I got in to the dentist this morning and sure enough, it was as bad as I had feared. I have been babying a tooth for a few years now, but this head-cold, sinus infection that I have, did it in. My weakened immune system allowed the infection to spread to that tooth. For the sensitive among us, you may want to turn away. The nerve had abscessed and infection had spread to the roof of my mouth. The first thing my darling dentist did though was to put me out of my misery. Praise the Lord! Really! I was so very thankful. She gave me the best shot I have ever received (thankfully not lethal, but at that point, I wasn't being too picky). Needless to say, it wore off all too quickly though.
Then after a quick x-ray, she did a speedy root canal, packed the tooth with meds and sent me on my merry, well maybe not all too merry, way.
Thanks to an ice pack and some ibuprofen, I proceeded to sleep the rest of the afternoon away.
It has been a marvelous protein shake kind of a day. I got my 8 glasses of water in though! Woo Hoo!
Thank you to everyone who was praying for me. Keep it up! I'm on the mend, but not up to Nordic walking yet - maybe tomorrow.
Off to take a pH bath now and try to fight the remainder of the infection.
Good night all!
See you in the morning!
