Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I swear it feels like I'm doing weekly updates, sorry haha. I think I mentioned this in another post, but honestly my brain is struggling. So I started to get some bad dental pain last week, while on the phone with the office my lip and chin actually started to go numb. You know that feeling when after a dentist visit and you have that tingly numbness wearing off feeling? Yeah that is how it was, just half of my lower lip and chin. Anyways turns out I have a pretty bad infection, so he pulled three teeth. Naturally not on the top like I've been working on to get dentures. But one of the infected ones was right at the nerve, so that's why the numbness. The infection spread into my neck, upper teeth, and towards my ear. That was Friday he pulled and i had to go back to work Sunday night. Each night got worse and worse, still trying to get over covid symptoms and the pain I haven't been able to sleep. I have been getting extremely dizzy and falling asleep during breaks. My brother enjoyed that cause he finally got a photo of me sleeping instead of the other way around haha. I couldn't take it anymore so I called in tonight. That puts me near max so I can't call in until next year. 

 

Bandit update- I took him to the vet today, made sure it was not the same one as before. The area that they cut is pretty thick right now. They aren't sure if it is because of him scratching it and messing up the tissue or if it is actually a tumor. We have some things we are going to try for a week and depending on that we will go from there. He currently has what they call a turtle neck on and he is not happy. But he liked being outside on the leash haha. We still struggle with eating, but we got him more pain meds and an anti-inflammatory to see if it helps him eat. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian I just wanted to come back and check in on you. I hope you're doing better. 💗

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@curlychiquita Thank you! Slowly but surely.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Just saw this @Samtian I surely am thinking about you and Bandit. Too much going on and I hope you both are doing ok. Hugs!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Sunnysmom Thank you so much, we appreciate it. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian ouuuuchhhh!!!! I really really hope you can catch a break very very soon,,,,I feel so bad with all you've been dealing with 💙

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@lmaster Thank you! It's definitely been rough.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian  Oh, ouch! That sounds really painful. I hope you and Bandit start to feeling better soon.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@PrettyPaint Thank you so much!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian sorry you are going through all this. that really sucks. I hope better luck comes your and bandits way and you both are feeling better soon.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@WhereYouStand Thank you!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian ,

I think that you and Bandit have had more than your quota of problems!  I hope that all the best solutions are coming your way, for both of you!  If Bandit still has an infection in his neck,  that collar probably doesn't feel good at all.  I really hope that you both will feel better every day!

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@tsavorite Thank you, I sure hope so., Right now he has a tube sock on.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian Thank you for the updates! An infection at this time is really rough. I hope this passes for you quickly and that you are able to properly rest soon to fight off the virus!! I wish employers would give more sick days given that it's a pandemic. Hope Bandit gets his appetite back too! Sending rapid healing vibes

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@pocketvenus Thank you. I wish so too, 6 in a rolling 12 month period and then we are fired. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian Oh no, that is a brutal sick leave policy 😞 In Canada there's a sick leave benefits program but more mandatory paid sick days would be far, far better to address situations like yours. I hope you are able to take it easy when you can. Glad your brother is with you. Hang in there!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian - I am so sorry to read about your oral infection.  To have three teeth pulled on top of everything else you've been going through, things have got to be getting better for you soon!  Thanks for the update on Bandit!  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06 Haha I sure hope so! Thank you 🙂 Normally it takes me 7 days to recover from teeth pullings. And of course! Hopefully our next update is a good one!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian No need to reply me on the other thread 😉 Sending you and Bandit lots of love and prayers.  Hope both of you will recover quickly.  ❤️💖  You both go thru a whole lot 😞
