I am only continuing to update you all so that those of you who are looking for pictures know that I'm not just being a slacker. I went back to the doctor AGAIN today. He says that now my mouth is showing signs of infection (apparently when I went in the first time with miserable pain it wasn't) and he also thinks there might be some problems with the bone that he put in for the implant. He gave me a SUPER antibiotic and I'm supposed to come back on Wednesday. If things still aren't better, please LORD help, then he is going to do another surgery on Friday. This would consist of removing the implant, fixing the bone, and putting the implant black in. So, I am feeling much better now because at least we have a plan and it doesn't look like I'll have to hurt like this for the rest of my life. For a while there I wasn't so sure. Anyway, that's the latest. When I finally make if off the couch, away from my heating pad and ice pack, and off my narcotics (which might require a slight intervention since I've been taking them so long...kidding, of course, kinda) I will be back to post about my BFF Holly's wedding and some other fun things.

Well, my plan was to post lots of great pictures this weekend while I was stuck at home. Unfortunately that hasn't happened. All was well with my teeth implant surgery until Saturday night/Sunday morning. Since then I've been miserable! I've had the WORST headache accompanied by severe pain in my neck, jaw, ear, etc. I called the doctor today and they said it's "normal." That may be but for someone who has a very high tolerance for pain it doesn't seem too normal. They gave me pain pills but they aren't working. At this point I'm taking 4 ibuprofen every 4 hours. Not the best course but the only one that gives me even a small bit of relief. The meds usually wear off in 2 hours so I'm left to suffer for the other two. They told me to call back tomorrow night if I'm not feeling better. Looks like I'll be calling back tomorrow afternoon if I can't get some relief. So all that to say, that's why I haven't been blogging. I've been laying on the couch with a fan and a heating pad and of course my meds. I hope to be back soon!!

I haven't forgotten about all you blog readers out there (all 5 of you, that is). I still plan to post pictures from the wedding and pictures of one of my favorite girls on her first birthday! It's just been a wild week. First of all the sleep deprivation from the wedding has had me down. I'm better now. Plus the HOGS ARE STILL playing in OMAHA! (Last night's game was awesome). Not to mention we had church last night and tonight is date night for us. I'm really excited! I love going on dates with my husband! We especially wanted to go out tonight for a few reasons. 1. It's been a while since we've had a date 2. Tomorrow is our 9 month wedding anniversary. WOW! 3. I get 3 teeth implants tomorrow morning. YUCK! 4. Josh leaves Saturday for Super Summer (summer camp) and I'll miss him terribly. SOOOO...all that to say I hope to do some blogging this weekend while my mouth heals up. I have LOTS of pictures on my camera so I'll do my best to share as many as my sanity will allow.
Until this weekend...GO HOGS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I'm alive! I've just been so busy these days! I have pictures and things to post from the last couple of weekends but there is no time for that now. I've been spending all of this week getting ready for "Wedding Weekend" that starts today. My friend Holly and Josh's friend Justin are getting married on Saturday! Yea! I'm excited! I have just had so much to do to get ready for it. It's going to be a long but wonderful weekend. And even better, I get to visit a few friends in NWA on Sunday! Can't wait to see all of you! So next week I'll do my best to get caught up and to post pictures from the wedding weekend.
Right now I'm just buying time until it is time to go walk. My mom and dad have started walking 9 holes of the golf course near their house. It's quite a walk! I did it yesterday for the first time and it wore me out. I think it will be good to have something other than the elliptical at the gym to do. I like to change things up a bit.
OK, enough stalling. I must go. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. If you think about it pray for perfect weather on Saturday. The wedding is outside in a field. So no rain and cool breezes would be ideal!
