Hi to all.
Well, about 8 years past when I should have done it, I've scheduled a multiple tooth extraction ... long story that I won't get into now, except that my dentist told me that I'd lose more teeth if I didn't do it soon - and honestly, they've been bothering me more and more the past several months.
So here's the deal. The procedure will last about an hour, and I'll be pretty groggy afterward. My DH can still drive, but doesn't and gets terrible pains in his chest and back sitting in waiting room chairs. (side rant: why do doctor's offices all have chairs that are so un-ergonomic?) I was going to call my neighbor to see if someone in his family would be available.
Well, the Lord looks after us. My younger brother (one of my fave folks in the world) called to say he was driving up from S Fla for Mother's Day and wanted to stay with us. Yes! I asked if he could stay a few extra days and be my ride. He said it was about time that there was something he could do for me! Whew! What a relief! He's reliable and a genuine joy to be around. I've been feeling a little isolated lately, so I'm really looking forward to this visit.
I know a lot of you don't get support from your sibs, so I know I'm very blessed. Who do you turn to when you need someone to be there for you?
Hugs to all,
