Dental Work Woes
Getting older means more and more things go wrong physically. Today’s newest woe is a tooth issue. I have been hurting for over a month and finally got in to see the dentist. I have been suffering daily for a while. There have been instances where the pain has shot to my temple and I thought I was having an aneurysm. I’ve wondered if my head was going to explode from the pain. The dentist and dental assistant told me they were surprised I have tolerated it this long and were amazed I wasn’t in tears. I told them I have been in tears over it. So the verdict is either a root canal and crown with a 35% chance that the crown won’t stay on or it needs pulled. The dentist was very nice and knew I wasn’t sure what to do so she gave me an Rx for an antibiotic and pain pills which will give me time to decide what to do. I don’t have a ton of money to spend and there’s a 35% chance it won’t work to save a tooth. But I really don’t want to lose a tooth. I got my prescriptions and have taken them and am feeling MUCH better. Typically I don’t have such a reaction to pain pills and I am quite grateful for this woozy feeling. So I am trying to decide what to do as far as taking care of the issue. In the meantime, my lovely boyfriend is cooking me dinner. Between him and my beautiful cats I feel much better than I did hours ago. Thank you, Todd, Chloe, Soleil, and vicodin. Love you all!
