I'd been having a toothache over the weekend and I pretty much knew I was going to need a root canal. Tooth pain is the worst. Somehow it also hurts in your nose and ears and your brain and then you get nauseated. The pain got pretty bad, so I called several doctors on Monday morning trying to find someone who could get me in that day and accepted our insurance. Luckily, I found a great endodontist and had it completed Monday afternoon. I felt great until the Novocaine or whatever it was wore off. Then the pain really started. I hustled over with the kids to get my prescriptions filled. They told me it would be about an hour and I drove away to get the kids a Happy Meal, but soon realized I didn't think I could wait even an hour. It was the kind of pain where you can't hold still. I felt so silly, but I drove back through the pharmacy drive thru and basically cried to the pharmacist and told her I was in a lot of pain and needed my prescription NOW. Some of the longest 20 minutes of my life I tell you! I called Nate in tears and tried to get a hold of myself to get the medicine in me. To make a long story short, it was a miserable evening. When my pain medication wasn't working I even had Nate try some of the battlefield acupuncture he had learned recently. Night went okay. I woke up this morning and as I went downstairs to get Natalie some milk I suddenly got sick as a dog. And really sweaty. Thankfully after I got some food in me I was okay and things have been going good since then. So glad that is behind me.
