When Your Life Throws You a Curve Ball!

Just a few weeks ago, as my husband and I were having a nice quiet dinner at home, I had just taken a bite of food and a sharp pain went shooting up into my mouth and jaw.  I dropped my fork and knife, ran upstairs, rinsed my mouth out, flossed and brushed my teeth and looked in the mirror.  O.M.G.!  One of my teeth was split in half!

The next morning I called my dentist and he took me in on an emergency basis, removing the broken half of the tooth. He was hoping the tooth would be salvageable, but it wasn’t.  He referred me to an oral surgeon and I made an appointment.  For a few days I could only eat soft foods and only chew on one side.  Soon after, I starting getting a shooting pain on the other side of my jaw! I called my dentist who took me on an emergency basis again and said it was my last remaining wisdom tooth–  the good news was that the oral surgeon could extract both of them at the same time!

The bright side of this whole experience is that my husband and I got to spend a whole day together and, although he has always been warm and caring, he was so nurturing making sure that I had everything I needed to follow the doctor’s protocol. This experience actually forced me to relax and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, which for me is almost an impossible feat! I have always been energetic, so this was a challenge! I also choose to see the underlying blessing of having both teeth removed at the same time instead of having this experience twice!

So in conclusion the old saying, “look for the silver lining,” in situations that feel like a curve ball has been thrown your way, rings true!
