As you read, my February was a little different than usual. I had oral surgery to remove an infected tooth after a very painful, unsuccessful root canal in January.  I was put on strong antibiotics and had to take them for four weeks which caused some unwanted adverse reactions.  The actual tooth removal involved cutting out the root from the front of my gum and I had a bone and skin graft.  The stitches were removed today and the surgeon is pleased.  It will be healing until June!  Anyway, I am so thankful that the worst is behind me.  


  1. Wow! I am glad that things seem to be going well, but healing until June is a long time.

    I love your list of thankfulness! It reminds me to notice things to be thankful for.

    Also, every time I'm here I notice your daily goals list and it's so very wise!

  2. Hi Jenn. I love your list but the oral surgery sounds painful. I'm glad you are on the mend, but til June? Can you eat okay? I am tired of winter and ready for spring. Reading gardening stuff on the internet! Love you!

  3. O how awful. Yes, thankful that there is good anesthesia
