# 193 - More Randy - While I'm in Pain!

We four are getting ready to head out to a ranch so that we could finish filming "Randy to the Rescue."

 I tried my best to get ready, but I'd just had a root canal in less than 48 hours before abscessed tooth doesn't like to follow frilly schedules, so I was in agony. but still trying to put on a smile. A very painful smile.

I'm thinking about how thankful I am that today's filming is all about Heather, her fiance Henry and David.

Me no have to talkie-talkie.

Yesterday, I put on my gingerly as possibly around the area of my jaw that felt as if it had gone ten rounds with Mohammad Ali. It's not a good feeling to know that you could possibly be filmed on the day your lower jaw is swollen and you talk funny and you look funny and you are on worthless pain medication.

And little did I know, the Penicillin was about to start making me very nauseated. My own little scene in the world would be getting worse throughout the day, but I had loads of fun while laying down and watching the filming.

Here we go. More bright lights. More Cameras. More Questions and More Silly times together with my awesome family who I NEVER thought would appear on reality TV! Deputy Dave is a natural in front of the camera.

Go figure...he works daily in a big city criminal courtroom where it's normal to have cameras in your face. It doesn't faze him. Only HUGE  difference is, while in the courtroom, Deputy Dave is completely in charge; and those behind cameras in the courtroom better listen to the uniformed man, or else. Conversely, when filming for a reality television show, you better have that game-face plastered in place and ready at all times because they will catch you off guard when you least expect it.

Over this next week, I'll be posting the photos of our get-together on the ranch for filming of the upcoming show, "Randy to the Rescue." It was interesting...that is the least of it. Very interesting.

Looks like Deputy Dave is enjoying filming this for your photo albums ......

Charade said...

Yeah, and he looks like he's being very careful not to make any sudden moves or say anything to get under Mama's skin!

I am so sorry............but have fun!! It all makes memories doesn't it?

Hope you're feeling better soon! *Hugs* ♥

Mike said...

Oh I know the feeling. I wouldn't wish tooth pain on anyone, well..maybe one or two.

Don't worry about the swollen jaw. You're from Texas. Folks are gonna think you talk funny, anyway.

Michelle said...

I do hope you are feeling better soon!

Dreaming said...

As I write, with a throbbing upper tooth, I really feel your pain! I hope your's begins to subside!

Karen said...

Oh, Lana, I've been there, and I know how much it hurts! I walked in to the dentist's office clutching a glass full of ice chips (the only thing that would take the edge off the pain, believe it or not) and he said to his dental assistant, "When a patient comes in with a bucket of ice that's never a good sign." He had to arm-wrestle me for the ice cubes and I was never so happy to see a needle full of Novocaine in my life.

I hope you are on the mend, aw, it's too bad it had to happen during the exciting filming. You lead such a fascinating life! said...

Tombstone Livestock - yes, Deputy Dave was having a ball. :-)

Charade - you called it; he didn't even want to bump into me.

Janette - it seems that something always has to happen during times like these.

Linda - thank you for the hugs, they always make me feel better!! I'm feeling better finally, has taken a few days.

Mike - and yes, I was eager to fall-back upon my Southern drawl as an excuse for my mumbling! Tooth pain can indeed bring us to our knees.

Michelle - I'm catching up with comment finally cause I'm finally feeling better! Thank you...I guess this old gal takes longer to heal these days!

Dreaming - I sure hope your tooth is better. I feel for you as well. Not a good ache to be experiencing. I don't exactly like being aware of a toothache with each heartbeat!

Karen - I had to fall asleep with an ice pack on my face! I never loved an ice pack as much as I did this past week, along with ice chips that I'd hold against my gum in my mouth for as long as I could, then the next spoon shovel would go in. I just can't believe I traveled such a long distance right after needing such a procedure done...that's what really took a toll on me. But, I'm much better now!
