Blog Break

UPDATES: (Not that anyone would care, but I’ll update anyway 😛 )

1. The Dentist (my dentist, not the first one I saw who said I needed surgery) did not have to operate on my third molar, after all. The impaction was not very bad, in fact the tooth is upright. She just had to remove some of the gums so the tooth can erupt. It was (still is) painful, but surely nothing compared to impacted molar surgery. For that I am thankful!

I wonder why the first dentist advised surgery when the x-ray should have clearly shown her what needed to be done. And the price of surgery, at Php8000 – 10,000, does not come cheap huh! Imagine if I took her word for it… and later learn from my dentist that all that was needed is a Php500-snip on the gums. Arrgh.

Hey, thank you for all the well-wishes. I guess they all came true!

2. Thank you, Em Dy and Rach, for the shiny badges of blog honors. 🙂


Hi Friends!

No, I’m not really stressed.

It’s just my aching third molar (a.k.a wisdom tooth) that has been trying to erupt for the longest time, thus the gums in that far end of my mouth are swollen. There’s a dull, throbbing pain that seems to come from within. Must be the third molar pushing against the second. A case of impacted molar, though not a bad one, as the dentist assured me: “The surgery(!!!!!) won’t take long, just about an hour.”

The thing is, I can’t have the surgery (!!!!!) yet because: 1) My son is sick (again!); 2) the girls’ 2nd quarter exams are coming up; 3) I feel like firing my son’s yaya (Ang sakit sa ulo, pramis!); 4) I have to oversee some work to be done on our roof.

I can’t possibly be nursing a dental surgery (!!!!!) while all these are going on at home. But the thought of being groggy for days due to the sedative effect of painkillers appeals greatly. Oh to sleep and sleep and sleep and sleep – what joy that would be!

But, I can’t possibly… So that will have to wait. This is probably the first time that I’d actually welcome a surgery (!!!!!), though I’m sure by now you noticed how scared I am.

When times like these come, one thing bears the brunt. Blogging takes the backseat for now. I’m sorry if I’m unable to return blog visits. As soon as the semestral break comes in two weeks, I’ll be back to blogging. Thank you, though, that you still come around despite my being a poor host.

Lastly, I want to thank the wonderful women bloggers (Cookie, Wenchie, Anna, Lynn, Ann, and Mitch) who awarded my blog recently. I am honored to receive these badges from you ladies! As I said a few posts back, it is blog friends like you that make me look forward to blogging. Thank you very much! Merci beaucoup! Xie xie nin! Maraming salamat! I shall pass on the badges when I return, I hope you don’t mind.

Lovingly yours,

Chateau 😛

  1. Hi Chats. Hope the pain will go away soon. Sorry that Magnate is not feeling well. Hope you’ll both feel better soon.

    Good luck on your kids’ exam. Si Yohan katatapos lang last week.

    Take care.

  2. Hi Chats!! Ouch!! On all counts, that is. Can’t imagine what kind of headaches you’ve been dealing with. Not to mention that friggin toothache. Hayaan mo, dadaan din yan. Take your time, pal. Andito lang naman kami. Will pray that all will be well for you, Magnate, the gals, and the hubs. Will be missing you…again 🙂

  3. Ay naku, so how do you cope with the pain? Painkillers ba? Ay naku, I hope tooth ache can be eradicated from the face of the earth. Just like small pox was.

    Awww, I can now sometimes relate with the craving for sleep.

    Perhaps you we can still play scrab?

  4. Hi Chats! I hope you’re toothache will soon go away. At least with all those painkillers you can get more sleep and I know for us moms, sleep is a luxury. Good luck to your kids’ exams and hope your baby gets well soon too. And hay yayas can be really a problem! 🙂

  5. I’m sure you’ll get by.

    Hmm positive thinking would help. don’t think about the pain, think about the long term relief after the surgery!

    God Bless you and your family!
    Adorable photos by the way…

  6. Hi Chats. How are you? Hope you’re doing much better now. I miss you.

    I have an award waiting for you on my blog. Take care!

  7. Hi Chateau, just dropped by to say hello. Glad to hear you didn’t have to go through oral surgery afterall, but stil, ouch! Hope you feel better soon.

    You deserve the awards! 😀

    Hi JMom! Thank you for coming by. Love your new home, btw… Am feeling better.

  8. “I wonder why the first dentist advised surgery…”

    You just answered your question in the following sentence.

    Money, money, money. 🙂

    I hope you’re feeling better now.

    Thanks for stopping by, Abaniko. Yes I’m feeling better. And yes, money (10x).

  9. Hmm. I posted my comment twice and they’re both gone. Maybe, you’re doing comment moderation. Okay. 🙂

    Hi Abaniko! I wonder why your comment went to Spam! Ngek, akismet sometimes is crazy… No, comments aren’t under moderation.

  10. Hi Chats! I hope all’s well with you. Aren’t we all eagerly awaiting for our children’s sem break? 🙂

    Hi Lynn! Oh yes, counting the days till the 26th! 🙂

  11. Sem break, ah, my eldest is looking forward to that. My son Julian doesn’t have one, he seems to be in a break all the time because he homeschools. 😀

  12. I didn’t know elementary kids have sem break now. ok yan ah. How’s the tooth? Hope you’re feeling ok now. Naku, natakot tuloy ako with that tooth story, I don’t even have extra insurance for my teeth and it costs a lot here for extra work like surgery and implants.Although The V. said with the way things costs here I could go home to the Philippines, have my teeth fixed there and have fun with family and friends. And that would even cost less than having it done here.

    Hello Mng. Toni! hehe
    Grabe, ang mahal naman ng dental services dyan… Tama, dito ka nalang magpagawa – mura na, makikita mo pa family and friends mo. 🙂

  13. Hi Chats. Just read your update. I’m glad that you didn’t have to undergo a third molar surgery. Hope the pain has already subsided by now.

    Pareho pareho pala tayo, ako din excited na mag sem break. 🙂

    Hi rach! 1 week nalang, sem break na! Hooray! My gums/tooth are okay now, thank you for asking.

  14. uy ako i care!

    visited this blog just now, i myself was forced to go on blog break kasi nasira ang pc ko.

    anyway, i share your pain 🙂 read somewhere that there’s no pain like toothache, and that it’s much worse than heartache. it’s just a joke, but having had numerous toothaches in the past, i couldn’t help agreeing 🙂

    Hi cess! Na-miss kita ha. Glad that your PC’s okay now. My tooth seems okay now! The wound has healed and the gums are parang back to normal na. Yehey!

  15. Hi Chat!

    Good thing you didn’t have to undergo surgery. Hope you’ll feel better soon.

    Congratulations on your Fitmom project accomplishments. Lapit na sa target! 🙂

    Thanks, Jayme. Hirap na ako ngayon because I seem to have reached my plateau. Uh oh.

  16. Ouch. Goodluck ha. Alam mo when we went home last year I consulted a dentist for Kelvin’s teeth and the guy wanted him (2 years old at the time) to undergo several tooth polishing sessions (around 30K PHOP est)… Na-shock ako not at the price but at the thought of putting my son under so much stress and pain.

    I consulted another one and she was more realistic & compassionate with my son. Afterall checkup lang ang gusto ko to make sure his teeth are healthy.

    Some people are so greedy.

    Ako din na shock – both at the price and the thought of what Kelvin will go through. Why do milk teeth need to be polished??? Did he explain why?

  17. Hi Chats! Glad to hear you didn’t have to go under oral surgery. You’ll see it in your x-ray if the molar is really impacted anyway. Buti na lang nagpa-second opinion ka.

  18. I am sure tht news about the molar break boosted up your morale. Mine too, morally or virtually if not actually. Ayayay, staying away for too long from blog hopping must have made me chronically corny. ooops. sobra na.
