hearted intrigue. And Cesare? He should be a really interesting character, but instead he’s a total yawn fest – and swings around from one characterization to another and yet another depending on what the plot requires of him. Ugh.
I hear there will be a second season. At this point, the costuming is pretty much the only reason to tune in.
Mom’s operation went well and she got back home yesterday as planned. So far she hasn’t had much pain, and she’s feeling alright. The arm pit things were clean and they didn’t have to remove any of them so that’s awesome 😀 but there are other biopsies that we’ll get the results of three weeks from now before we know for sure whether it had spread or not. But so far so good and we’re taking it one step at a time 🙂 But I am very relieved 😀
In other news…
A couple of weeks ago, I adopted a fansite for Game Of Thrones, the HBO tv series. Didn’t announce it until Gertie bought a domain for it: Game Of Thrones Fan. Game Of Thrones is currently the tv series I most look forward to each week 😀
Also, it took a few days, but Gertie finally renewed the domain v-fans.net so the site is back and working again!
I’ve ordered a dedicated ADSL to my appartment because my current one, which is a free one offered by my appartment building, has slowed down unbearably. The new ADSL should be installed on June 7, and it all should happen in such a way that I don’t loose internet accessibility at any point, I’ll believe it when I see it. So I might disappear for a bit if something goes wrong with it.
I had the dentist’s appointment today, and he didn’t even try to convince me to have root canal instead of removing the tooth 😀 So the first of the two teeth is out now 🙂 Took 55 minutes (which is interesting, because a friend of mine had her wisdom teeth removed, 2 of them at one time, and she said it took like 10 minutes.
The dentist said my bone is so strong, that it doesn’t want to give up the teeth. The teeth broke, and he spent like half an hour removing the bit that was left.
At first it was a little uncomfortable, but he gave me so much local anaesthetic that once it really took hold, I didn’t feel much of anything but tugging/pushing/pulling and heard the drilling. It’s still on, but I wonder how much it’ll hurt after the anaesthetic ends.
The second teet will be removed in July, and this time is a 6o minute appoitment 🙂
I had all my wisdom tooth removed over 20 years ago when I was a teenager; I can’t remember if it was as hard work then as it was now. I had 4 of them; they took two on one time and the other two on another.
The domain v-fans.net, which fan-sites.org owns, has expired. I have notified Gertie and I’m soon she’ll renew it as soon as she sees the message.
