No one else takes a selfie while at the dentist? Both times I took them, I got “caught” and they thought it was funny, but not unexpected. 😀
I had to get two cavities filled. The original plan was a single one, with maybe the one in the front (I had a filling fall out), but nope. That back one needed a root canal. Because of the constant pain, I got moved in as an emergency patient.
So, since I didn’t eat before we left (because of nerves), we stopped at McDonald’s. Everyone else got yummy food. I was stuck with soft foods. So, I went with what I knew I’d love, but wouldn’t be disappointed to NOT have again 😉
I got a vanilla milkshake. I knew getting a frappe would be a BAD idea. Caffeine and nerves? Asking for something to go wrong, 😆
Waiting for the root canal. I got to watch traffic while I waited. This was while the right side of my face slowly got feeling back in it, 😆
I had one canal not filled/whatever because it was calcified. He was worried about the tooth becoming weaker (a piece BROKE OFF while he was working on it, so I don’t blame him for that), and since I didn’t have an abscess, and he couldn’t see on x-ray where the canal started, he said we’d just keep an eye on it. Means more x-rays when I go in for cleanings and fillings and things).
And I made it home alive 😀 Thus far, no real pain, but I took my pain reliever that I was prescribed as soon as I got home, as well as my antibiotic. Now I’ve had my muscle relaxer because of my jaw being stretched so widely. It locked twice :O
I was admonished again for “sipping” sodas. So, I found the water bottle I wanted. It’s 63-oz! It didn’t come with the pink thing. That came with another water bottle but it fit in the slot perfectly. So, I now have a big cup for work that won’t leak if it falls over in my truck. And it’s huge. I won’t RUN OUT of water while I’m working!
