Happy Birthday, Love of my Life!

I was going to include a picture of the extravagant cake that I was going to present to him. There won't be that cake today, though. After his trip to the dentist yesterday he might get jello and soft scrambled eggs.


He spent the day in a haze of pain killers yesterday. He doesn't remember much about it. He took the tranquilizer before leaving yesterday morning and then was treated to nitrous sedation during the procedure. He was one goofy fellow when I put him in the car and brought him home. Two teeth had to be removed and there were stitches involved. The stitches come out next week. Due to previous dealings with the manager of his work, I detoured by there on the way home, so that she could see for herself that he was indeed incapable of working a shift. He looked pretty pathetic and with my help went in (he has no recollection of this). She took one look at him and said that he should have made arrangements to have the shift covered. He honestly thought that he would be able to work. The tooth that had previously had the root canal and other work had to be cut out and the effects of the sedation, combined with the pain kept him in bed until this morning. The real irony here is that due to an accident the station had no power and wasn't even open! They had a full staff there, though. The transformer and the line from it has to be replaced and I would be surprised if they even had it up and running last night. If she just wanted warm bodies, I suppose they could have set a cot up some where and let him drool and snore there..........



But today, the birthday boy is pretty chipper. He is allowed his beloved diet coke today and is driving through the park as I write. I already gave him his present awhile back. I got him a chain saw sharpener! He loves it. He loves it so much that he has already sharpened one of the blades to death. It has since been replaced and is ready to saw all the logs he hauled in last week. I don't know that is is up to that today and if he decides to try ........ he will be stopped.


I am off now to get the jello going and maybe a little one layer chocolate cake........ no bacon with those eggs. Soon as he can chew I will make that cake and post the picture. He reads this, so I won't ruin his surprise, but the cake will be a combination of his favorites. A concoction that only someone who loves him could create!!

How loving! I lost 5 pounds after my last mouth surgery as I could just barely fit a fork in my mouth and could only eat things that required no chewing. I hope he's able to eat soon because that got old fast! I hope he has a happy birthday, and I can't wait tp see the cake!

Wow! That does not sound like fun. Well, the cake gives him something to look forward to on a non-birthday day. :)

Oh I hate the dentist so much. I was cringing the whole time I was reading this....OUCH! Loved your spring photos!!! I can't wait for my yard to dry out a little. This is the first year I actually look forward to some yard work. Coldest and longest winter I can remember!

Awww... what a good wifey you are! Poor guy - I know all too well about the painkillers and the sedation before the procedure. I've done a few things while under the influence that I don't even remotely remember.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BIRTHDAY BOY (man)!

Ugh my teeth hurt just thinking about it, I was not blessed with good teeth, so I feel his pain. Glad he's out and about today!

Dentistry work is definitely no fun. I'm sure any cake you make will be spectacular since you are so talented in anything you do.
