I have been dealing with a major toothache for the last few days...it started about 2 weeks ago, I saw the dentist and they thought they might need to do a couple of root canals. I am TERRIFIED of the dentist and I take Valium before I go, even if it's just for a simple cleaning. With this toothache though, I practically begged my husband to call to make another appointment for me!!
I was sent to a specialist and he indicated that the tooth is too far gone for a root canal and pulling it is the only solution, so tomorrow morning, I will be downing my Valium and off I go. Thank God my hubby will be with me to hold my hand. Literally.
Outside of the dental pain, my overall pain has been at it's usual steady 4 and that's by taking the breakthrough meds every 5 hours. My doctor was away for most of January, so it's time to book an appointment to see her. I've also injured my knee somehow, so I'll need that looked at.
Yesterday, all the family was over - both my kids, their respective partners (and the son of my daughter's boyfriend who is 13, and a really neat kid), my niece and hubby and I - we were celebrating my son's 29th Birthday. I can't believe I'm the mom of a 29 year old...it's crazy! He's all freaked out by the fact he's going to be 30 next year...which means I will be 50! Wow, does the time ever fly by quickly!!
So, that's life at the moment. I haven't been around very much here as I've been dealing with a lot of personal stuff, but I am sending good thoughts and healing wishes to everyone!
