My Absence Explained

Some of you have noticed that I haven't been blogging as much lately and my presence on Twitter and Facebook has been next to nil. And my emails? I apologize to everyone awaiting a response from me, I swear they're coming!

The reason?

Oh, do let me share. The answer is simple:

I have a dental file lodged inside my jaw.

Let me repeat in case you didn't hear.


My love of dentists continues to grow.

Anyway, let me just say that the pleasant humorous Cole you all know and love has vacated and the Cole with razor nails and murderous intentions has filled her place. Hopefully, this situation will be resolved shortly.

If not, I would appreciate the number of a good lawyer. (Even I am not sure if I'm joking on that one.)


  1. Oh my heck!! Well, I'm not really sure where to go with this one, but I hope that file comes out soon! :)

  2. Holy COW ,Cole. How the hell did that happen???? Never a dull moment, huh?

  3. Dentist Extrodinaire broke the file during a root canal. I have since been to an oral surgeon for a three part surgery. The first part was yesterday and the second part - the actual file removal - isn't for a couple of weeks. And the fun part? The surgeon isn't 100% sure the file can be removed.

  4. Oh hell, Cole. My first level of sympathy is for you. And it is immense. But my second is for me, because I really need to find a dentist and just can't make myself go...and stories like this make me even more gun-shy (and, for the record, you are the second person I've heard of having a part broken off during a dental procedure). I hope the surgery works and then you can look back with less pain. :)

  5. Yeesh! Hope your recovery is quick.

  6. Channel your inner samurai and kick some @ss!!!!

    Oh sadness! Hugs and get well soons and all that. But mostly, I just want you to go kick some @ass.

  7. Oh dear God.
    I know a good dentist, not that it will matter now but...
    Sounds like you've been hit by Murphy's Law.
    Hope you have a speedy recovery.

  8. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hugs!

  9. Oh for the love of all that is holy...and wtf do they mean, they aren't even sure it can be removed!!?? Knock you out and get that thing the heck out of there!?

    I'm also with EM Kokie...I've desperately needed to go to a dentist for the longest time and keep putting it off. I'd seriously rather give birth. Not even kidding. And this story doesn't make me feel any better about it LOL

    I hope this gets taken care of quick!! And really, why do they make you wait weeks....I think this would qualify as a dental emergency. Get it taken care of all in one shot you morons!

  10. Holy cow! Yeah, I'd be thinking about a lawyer too if I were you. Sorry, I don't know any good ones though. No matter happens, get better soon. We miss ya!

  11. What a nightmare! I hope the pain isn't awful. How could there be any question of removing it? (I can't figure out how a file broke off to begin with!) I'm with Michelle -- they put people under to remove wisdom teeth, so it seems like they should be able to do that for something like this, too.
