~I WOULD CHEW NAILS...IF I COULD~

Hello guys...have you ever had one of those week where you should have stayed in bed the whole week....Of course you have...All I am doing here is venting no comments needed...You all know about my tooth problem..well I hate going to the dentist but this was one time I was really looking forward to getting out of this pain...
I broke this tooth last week..called my dentist right away and was told he was on vacation...that's cool right !! they his staff set up oral surgery for me on Friday the 22 nd cool...Well yesterday they call me and tell me my Dentist died the night before...Bummer I felted really bad thought it was a sudden thing right...WRONG he was in the hospital when they scheduled me for oral surgery...Instead of just telling me the truth...tell give me a story about him on Vacation...They could have heard me without a phone I was that mad...number 1 if I had known the truth I could have been trying to find another Dentist...Number 2 this is memorial weekend so now I am busy trying to find someone to help me...an ax murder would look good at this point ha ha!! How can people run an office this way...knowing they have a patient in pain and not be honest with them...but to set up oral surgery for them give them pain meds and hope maybe the Dentist doesn't die !!!

So now I am livid and still in pain...Len is trying to get me into his dentist in Reno, NV right now...Just wanted to vent here guys...will let you know the out come of all of this...Maybe I'll find me a a tooth fairy yet ha ha!! May all of you have a great Memorial weekend...
Kyra also has to have a new feeding button put in her tummy...the one she had in deflated the other night and Amarillo Hospital can't put another one in...they put an temp feeding tube in her until Friday when she goes back to Children Hospital in Dallas...you see this little girl can only take an ounce of food by mouth and the rest has to be done with a feeding tube...
Jacob and Morgan did get to Tx and he got checked into Fort.Hood so no Amtrak baby YEA!!

Love ya guys....Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

How ridiculous. Then if you tell them how upset you are, they probably think you are the "bad guy". I hope you find a dentist soon. I mean, if he was in the hospital, that sick, even if he got better, was he coming straight to work??? Unreal!

Melissa Miller said...

Girl that is terrible!
I am so sorry he died and for your pain.

I hope it all works out very soon.
I sent you an e-mail as well.

~Feel better. ~Melissa

Oh Gloria, I am so sorry you are having to deal with this on-going pain...and now trying to find another dentist just before a long weekend. It is inexcusable that the office staff didn't tell you the truth last week.

Doesn't/didn't your dentist have another dentist on standby to cover any emergencies his patients might have while he was hospitalized? I am sure his office is in a state of shock and total turmoil now that he has passed but it might be worth placing another call to them to see if any of your dentist's colleagues in the community are going to take over seeing his patients...especially ones with emergencies, such as yours.

I wish you a speedy resolution to this so you will soon be pain-free.

Gloria,
I was just over at Melissa's Heart and Home and read your comment so dashed over here. Yesterday I read you had teeth troubles, but now this! Sweetie I feel for you and hope you get relief soon. Take care. Cathy

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

OMG Gloria! Of all the rotten things to happen. Why didn't the office just refer you to another dr??? Chris had oral surgery years ago & got an infection. His dr went on vacation for a week without another dr to back him up. His office was useless. Hubby went ballistic & found another dr to operate & clean out the infection. He went thru hell, so I have a pretty good idea of what you're going thru. Hang in there!

Yay - no Amtrak baby!

☺♥☺ Diane

Oh Gloria, I'm so sorry to hear about your toothache - and the nerve of that office to treat you that way! We would never treat our patients that way. I sure hope you get some relief this weekend. ~ Robyn

janet said...

Chari said...

Ohhh Sis...you poor thing!!! I'd be redhot too...I can't believe that fed you that line of #@*#! Why weren't they referring all of his patients to someone else? Ohh gosh...I'm so sorry Sweetie!!! I feel for you! I'm praying even now for Len to find a dentist for you...you have got to get that taken care of!!! What a mess!

I will check back with you tomorrow...praying for you to find a dentist or oral surgeon to help!!! I'm so sorry Darlin'...hang in there!!!

Love ya,
Chari

Oh my! What in the world were they thinking when they gave you that appointment. I feel bad that the poor man passed away but they just left you in agony. That's just not right. They should have been honest with you so you could have found help elsewhere. I will keep you in prayer to find another dentist to help you. Hugs, Loretta

Justine said...

Oh, you poor thing!!!!!!!!! It's horrible that the dentist died, but really, he was on "vacation"? Turns out to be the longest vacation possible! And now my poor Gloria is still in pain!!!!!!!!!! Ooh, I do hope Len can get you in with his dentist, but it's in NV? I hope you're near the state line!

Poor baby Kyra. I want that feeding tube OUT now!

Soooooooooo happy to hear that Jacob and Morgan made it to Ft. Hood safe and sound!!!!!!!
Justine :o )

bj said...

O, there is nothing worse than a toothache..so sorry!
Pour baby, Kyra..I will continue praying for her, Gloria. Bless everyone's heart...I know you are all worried about your baby.
blessings, bj

Well I'm sorry but I have to comment. This is inexcusible that they didn't refer you to someone else. I broke a tooth a couple of months back (had a dream I was falling and when I hit the ground I fractured a tooth and bruised the ligament in my jaw) so I can feel you pain. I understand they were protecting the dentist's privacy but you have got to be in some pretty heavy pain, I know I was and they didn't have to tell you where he was, they could have just referred you. I hope you can get into one soon. I'll be praying for you. Cindy

mishebe said...

Vent sweetie, doesn't feel better. lol. Yea they should have had a backup dentist on call. Sad about your dentist but maybe that is what he advised them to say in the first place. i have heard dentists can be a nightmare to work for...Ego thing. But i know about tooth problems and i admire you can handle it this long.... Heres hoping for a visit today! mishelle ps. And h yea Adam should of got the title. But he still won anyways, we all know that....

Oh how terrible! Tooth pain is just the worse. I'm saying a prayer for you sweet lady, and I do hope you've been able to get some help by now! laurie
