Here's a grinder!
So in the last week and a half I have had the pleasure, nay, the priviledge, of going to the dentist not once, not twice, but thrice. I am thrilled because I don't have to go in for another two weeks. Hooray for me! I was even lucky enough to get a denist who just graduated from dental school... in may! Double hooray! I 've got lots of crap in my mouth. That is not what I meant to say!!! I meant I have to get a lot of crap done in my mouth!! I don't have crap in my mouth(or in my crack). I started out with pain which is why I went in. I came out with pain because they practically drilled down to the root of my tooth which was a little tramatic for toothy. When that pain subsided I had new pain due to millions of canker sores in the back of my mouth, under my tongue which caused me to believe that I might have some sort of infection or perhaps strep. That was fun. I thought i should get it checked out because I coudn't actually see the canker sores. that tongue is a buggered to see around. I drove an hour and fifteen minutes into Abilene to get checked out and since I took the time to drive in they thought it wise to fill some more cavities for me. No sense in wasting all that gas for nothing! So thoughtful! Left with a fat lip and a fat filling. More discomfort. Went back two days later to get a crown. Those are awesome! They numb you up again and file down your tooth, jam things into your gums, which still causes some discomfort, put goo in your mouth and you leave with some temporary thing they'll rip off in two weeks. I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it. I'm about to loose control and I think I like it! At least this time I came home with some codene!! Definately lucky for me! Now we're about to take off on a trip to see Ben's family and if this temp crown happens to come off it has to be put back on within 12 hours! I'll let you know!
