So nice to see signs of spring when I returned home today after 10 unplanned days in Winnipeg. No quilting happening here, that’s why the blog as been so quiet. I had an opportunity to get some more dental work done ( another crown) that a local dentist said I needed but when I got to Winnipeg to see my family dentist he said that the tooth is not strong enough for a crown as the root is reabsorbing! He sent me to a Endodontic specialist and he agreed, no crown, no root canal…it will just have to be pulled eventually. He also said my face pain problems are related to my teeth clenching so I am back home still feeling crappy! Think I need to take a different approach to my face pain now….any teeth clenchers out there with any suggestions for me. I hate wearing the splint at night!!!
It as also a good for me to spend a week with my mom as my grandmother is in the hospital so I was able to drive us to visit her everyday and give my mom a break from the 4 hour of city bus rides she does every day to see her! I could drive us to the hospital across town in half an hour! It was good to see my grandmother get stronger over the week and eating better too! I told her that was because I came to visit! :)
So you can imagine my quilting ‘mojo’ is pretty low right now but I hope to get back at it next week. Looking forward to spending the long weekend with my husband and boys. Might get the canoe out to paddle around the ice and take pictures of the Northern Pikes that are swimming around the shoreline. The loons are back and it is so nice to hear their song again. Spring is here!!
