Hello, my darlings.
It seems I have blamed the dentist for my pain a bit prematurely.
Instead, I should be blaming acute pancreatitis, a fatty liver, and the overuse of ibuprofen. And it took two trips to the ER and a nice hospital stay to come to that conclusion. Along with several bags of fluids, morphine, and a few other drugs.

I'm ok now, just tired and a little sore. Feeling better a little at a time.
On the short term, I've got to take it easy for a while, eat the bland foods, take my medicine, and all that. On the long term, it looks like I'm going to have to make some changes, and make some better choices, if I don't want to end up back in the hospital for the same thing again and again. Be more active, watch what kinds of foods I eat, no more ibuprofen...the list goes on...
I'm a little scared/frustrated about the financial end of it. I can't even think about it at this point. The only thing I can say is I guess they can't take what I don't have and I'll do my best. *sigh* People should not have to pay money to be healthy. Oh well, we will persevere, right? :) It looks like no new art supplies for a while though...ha ha.
I just wanted to give you a little update, let you know I'm still kicking so far and that I hope to be back on my artsy feet soon. And because I don't want to be all doom and gloom, I'll leave you with something funny:
