YOGA! July challenge

I’ve been catching up on work today due to a near two-week bout with what turned out to be an infected tooth. What I thought was asthma and a possible sinus infection was actually an abscessed molar.

Two trips to the doctor, four blood tests, a chest x-ray, 2 ekg’s, three antibiotics and a four-hour stint in the ER on a Sunday night (worth its own post) later, I am back to the dentist in a few hours to begin the root canal.

Today, at least, I can sit up long enough to get a bit of backlogged work accomplished. Between Rob’s heart-attack, Mom’s visit and then this tooth thing, I’m woefully behind on the yoga – practice and preparation for teaching.

I need business cards and a new blog plus the time to prep for two classes. I should get the proof for the cards today or tomorrow. The blog is underway. But I still have a bit of reading to do for the Restorative  Yoga class and have to thumb through my Yoga Works notes for the Flow/Vinyasa class on Saturday.

On the business side of yoga, I received a call from the neighbor across the street about teaching a twice weekly class at the community hall. If it works out, I could be teaching four classes a week this fall session. Very exciting.

So, I have not abandoned ye. Once life settle into a “pattern” as Dee is fond of saying, blogging is on the schedule. Perhaps even daily again. I really need to work my word muscles again because I have aspirations that I might share at a later date.

Happy Yoga Month in the meantime.

  1. Wow, I’m sorry to hear how sick you’ve been. The discomfort must’ve been excruciating. I’m glad you’re at LEAST being treated now. Take care and be well, and please tell Rob I wish him well. 🙂

  2. good news that at least you know what’s been dogging you for the past few months! a good reminder that oral hygiene used to be a big killer in the medieval times! exciting yoga news – look forward to seeing where that leads you!

    • As the dentist was remarking on the pus she drained, I recalled many a dead Egyptian unwrapped to reveal “toothache” as the cause of death. In this case though, the fault lies with the fact the tooth was recently drilled for a deep cavity under an old (from my late teens, I think) filling. Apparently, all the brushing and flossing in the world can’t prevent recession under fillings. It was a new dentist and when I called about the abscess, he put me on the wait list and scheduled me for next week. People can still die of toothaches if they don’t have a dentist in reserve.
