Thank you for all your Prayers & Encouragement!

Good Morning friends... I just wanted to leave a quick post to Thank each and everyone of you for being such good Friends and especially for all of your prayers.
Dr. appointment didn't give me the results I had hoped for. The Dr didn't want to chance opening my incision to reove the stitches because there was to much infection. So he doubled my antibiotics for two days and then has me taking the remainder of my script as directed for 10 days.
It seems to be working because there seems to be no infection draining anymore and the hole is looking so much better. It has even healed a little.  So I am grateful for everyones prayers and hopeful taht this will be the end of it and i will finally heal up normally with no new problems.

But of course me being the lady with the worst luck in the world... I'm not going to escape this drama without another new problem.. Well actually it's an exsisting problem that I was hoping and praying might be delayed until my neck was totally heals...No such luck!
Thanks to my Sjogren's disease my teeth jus crumble at will and I am losing another one that crumbled a couple weeks ago. The dentist has repaired it 3 times and finally two weeks go when I went to see him to put a new filling it in since the last one fell out..He said, I can't save it Tonya there simply is not enough tooth left to fill without it falling out within days or maybe a week. You know you have to get it pulled.
Of course I expressed how I wanted my neck to heal first as I know how a new trama wasn't gona sit well with my fragile system and probably get infected too.
So he put as much filling in it that he could and then said maybe you will get a week out of it but don't be surprised when it abcesses so get in to see the dentist who pulls my roots out...there is never any tooth left so I call him the root puller....Then I prayed it would stay till the neck healed.
It wasn't meant to be I'm afraid..Friday afternoon it started to hurt a little and by Saturday it was a full blown tooth ache... Of course no dentist on a Saturday or come Monday I will try to get in to see the root puller.
The only promising thing about this is I am already on Antibiotics & God willing it works to ward off any infection from the extraction..

LOL...just another day in the life and times of Tonya...

Some day I am gona feel normal again.. I know i will I have all of you praying for those days for me..

God Bless you all


  1. I am so glad to hear that your neck is starting to heal, good news for sure. I know what you are going through with your teeth. I have been losing mine too with my vitamin D deficiency. It seems like when it rains it pours. Will we every get back to feeling normal again? Thank you for your prayers and my prayers go out to you too.
    Take care
    Country at heart

  2. You certainly have had your share of bad luck Tonya...I'll pray for your health to improve. Blessings.

  3. Oh Tonya,
    The LORD is STILL in control...and He is hearing all the prayers for you! The LORD will be with you even though these teeth problems. I developed teeth problems as a child do to some serious medication I was one for an infection. It has now been 50 years, and many dentists visits and interventions. The LORD is still in control, and loves me for All of Eternity~ My teeth in Heaven will be beautiful...without decay!!! Praise the LORD always! ♥♥♥

  4. Just doing some catching up here, Tonya - and so very sorry to hear of your continuing issues. Wow - you've sure had a time of it and then some. I saw your previous posts regarding the infection, and that makes me want to scratch my neck just looking at it! I can only imagine what it must feel like when it gets hot and sweaty. Poor, poor, you! I've been praying for you Girlfriend - and will continue to do so....Hopefully the tooth (er root) pulling will be a non-event and you'll have some instant relief. My son just went through that a couple of weeks ago - he was in such pain for so long, then had to go on the antibiotics and wait some was sad that they couldn't save the tooth, but a day after it was gone he felt so much better. Take care and I'll be praying over you....Hugs ~ Robin

  5. I am believing that things are going to be getting better for you everyday now! I am still praying for you! Love the smile on your face.

  8. I am so glad that your neck is healing up. Wow! The power of prayer. It does change things. :)

    Gosh, I didn't know everyone has teeth problems. So glad that I am not alone. I will have to have one out soon. I guess chemotherapy drugs can mess up your gums and teeth. I didn't know that. :( I need to keep the ones I have left.

    Yes, you will feel normal. We all hope that will be soon.

    Praying for everything to get better.
