Halloween




Our Halloween party was great! YAY! The games went well... The trick-or-treating was a success. Everyone was happy. Andrea was a little dirt bike rider. Scotty was a hockey player. Sierra was a witch and Michaela was a Harry Potter person. :) I was a cat and Paul was Superman. I think I should have worn his superman cape though... for when I went flying through the air off the pogo-stick and landed on the concrete floor... face first.


Then I saw this...
I was not happy. I am still rather unhappy at the whole situation...

When I fell I landed on my chin and mouth and my two top teeth got pushed in ...so rather going straight down they were now pointing towards the back of my mouth. ..and turns out I chipped the tooth next to my two front teeth. :) Happy Halloween to ME!

HA I just thought... Now I can sing the "All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" song!! :) That is probably how long it will take for this all to be fixed.

Anyways, there I am in the middle of the Halloween party bleeding everywhere with my face swelling more and more by the minute. Super. Phone calls were being made, I don't know by who or exactly what was going on. I was getting dizzy so I went outside. I wanted Paul to stay with the kids because I didn't know what was going to happen and I just wanted the kids to go trick-or-treating. This was actually better because the emergency Dentist didn't know any English. Luckly she understood my friend's husband's Swedish...

This not so gentle dentist gave me some shots then pushed my teeth back into place. Hmmmm... not the highlight of my day. Then, in order to keep them where she pushed them, she glued a piece of metal wire across the front of them. Seriously?? Is this really the high tech solution of 2009? People have been to the moon, hearts can be transplanted from one person to another... I think we need to focus on dental work now if the best treatment for holding teeth in place is glue and a metal wire. ...As long as it works I guess. So now I have a wire glued with huge "glue balls" on my front four top teeth. Boy is that cute... no pictures... sorry!

I go back in a week to have some more x-rays. If I'm a good girl I can get this wire thing off my teeth in THREE weeks. So with a bit of luck I'll be able to eat my Thanksgiving Dinner and TRULY be thankful about it.

My mouth doesn't hurt. My lip is really fat and that is the most annoying thing. What hurts the most are both of my legs... somehow I hit the front of my thighs on something because they each have a huge bruise on them.

So....

I'm fine. I look funny because my lip and nose are still pretty fat.

I'm not in pain... I'm annoyed and frustrated. ...and hungry because I can't chew.

BUT - the kids all went trick or treating, so Mission Accomplished!

Oh, I am so sorry! You are so brave for making the kids' trick or treat your top priority, though. I hope things get better soon.

I saw the fall and it will give me nightmares for a long while! Poor Tara!!
All that work and then you missed the trick or treat part of the party. Rikard thought you were amazing when he took you bleeding and very hurt to the car for the ride to the emergency dentist, and when you left you said to Paul, 'don't forget to change diapers...' . Of course he didn't, he did perfectly well with all the children, but I don't think and parent thought about anything else then you at the dentist.
But for all the children the party was a huge success!
Lots of hugs!

Oh yikes! The dental work sounds a bit frightening - suitable for Halloween, no?

Indra said...

Shit! That's SUCKS! Hope you get better quick. I think this is a good excuse to take extra mommy time and get some pampering.

Lisa said...

Jesus woman! You are amazing! You pretty much knock out your teeth and go off to the dentist and the party was so well organized it kept going? Brilliant!

I will probably keep checking my teeth now throughout the day! You may have no mouth pain, but I am have psychosomatic pain over here! (Not the right use of the word... maybe I should invent a new one psychosympathetic? Is there a word for this? Already?)
