spontaneous dental hydroplosion

I think I might possibly have self-diagnosed my dumb week long low grade fever. I am betting it's tooth related! I am headed into the dentist at 9 am to see if I am right. I am really NOT a fan of going to the dentist, but for once I'm looking forward to the visit. If I have missed the mark, I have a 4 pm appointment with my general practice doctor. I am fully prepared for him to say I am dehydrated (though I am not seeing the evil dr. z) so I am chugging water in preparation for my rebuttal to the standard office diagnosis. I'll be strong this time, I promise! I'm even ready to take some nasty blood tests in hopes of putting an end to this ick asap. Mostly, I am looking forward to the END OF THE WHINY POSTS which seem to have taken over my little blog. I am betting you are, too.

Your prayers, please. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, but this really is le poo. I made it through a staff meeting and registering my son for EIGHTH GRADE before I had to give up and climb back into bed in exhaustion. I chatted with S4J tonight for a whole 3 seconds before I burst into tears about being She was so good to me, and God is being so faithful. I do believe that He's in control, and I know that this is a big fat nothing compared to what the Biagis are going through with the 2 cases of leukemia in their home, or Sheryl with her constant vertigo, or Greg Laurie's family after losing a son, or my friends whose marriages are falling into pieces or who are losing their homes, but all the same, I'm getting really weary here. I would love your prayers, please- and while you're at it, would you please lift up the people I just mentioned too?

In the meantime, I'm counting my blessings of health and dental insurance, a car to take me to people who can fix me, friends to pray, a family to love, and the hope of eternity.

This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls.
It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.

Hebrews 6:19

PS- the first person who correctly identifies the two pop culture quotes (and where they are from) in this post gets 10 bonus entries into my drawing.

I really hope that all goes well this morning. Up and at 'em early here in beach land and I'll pray for you now. It stinks to not feel so good.

You are sweet sweet girl. I don't want to see you down. :)

Let us know.

Praying for you today! Hope you're up & about soon.

Jenster said...

You are so stinkin' cute!! I'm praying for you, my friend. Praying this gets figured out. Low grade fevers just seem to suck the life right out.

I'm guessing one pop culture reference is "le poo". I have no idea what it's from, but the teens at church say that. Napolean Dynamite?? I don't remember it, but the brilliance of the movie left me in a daze.

After that I've got nothin'.

Tracy said...

I do pray that you get an answer today. And I pray that you can start to feel REALLY well soon!

Gretchen said...

Praying you well and for those listed, too.

I'm stumped on the pop culture, my friend. xxxooogretchen

Suzanne said...

The problem with being a blogfriend from far away is that I can't give you a hug. Praying for you and hoping that whatever is going on will be completely healed SOON!

Suzanne said...

Spontaneous Dental had me kinda freaked out with that self-diagnosis till I googled it. Did you know that if you google it now, your blog is #7 down on the list?

Are both the pop culture references from "The Office"?

Wendy said...

oh...that hardly seems fair (re: the pop culture references)...i know exactly what they were and where they are from...i giggled at both! so sick! haha...anyway...i think i'm too 'inside' to actually answer here so i'll wait to see if anyone else gets them. clever tho...i'll give you that! ;o)

feel better sis!

truth said...

Well, I hope you get answers soon. I usually have a sinus infection that comes out of no where when I'm running a fever as such. But dr.'s typically won't diagnose it as such.

Suzanne said...

Wait a the other one really as simple as Dr. Evil from Austin Powers??

If so, I guess I did need that nap. :)

Praying that the dr. you see today is angelic!

His Girl said...

the office was right- but i dont have dental hydroplosion after all. i'll hit the dr today at 4

nope, i've never seen an austin powers movie

keep trying. :)

Sheryl said...

Okay, so first a confession....I was reading your post and thinking "you should try being me" and then did I get a God spanking when you mentioned that what you're going through is nothing compared to me!! So, first, forgive me and second any time we are not living life as we know it, it stinks and it's hard!!

I look forward to hearing if you self diagnosed yourself correctly!! And I pray you feel better soon...really I do, really.

I know I don't know you at all, but I found your blog when I searched for spontaneous dental hydroplosion. I love The Office and I know that "le poo" is a Friends reference. Rachel Green had a dog with that name that died during the show and Pheobe refers to the situation as being "le poo right now, but that it would get better". I hope your health problem has been resolved by now. I got a chuckle out of the pop culture references and was glad to discover you didn't REALLY think you had spontaneous dental hydroplosion.
