To say I have had better days is an understatement. First I have been fighting a cold that took a turn for the worse yesterday. As I was going to bed last night I noticed I also had a tooth ache. I was a bit concerned because we have a flight in a couple of days, but took some motrin and went to bed. I was up a couple of hours later with the worst tooth ache I have ever had. Breathing through my mouth was painful, but I was also so congested I couldn't breathe through my nose. And I had an awful sore throat. And kept coughing. Which made everything hurt more.
Called my dentists office first thing and they had me come right in. It was decided I needed a root canal. Today. Ugh...
The endodontist they referred me to could not see me until the end of the day. I was out of my head with pain, there was no way I could wait that long!
Luckily there was another office that was able to take me right away. I was called at home and told to come right in. I was out the door in about 2 minutes. Halfway there I realized I didn't have any underwear on (don't ask, long story).
Doesn't this look like fun? The worst part was, I couldn't breathe through my nose and they covered my mouth with this rubber dam!! I felt like I was suffocating the entire time.
Now I sit here, numb, drooling on myself, waiting for my 2 pm patient to arrive.
