Caught Off-guard and a huge THANKS!

Friends are amazing.  I was caught off-guard yesterday when a delivery was made to my home, not just any delivery....as I get UPS daily, but yesterday I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers.


I would like to thank my friends and Hero Hosti: Kelly, Kathy, Lin, Judy, Cathy, Lucy, Virginia, Tracey, Sarah, Tiffany, Karen, Donna, Lisa, Jenn and Deborah.  You girls made my day and I will treasure my gift for as long as I can keep it alive!  You ladies are so special! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  :o)

Okay, I've been having some tooth/jaw pain, been to the dentist....we're still not sure the cause of  the major malfunction.  I've had TMJ for years, it could be stress (clenching at night) or a tooth that's not a happy camper...but the pain sends me through the roof!

For now, I'm doing this.....


Can't wait till it's better... :o(
Edited to say...the meds are working, but now I don't know which one is doing the trick...the antibiotic or the muscle relaxer.  lol   I'll finish them both just in case. :o)

My husband had this exact same experience and was lucky enough that the emergency dentist was actually one of the US top 5 experts for TMJ. He put him in a mouth guard that repositions his jaw. Within a week, the pain was gone and within 6 months, the TMJ was gone!!! Hope this helps you -- it was expensive, but well worth it.

Hey Shari, So glad that the bouquet of flowers had brightened your day! As one of the former HA hostis, I'm thankful to get to know you a bit better through your amazing creations and the exchanges of the ATCs. Hugs to you and family! Hope your jaw pain will be over soon. Those meds should provide you much relief.

ETA: Our younger daughter has TMJ problems, too, and takes 600mg of ibuprofen (Advil) a day and wears a mouth guard at night. Seems to be helping but braces and jaw surgery are in her future. Take care!
