Saturday Centus - Everything depended...

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week forty-four of Saturday Centus.

I apologize for my lateness in reading the last two weeks links. This bone infection is really kicking my jaw, and not in a good way! I should be caught up this weekend though! Thanks for your patience.

I have to say how impressed I am with the grenade posts. I noticed midway through this week I never even posted my own grenade or ATM stories. I'm all kinds of 'with it' around here lately!

In keeping with my inability to think up anything evil again, this weeks prompt is:

Everything depended upon this single card...

You can use this prompt and UP TO 100 additional words to write a story of your choosing in any style of writing you prefer. Just keep your story PG and try to visit as many of the other links as you can!

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday! And I promise, I'll be caught up my reading really soon!

Hi, Jenny ~ I am in empathy about your jaw. One year - I was in my 40s - my dentist said, "You don't need any other work this year, so let's knock those wisdom teeth out." Hm, OK. I'd seen Ex and many others go through it. It didn't seem too daunting. Um. Dry socket. All four. I was old (comparatively) with dinosaur bones. It took me 8 weeks to feel human. <3 <3

Sorry you are still under the weather, no wait...your weather is fantastic...sorry your jaw is still not behaving as it should...I hope you feel better soon....take time for you and enjoy your weekend! Would a glass of fine wine help, or maybe not if you're on medicine, but there are some tasty non-alcoholic wines to sip....! Take care Jenny!

Rinse you mouth with wine several times a day, and be sure to swallow it afterward!

Kat said...

Sorry to hear that your jaw is still giving you trouble. I like Judie's advice! Thanks for a great prompt, this one was a lot of fun for me! Kat

My 12-year-old has had a bone infection migrating around the bones in her legs and feet for five months now! She has been to school fewer than 10 days since 10/29/10. She has a picc line in her chest, heavy IV and oral meds, and gets better...only to get worse. It's definitely an anaerobic infection, possibly mixed with an aerobic infection...ALL from a loose tooth that finally had to be pulled in October when it wouldn't fall out on its own. The jaw is the normal site for these kinds of things in adults, but the long bones is a likely place for them to end up in children. It has been a nightmare, though having her home prompted us start our blog.

I pray for fast healing for you. Bone infections are horrible and oh-so-hard to get rid of!

Dear Jenny,
When you wrote your post about maybe getting a root canal and ending up with an extraction, it reminded me of what happened to me about a year ago. Half of a molar broke off and the dentist looked at it and decided that it had to be removed. But he couldn't do it himself. All attempts failed. I had to go to a specialist who after three or four injections of local anasthetic and cut open the area where the tooth once was and lifted out the long roots, that were still intact.
I was not happy about this because the gape in my mouth causes me to bite my tongue and I can't chew on that side of my mouth.
But I had no infection, so I am wondering if another kind of dentist might have been about to put a crown on it. My grandfather was a dentist. I wished that he could have helped me.

A replacement tooth with a titinium screw implant costs at least 20,000 Swedish Crowns [over 3,000 USD] and insurance does not cover it because it is so far back and so large. They set a limit on paying for the front teeth including tooth number five and this is tooth number six. So for cosmetic reasons, it is not that visible. I just have trouble chewing my food.

I am so sorry to here about your bone infection. I hope and pray that you get good help with that, and recover quickly. But it may take some time.

I don't know about Judie's suggestion to rinse your mouth with wine! There are dental rinses, but if it has gone into the jaw bone, a mouth wash is not enough. Wine may drown your sorrows - for a time!

Whatever you do, get plenty of rest. Take vitamin supplements too. If you are not up to your memes, let someone else help you until you are. What about Mr. Steve? Or just take it slowly, very slowly.

Love, hugs and prayers,
