Well, from Monday nights' post, I told you that my face was hurting - all my upper teeth on the left side of my mouth. I assumed it was sinus pressure and everyone I talked to agreed. I called my brother-in-law (who's my dentist) yesterday and he said that it sounded like sinus pressure too. Well, after a night a intense pain medicine and antibiotics and steriods, the pain was worse than ever - I'm talking lay in the bed, everytime I get up I'm about to puke or pass out pain. To make matters worse, Henderson decided to wake up 3 times last night with a fever. He's fine now, but I stayed home from work with him. About 10:00 this morning I couldn't take it anymore, so I called my brother-in-law and they worked me in.
I had an absessed tooth - DEAD as a doorknob - more painful than childbirth (or the after pains) and I've had 3 C-sections!!!
I had Henderson with me at the dental office, so I called my father-in-law and bless his heart, he came and picked him up (my mother-in-law and sister-in-law are out of town). I called my best friend - whose husband happens to be my brother-in-law's dentist partner and she picked Emma Claire up from school and took her to gymnastics. Wilson stayed at school.
I stayed at the dental office and had 2 root canals - Yep, 2! The first one didn't quite get it all, so they had to go back in - it was bad (not the root canal - enough Nitrous Oxide and even the worst tooth pain goes away), but the tooth was BAD - apparently I probably knocked it on the head of one of the children at one point and thought nothing of it (you know what I'm talking about - wrestling or tickling the children and BAM head or fist in the mouth - happens all the time!)
I'm a different person now - totally pain free (thanks to 2 WONDERFUL dentists and a little Lortab) All the children are sound asleep (and I need to be), and I am on the computer. Well, off to rest - or clean my house!!!!
A BIG HUGE Thank You to Stan, William, GrandDaddy Bud, Ashley, and the school for helping out and understanding!
