MORE FUN than a barrel of monkeys

Well Monday night my upper pre-molar was throbbing (not the one that broke) I thought maybe I ate something that got in behind the crappy old filling & irritated the nerve. After taking 4 Motrin & not getting any relief by 11pm I took 2 Nyquil gel thingys and at least slept through the night.

Tuesday I called the Dentist & Marte got me in that afternoon, Cheryl took x-rays which showed that tooth as fractured. JOY!
Dr. Chris asked which tooth I wanted fixed Thursday Morning.....well that was a no brainer!!! He sent me home with a RX for antibiotics & pain meds.

This morning Dr. Chris did the root canal (himself) and I get to go back next week for the other tooth. So far so good, I took 1/2 a pain pill before leaving the office & the other half 2 hours later, before lunch. The novocaine is finally almost completely worn off (the second set of injections) so I just took another 1/2 .

Now I am trying to tie up some loose ends in my office, finish packing for the weekend, pass along a few prayer requests & answer a few emails.

Why is it every year between January & March we seem to have 'emergencies' arise?
Usually it is an appliance or vehicle that breaks down & our tax refund is spent before it is filed. . .
This year it seems it will be spent on Veterinary bills & Dental Bills....Now I will be the 'Million dollar wife" since my two visits will total $600 out of our pockets, WHY DO WE HAVE INSURANCE?

Well back to packing!!!

Blessings 2 U Friend
