OH MY GOODNESS! Just now, Nov 27, I realized this post from when I was in the hospital did not post to my blog! Reposting now.

I'm in the hospital. Dentist decided to crown 4 teeth all in one sitting, which caused reactions to the multiple chemicals they used for taking mold shape of teeth, cement, then varnish on the new crowns. I had a lot of bleeding, and the rubber gadget to hold my jaw open for 3.5 hours caused a trigeminal neuralgia attack. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trigeminal_neuralgia) When I got to the hospital, I was asked why a dentist would do 4 crowns in one day! That's too much for even strong healthy people, much less someone with trigeminal neuralgia and heart problems and chemical sensitivities. I told the nurse I didn't know why, I didn't know I had a choice. Maybe the dentist did it so I wouldn't have to go through it 4 separate times.
I am just so thankful to have some whiter, prettier front teeth. I wanted whiter teeth since they grew in gray. Now they became so soft from lupus and diabetes, that they would have fallen apart without replacement. I am one of the VERY rare people to get white crowns paid for by gov't. How odd that they would pay for white teeth crowns but not a pacemaker to keep my heart going. Oh well, my Heavenly Father" keeps my heart going, so He is my "pacemaker", without all the suffering involved with getting a pacemaker put into my chest.
Bless you all
It's now the 26th, and I had a few complications, they sent me home sicker than when I went in. Now I'll have nice white teethe when hubby gets home! I sure wish I knew someone in gov't who would help me. I talked to a friend who used to be a lawyer here, and he has seen so many requests of different types go to gov't and sit on desks for up to 22 years, until the applicant called someone they knew in gov't, then it was found and taken care of in days. I'm ready to bribe someone in the area where my husband is, if i thought it would work. Its not against the law there (yet) to bribe. Might be unethical though. I need to just be patient and wait on the Lord, because He has important reasons for this delay. These delays are wearing us down. Sometimes I think there will be nothing left of my health by the time my husband gets here. I think of so many hundreds of possible reasons for the delay that I make myself sicker.
I hope you Americans had a day of counting blessings!
Bless you all;
