The awful dentist
Unlike Betsy I am not grateful for a dentist. Alright maybe a little. I broke a tooth on my way down to Utah in October. I had been putting off a root canal anyway but it was desperately needed that I go in. I was putting it off still, when Erika made a good point. I didn't want to be in Hawaii and get a terrible tooth ache and not enjoy our vacation. So I went into the dentist today and it turned out I had put it off too long. It had to be extracted. Thank goodness it was my back tooth. After two hours of digging out my roots and stitching my gums back up I am in great pain. I hate medicine but it has come to no choice. I filled the prescription and got the Loratabs. Last time I took pain medicine I ended up throwing up outside the hospital and sleeping all day. I rather not take them. I am really goofy right now but I feel wierd as well but at least there is no pain (at least for now). All I can say is that next time, in no way, am I putting it off.
