I will complain

The best part of our trip was the way home. Jasmine slept almost the entire five hours back so me and my mom were actually able to have a conversation. I don't think there was much silence the entire way.

I think what started off as a cold, has turned into a sinus infection. I put myself on antibiotics today. Before you yell at me for making super germs and whatnot, hear me out. I also woke up to find out I have an infection in my gums from my damned wisdom teeth. The dentist will tell me what I already know. They need to be pulled and it's going to be expensive and require needles and surgery by an oral surgeon. I won't be going to the dentist for this if I don't absolutely have to but I do need a cleaning soon. I've pretty much been a big sack of whining pissiness, followed by much sniffling and coughing. Oh and then as I mentioned... it's snowing. Yeah that'll help my mood.

Jasmine has a massive canker sore on her lip. It's bigger than the eraser on a pencil. It finally started healing up today and doesn't look quite as gasp worthy. I think the canker sore was worse for her than having a cold. No, I know it was. The cold didn't make her cry. I've woken up to her the last several nights crying next to me and saying her mouth hurt. Whenever she gets them, they always get huge. Along with her being in pain, Evan seems to have a bug up his butt. I woke up to my husband saying to him, 'Your mother better get up soon or I'm going to lose it.' I'm sure it didn't help that as soon as I walked into the room, the kid shut up for the next several hours. He was a little whiny a few minutes ago but he's just tired. Now he's asleep in his swing. Ah sweet silence.

Jamie, know the lecture is coming, don't you?

If you've got a gum infection, it's likely that it's an anaerobe, and those usually require different antibiotics than something like a sinus infection. Also, gum infections can result in endocarditis, which is often a life-threatening infection.

Are you scared? Good. Don't put this off, hon, seriously. Yes, it's a pain, but it will be over before you know it, and if you ask real nice they'll probably give you some vicodin. I'm not really trying to lecture, but I'm a little, okay a LOT cautious when it comes to infections, and I'd hate to see things get really bad for you.

Love, Beth
