The big day, sort of

Going to the dentist day for me! Today is the day I've been waiting for for some time now. This time it isn't to get the typical cleaning, it's to have a root canal done. I've had one before. I've been putting this appointment off for some time now and dealing with teeth pain in the meantime. My bottom back tooth broke awhile ago and I've been nursing it along. Root canals aren't completely covered by our dental insurance so I wanted to make sure we had the funds saved up to cover the half insurance doesn't cover. I don't want to owe the dentist anything past due. Nice thing though, is that I've been informed that they don't charge for the laughing gas anymore. I got the laughing gas last time and I'm sure looking forward to getting some today too!!
I'm looking forward to going today, so I can be out of pain soon, but before I went to bed last night this little red spot started appearing on my chin......yup you guessed it, it's a zit! Of all days for this to appear and of all places, it happens to be on the day I go see the dentist! I'm not sure what make-up foundation will cover this thing, couldn't it be on my forehead under my hair or somewhere else, urgh! Hopefully the dentist will be looking at my teeth and not my zit! O'well, I'll get in, have the root canal done, and before you know it I'll be at home where the people love me no matter what I look like. Besides beauty is within, right?
1 Samuel 16:7b "For God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart".


  1. I hope it goes well at the dentist! I've never had a root canal -- but I put off cleanings!! My children LOVE going to the dentist -- never did understand that one!

  2. I hope all goes well! I need to go sooo bad, but we have no dental insurance at all, so that won't be happening any time soon. I watched my dad get a root canal done once, and it scared me half to death! I was only a child though. I had one of my back teeth break a little, and I got lucky, they were able to just put a parial crown on it. I found a nice dentist who did it for only $485. We still had to sell a vehicle though, to pay for it.

    I hope this eases all your pain...there is nothing more painful in my opinion than that of tooth pain!

  3. The best part about going today is the pain will be gone with all that has been happening since you've cracked your tooth. I've been there so many times!

    Here is hoping that you are feeling better soon and wishing that the dental plans really covered crowns!

  4. Well I love you no matter how many zits you have, LOL! Gee at my age I still get them. You probably got it from stressing over going, I am sure the dentist has seen worse in his profession and won't even notice., love you lot's!!, your mil

  5. The good news is that once they gave you the laughing gas, you probably couldn't have cared less about the zit!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Would love for you to visit again soon! I'll be brousing yours in days to come. In the meantime, I hope your dental experience finds you resting pain-free soon!
