I know I'm a new blogger, but I have already went MIA :( I'm sorry, but I have a pretty good reason..
On Saturday, in the middle of scrapbooking (which is a challenge for me normally!), my tooth started to hurt. I didn't think much of it, my teeth are sensitive from brushing too hard as a kid, I have worn the enamel down. But by Easter afternoon I was on Orajel, 4 Advil and still crying on the couch in pain.
I called every dentist in NH until I found one to take me on Monday, and immediately discovered that I had a huge abscess in my tooth. I had to go for an emergency root canal. I went to the endodontist right away. The infection was so bad that they had to stitch a drain into my gums to get it out. And apparently novocaine and similar meds do not take as well in infected tissue, so I had three shots before I was numb. The drilled out the problem but could not complete the root canal. I had the drain out yesterday (and they almost couldn't get it out, and thought they had to anesthetize me again, but finally did it.) The put in a temporary filling but I have to go back to have the root canal finished and then to the dentist to have a crown put on. And we discovered that the dental insurance we enrolled in when Chad got this new job last year...apparently is nonexistent. So we have to pay all of this out of pocket...almost as painful as a throbbing face. I do have some pics of things I made with SAB stuff and I am making cards tomorrow night, so I hope I have something for you soon!
Hey...at least I scrapped 34 pages on Saturday :)
