2.1.10

taking my mind off the pain

Here's a little something I'm playing around with. Burlesque themed girls. Mixed media drawing.
It's been such a l;lousy start to the year. On the 30th of December I woke up to a nasty tooth ache and booked in to see the dentist. They took a 180 degree x-ray and what a creepy sight it was! I've never had any problems with my wisdom teeth which is a wonder because all 4 teeth where growing in all the wrong directions!!! Now I don't mind having them out but because Tasmania is such a small state I guess the specialists are few and far between and I have to wait till July to see one! In the meantime I have to take antibiotics and pain killers....lots of pain killers. I just hope that I don't have to take these drugs all the way up to July as they make me pretty grumpy, nauseous and tired...but other wise not to bad. So in between feeling like crap I'm drawing happy pictures of party girls, dancing and swishing their skirts!

Ouch , you poor thing ! I hope the antibiotics kick in soon .

Oh Grace, 6 -7 months to wait...come on over to Canada, we can get you in tomorrow. IN the meantime whole cloves are good to chew on, as they are a natural pain reliever. Although it sounds like you would need to plant yourself in the garden to get enough benefit...I am sorry to hear about this...However in your pain, your lady in pink is just beautiful. How tall is the painting? blessings madame samm

Hi Grace, heard on the grapevine you weren't well, hope the pain settles down (sometimes it does). The painting is a lovely distraction though. take care.

I'm sorry you're in pain. I hope it settles down too. Six months is an awfully long time. Could you get to a specialist on the mainland?

Your dancing girl's sweet. Loooove your angel paintings ~ especially the first. I've been into Suzi Blu's blog before too ~ she's fun. Looking forward to seeing more creations.

Cheers

Ouch it hurts when I smile!! Thank you all so much for your words of 'WISDOM". Pain killers are working well. Still feeling a little crappy but at least I can focus on some work!

Hi Black Crow,

Sorry I missed this blog on the day it was posted. I was having a bit of trouble with frozen pipes. (Nothing compared to your troubles.)

I wish you all the best with the wait. And I hope that some cancels an appointment and that you can get in much sooner.

As to your little lady: I've never been into pink, but she is just wonderful. Pink is for her. Now when I see bright pink I'll thing of her and not turn away as readily.

Hugs my friend, Euphoria

Take care
XOXO Stephanie
