Pitiparty for one

Okay so when did things change. It used to be the tooth fairy would bring you money for teeth and the tooth that was taken out didn't hurt so much. They pulled my wisdom tooth today when I say pulled I mean pulling it out with a f***ing hammer and chisel. I was bleeding like a pig that was being slaughtered and nearly choked on the blood and then I had to pay $150!!! When did we start paying the tooth fairy so we can be in horrendous pain?????????????? The dentist said to get the Vicodin filled and take it before the Novocain wears off. Of course there was an hour wait at the pharmacy and then I had to go to the bank and then I realized I forgot my antibiotics at the office. So by the time I got home and could take the pain meds I was in pain since the Novocain was long history. But the damn stuff didn't work not even a bit. So then I took some Advil nothing wait a few hours .... took some Tylenol 3 I still had .... still f***ing nothing. I am miserable and in pain and Grumpy is pulling a 13h shift not coming home till 7am!! Damn it!

On other news we have a family addition. Remember my friend AJ that passed away earlier this year? Well before she passed away she wanted to know where Shawnna would go so I had asked one of my host families that used to foster dogs if she'd take her in. She did and Shawnna had a ball with the kids and another dog and horses. About a month ago the lady's sister asked her to take in her dog until April next year and that Shepard mix kept fighting Shawnna so I was asked if I could take her a while or if I knew someone that could. Here are some pictures of all the critters from the last few days.

Here are Mac and Sassy taking it easy on the deck before I went to get Shawnna

I met the lady and Shawnna at a parking lot and she was so happy to see me it made my heart jump she hopped in my car before I was even done getting stuff out. Shawnna was the first dog I ever had when I watched her for AJ after her inital diagnosis and treatment. She is the reason I got Mac because I missed having a dog after AJ was well enough and took Shawnna back.

Here are the three ladies. Shawnna is in the middle

Here is Grumpy with the Ladies. Once again he is outnumbered! From left to right Shawnna, Sassy and Mac

Best buds Shawnna and Sassy napping

Misty decided that Shawnnas bed was hers and Shawnna decided to let her.
One of the girls at the restaurant said she'd love to take Shawnna but she is still working on her boyfriend who's house they'd be at. I would love to keep her but our city code doesn't allow more than 4 animals without special permission and frankly our house is not that big. The other thing is having her here makes me terribly sad because I am reminded of the friend I lost. I will keep her until I have found the perfect home for her - until then she is my doggy. And I mean mine she follows me everywhere and insists on sleeping next to my bed to the dismay of the cats.

Alright I got homework to finish and then I'll see if I can get some sleep with this throbbing pain.

oh man...wisdom teeth. Those suckers HURT to get pulled out,,cut out...blasted out...whatever they do to get those uge suckers outa your mouth..

I had a root canal years ago, and Vicodin did NOTHING for me. I don't get it...people get addicted to that stuff...why? Did nothing for me. Motrin did 800mg of it, but it helped a little bit.

Your dogs are beautiful and Shawnna is so lucky to have you! I wish I could take her, and Mac is cracking me up in that first picture!!!

You have such a big, caring heart.

Beth - yeah my advil did more than any of the other painkillers. You should see my living room, the cats on the couch with me and the pups are lying beside it.

Dan said...

Oh no! You had to go and talk about wisdom teeth extraction didn't you. I have to get THREE out next month!! NO!!

Nice doggies!

angel said...

oh no katy katy katy... you have all my sympathy girl- i do hope you're feeling a little better!
as for shawnna, its so sweet she remembered you & i do hope she finds a loving home soon!

Dino aka Katy said...

Dan - word of advice get them to give you general anesthesia and have them run the pain meds IV before you come out of it

Angel - well looks like she'll stay awhile longer that waitress fell through

jin said...

Oh! KAty!!!
Hope the tooth, or should I say the missing tooth, is better by now?!!?

Those are some fabulous looking dogs you have there tho...and they all seem to get along great!!!

Good luck with the rest of your week!

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - its getting there but I still can't open my mouth wide. As for the muds yeah they are doing well good thing since that waitress fell through and it looks like Shawnna will hang out for a while

And I thought we had a houseful of dogs!

I had my last wisdom tooth extracted and ran into some problems. If it still hurts in a few days, get back to the dentist quick as you can. Sometimes pieces of tooth get left behind or the bone dies and infection sets in. If you thought the initial extraction was bad, wait 'til you try an infection on for size!

Good luck!!

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - yeah I guess its save to say we got you beat add a chihuahua to that in December when my mom comes to visit and petsit.

please no horror stories. Its still hurting but not as much as it has I checked it our with a flash light and its swollen some parts still open

The Phosgene Kid said...

You'd think the chihuahua wouldn't last too long with the big dogs...

Sorry, didn't mean to alarm you about the tooth. I am sure it'll be ok. Oddly enough I was in Germany when I had my last wisdom tooth extracted...

jin said...





I had one ripple thingy already, but that was strictly for pictures to post on unplugged later!

The Phosgene Kid said...

I think Jin liked your gift. That was nice.

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - that's what I worry about when they are coming I am trying to get it into my moms head that my dogs may hurt the rat not on purpose but still

Jin - you are verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry welcome

Phos - ya think?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Hope you had a great weekend!! Get any time off???

Dino aka Katy said...

Phos - a little bit but not as much as I'd like
