I chipped a tooth.
Cracked it, broke it, whatever.
Went to the dentist and of course I also need some other work done.
He says it's pretty amazing that I am not in pain because I've got some pretty bad infections.
I've always had bad teeth - I'm slowly replacing them. Back to the story.
So, he starts the work today. I'm in the chair for at least 3 hours with my Jaw agape.
Ran into complications because of the infection.
The tooth in the worst shape kept giving me pain.
Was shot up with a TON of Novocaine, it kept wearing off.
That tooth was shot up an additional 4 times, kept wearing off.
I want to go to sleep but I'm in tremendous pain.
I had some tears running down my face not so long ago.
Rocking myself back and forth waiting for the Hydrocodone to kick in.
I just want to sleep.
I took some pills with water and half a banana.
I've got at least one tooth that right now is super sensitive to cold water.
This is going to make the next week or two fun.
The good thing about pain is that no matter how bad it is, once it's gone you never remember it.
Pain is temporary.
In the long run this is all going to be worth while.
I'll have a pretty smile (You got a pretty mouth boy) - a pretty expensive smile.
It will be all fake but it'll still be mine.
I have 4 of the next 5 days off.
I think I'm going to eat a lot of soup.
Between being sick last week and having to watch what I eat because of the dental work I'm dropping weight pretty rapidly.
I'll give a report when I'm back to eating regular meals - but my "goal" of 220 is going to be obtainable before summer.
Maybe I'll take a second Hydrocodone - sleep like a baby.
I'll write something less whiny tomorrow.
