Dental Issues
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
I was up until 3:00 this morning with that damn tooth pain. Even the Hydrocodone wasn't helping to fully get rid of the pain and knock my arse out. I alternated between bed and couch trying to find a comfortable place. Then I burst into tears as a searing pain raked the right side of my face. Grim comforted me wonderfully and as another hour passed I finally fell into sweet oblivion. I woke up at 6 this morning and called my boss. I told her what had happened and that I needed a couple hours more sleep. She didn't call, which meant there was no problem. I got to work around 10 and called the dentist. I asked them if I could just have an antibiotic because it was definately absessed. They said they still wanted to see me. So I left work at 3:45 and went to my Dentist.

Guess What ?

It was absessed. It needs a root canal, that on average runs around 500 to 700 dollars. I have no dental insurance so that means that price range is what I am looking at. The dentist mentioned that we could come to an arrangement but he hasn't told me his price range yet. So tomorrow I set to looking for Insurance that is reasonable. Fat chance of that, but we'll see. To be honest, I am so tired of being in a constant state of pain all the time. Gotta love genetics, it is the only thing I can blame for this heightened rate of enamel decay. Le Sigh.

So I got an antibiotic and some more pain killers. I am tired enough now that I think if I go to bed I will actually sleep. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I also went out and got the Homespun Lionbrand yarn that I needed for the prayer shawl. It's going to be lovely. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

For Now I am off for some much needed rest.

    Aww I'm sorry! I know what that's like for sure. I need at least one root canal if not two. I'm off to the dentist tomorrow...
    And I don't have enough insurance to cover it either, since over here they run at least 1000 if not more.
