This week has been tough. I’m sure that came through loud and clear. I can’t say that I’m not glad to see it go.
Part of my craptastic week was Wednesday. Oh Wednesday. On this glorious Wednesday, I finally kept the appointment I’d been cancelling for three months and went to the endodontist. In late October, I had some fillings done because I have the worst teeth known to man. And I hate going to the dentist but I drag myself there every six months. Anyway, after the fillings, it still really bothered me. Bothered me to the point that I couldn’t eat on that side. It was all pressure related. It didn’t hurt when I didn’t use it and it didn’t interfere with life. I just ate on the other side. They tried adjusting my feelings numerous times but nothing helped so they wanted me to see a specialist.
I knew what that meant…
But, I kept the appointment. And…I had to have a root canal. Ugh.
I can’t say this is my first one. It’s my fourth and it sucks. Every time. But this guy was a new doctor for me and he used different tools so it’s a one shot deal. Hopefully. In the past, I had to go back 2-3 times so they could open it up, clean it out more, repack it and re-close it. Just a nightmare.
So, I’m sore and hurting a bit. Definitely sore. But it should be fading pretty soon and will get back to normal. I’ll have to get a crown in about a month. Good times all around.
It’s dreary and rainy and this sort of luke-warm gross outside. I’m thinking the night calls for homemade pizza, popcorn and hot chocolate alongside some family movie time. I am heartedly proclaiming Thank Goodness It’s Friday!
