Update

Many thanks to all the folks who left supportive messages on my last post! My tooth and I have not yet parted company, I need a specialised extraction and am still waiting for an appointment date :( I am no longer in any pain, which is the good thing! :) Am hoping that normal service will be resumed here soon!

Best wishes

Hope you don't have to wait too long Dan - glad you are no longer in pain. Toothache/pain has to be the worst. Sending ((((hugs)))) and hope all gets sorted soon.

Hels said...

I got a grand pair of pliers hun if you want me to fetch them on Monday LOL Sorry you gotta lose it though, but at least the pain is at bay....big hugs for you love xxx

Take care of yourself Dan. There is nothing like a toothache...maybe an earache comes in a close tie. But seriously take care and hope you don't have to wait much longer. Sending best wishes your way.

Tooth pain is the WORST. I have (well, HAD) a molar on each side that needed root canals at different times and subsequent cleaning outs (whatever it's called). I finally told the dentist "Either YOU pull it or *I* will." Woo-hoo!! No problems now AND I can sip with a straw even when my teeth are clenched! :D The tooth on the other side was finally replaced with some shiny bling after I cracked the white stuff crown. (Now if I could only learn Morse code... then I could flash an S-O-S if I needed.)

Seriously though, I'm glad you are feeling better. We've missed your wit and wisdom at the Cricut Lovers Yahoo Group. :)

Donna Lee said...

So sorry that they can't save the tooth thru a root canal or some other more conservative treatment. Glad to hear that you are no longer in pain and hope you are enjoying life again!

Oh dear Dan, sorry to hear about your tooth troubles BUT glad to hear it's not painful anymore!

Jo Bee said...

Oh no dan, toothache is the worst, i had to wait almost 6 months to get my wisdom tooth out at the hospital, and the pain was unbearable for most of that!! Orajel is a great product, if you know anyone in the states that can send you the max stregth, that is even better!

You have my sympathies, hope you get an appointment through soon!

Heather in FL said...

I was wondering how you were doing. So sorry to hear you're still having tooth trouble, but I am glad to hear you're no longer in pain. My DH has tooth issues all the time and is just miserable when it's happening. Hopefully you can get "back to normal" soon!

Dentists just don't get in a hurry, do they? I was referred to an oral surgeon a year and a half ago to have my Wisdom teeth removed. I'm still waiting on them to call me back....LOL

Glad you're not in pain. I wish you a speedy recovery after your extraction is done. Ouch! Tooth pain bites! Pardon the pun! LOL

Fingers crossed your appointment comes quickly. Hugs x

Billie said...

Hey Dan,
Sending you hugs and hoping that everything is ok with you.

julie z said...

I hope you are okay and have not had to wait too long for the extraction. I also hope your absence is for reasons other than the tooth or other illness. Taking a break for a while is good. Especially if you are able to enjoy it.

Raquel said...

Are you OK Dan? We're all worried about you! I'm sending love and well wishes! (((HUG)))

Since you have been dealing with this for so long I think that your next project should be something to do with dentists or teeth. LOL. Hope everything is alright.

I, too, hope that your tooth has finally parted company with you. I recently had to have a double root canal, and it was pure hell. I can't imagine what you must be going through! I hope you are doing well!

Annabelle said...

Hi! I just found your blog and your videos. Thank God! I just downloaded Inkscape last week. I've been using Paint Shop for years, had no trouble with SCAL but Inkscape had in me almost in tears earlier today. All the tutorials I've found seem to start in the middle of something and made no sense. I watched your JPG to SVG video and I got it immediately. Then I watched paper piecing from colored image...it's easy!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! (Sorry for gushing.) I love your voice, too.

I hope you're feeling better soon!!
Annabelle

Sorry you've been under the weather- hope all is well! You are a great teacher and missing you on the sure cuts a lot forum!

Trish said...

Hi Dan,
I'm so sorry you're not feeling better yet. Like others, I hope that you have been able to sort out your tooth problem and will soon be back on the SCAL forum. You are missed. Sending you hugs from this side of the pond :)

SusyC said...

Anonymous - Wow, what a very sharp post? Do you know Dan personally? If not, then I suggest you keep your thoughts to yourself! People DO care when bloggers drop out of circulation and things do go wrong, especially with anaethesia, if this was involved. I for one am concerned about Dan's disappearance, even as an occasional visitor. It is highly unlikely that someone with Dans talent and creativity would throw a hissy fit that would keep him away from doing what he so obviously enjoys and at no time did he ever have to offer what he does as 'freebies', he obviously chose to share.

Hello Dan,

I hope you are well - we've been missing you in the yahoo group.

Please come back soon.

carainmom said...

Is there anyway we can find out if Dan is okay? Does anyone know him or maybe be able to get some information? I would really like to know if there is something wrong. I sincerely hope he's okay. Kelly

And to "anonymous" What a coward you are. Get off the internet!

RubyMay said...

So missing you Circus-Dan/Bat-Dan/Super-Dan !
Have you metamorphed again?
...or maybe visiting the USA?
Whatever hat you're wearing now I hope it sits on a painfree head and also a head filled with happy thoughts.
Sending you strength, love and joy
(just in case you need some!)

Hels said...

As a matter of fact "anonymous", Dan happens to be a close friend of mine and who the hell do you think you are spouting off like that about someone that you have never met and do not know. Keep your petty opinions to yourself ... if you haven't got anything nice to say then keep your trap shut!
My sincere apologies to all the other lovely peeps who have posted here with well wishes for Dan for getting overheated there but I just think that some people open their traps before actually thinking about what they are saying...and as for keeping themselves "anonymous" well, that really is tragic and cowardly! And, as a matter of fact, Dan did have a dental problem and no he hasn't got a massive ego - I rather think that it is "anonymous" who has the ego for even contemplating speaking out against someone who has been so generous not only with his time but also his knowledge.
I am sure that Dan is most appreciative of all your lovely comments peeps and will be back soon.....
Dan love, biggest hugs for you and please remember that we all loves ya and are missing you.....lotsa love Hels xxxxxxxxxxxx

Billie said...

Hels,
Thank You and "amen".

:)

jo said...

Hallo from France
A bientôt j'espère

Kinglake said...

Hels thanx for letting us know that dan is ok and will be coming back to blog land!We all miss him and his fantastic work.GET WELL SOON DAN!!! xx jo xx

Andrea said...

goodness gracious me, I to like Hels am a good friend of Dans and was rather shocked and discusted at what the Anonymous individual wrote, especially when they do not know Dan and they have obviously visited Dans Blog regular for there weekly Freebie, I am assuming that the truth of the matter is they are rather miffed that at the moment they are unable to sponge of Dans fabulous talent and they themselves are missing getting something for FREE. I guess it takes all kinds in this world and they seem to be one of lifes unkind, well as most of us that visit Dans Blog are very appreciative of his Talent, His videos, His brilliant artwork and his sense of humour I hope to see him back as soon as he feels ready to be and am sure you all do to. We have to ignore the ignorance of one poster and wish Dan a speedy recovery, our love and hugs Dan, take care love Andrea xxx

PS Hels said it all to, she has a better way with words than me xx

sonia said...
