Tooth Be Gone!

After many shots to numb my mouth, the molar was finally pulled.  I won't be chewing on that side of my mouth for a few days, but I haven't been chewing on that side for months anyway.  The oral surgeon said that even if I had opted for the root canal, I would have been in to see him anyway.  The tooth was cracked and split in two when he first touched it.  Good decision. Now, I just have to endure soft foods and bad breath for a few days.

And for the really good news:  15 more days in "Trailer High."  And yes, I am counting down!

You'll feel better pretty soon, I know from experience.

It's hard to believe it's December already and that the Christmas season has begun.

Enjoy ~ FlowerLady

Is it a C side of the family thing that we need more than one shot to numb us? It usually takes two for me and my daughter. Hope you feel better soon!

Just thinking about that tooth makes me wince. Only 15 more days! So excited for you!

My dentist is trying to talk me into a multimillion dollar crown rather than just getting it pulled.....more money in it for him that way. He already drives a Porsche, so out the tooth will come...one day!

Hope you are feeling better! If I was close enough, I would have made you chicken soup. Ooooh, or potato soup (without any chunks of potato - basically, it's mashed potato soup. Sooooo good!).
