Dentists

I hate them. I woke up with a huge problem yesterday, got in to my dentist, and he promptly referred me to an endodontist (sp?) today. I cried in the chair it hurt so badly. I haven't done that since I was about six. And I look like I have the mumps.

I was going to go on another fabric diet. That won't be hard. I spent $91 yesterday and $1255 today FOR DENTAL WORK. And we're not done.

I'll blog about retreat in a couple of days. I just want to go to bed now.

Gratitudes:

~ Antibiotics
~ Chicken noodle soup
~ Yogart
~ Daisy -- well, not tonight. She's really munching down on her hard food in there. I'm jealous!!

I'm sorry . . sorry about the pain, sorry about the money it costs to get it fixed but I hope you'll see a huge improvement in the way you feel tomorrow. If not, call me and I'll hop on a plane and come fix some soup for you.

Was that $1255 a typo?! Phew... I don't know if I could spend that much if I tried really hard for a week. :P

Hope you feel better tomorrow!

Oy, I hate the dentist too... Luckily my follwo up will only be about $500 - but my husband got a similar follow-up appointment scheduled, too. We are both waiting for January after of HSA's kick in again!

Hope you feel better real soon!

You have my sympathy! I love my dentist but I still hate going for any kind of procedure. I always have.

Yvonne said...

Sorry on all accounts....I do hope you are feeling better. If not, you could take Judy up on her offer. :)

Glad to hear that Daisy is chewing on food rather than your thread collection.

Beth said...

Ugh, I hate dentists too. Hope the antibiotics fix you right up. Ok, now, you spent $1255 on quilting stuff? Was that a typo??? If not, what the heck did you buy???

Darlene said...

Oh, I'm so sorry to read about your pain - serious pain. There's nothing worse than visit to the dentist.

I hope you feel better today!

Nan said...

I'm so sorry about all your 'fun' at the dentist! I am not fond of them either, but they are an evil necessity. I hope you're feeling better soon, Vicky! Take care!

Vickie E said...

Oh this was hard to read. Being a dentist myself...whew...

atet said...

Vicky -- ouch! I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you are feeling up to par soon -- I want to see the loot from your retreat purchases and your progress on yoru project!!!

Kim said...

Oh, bummer, Vicky! I hope you're starting to feel better! Here's a tip, though: Stay away from the drive thru at McDonald's. Between your little bit of a southern accent and your swollen mouth, I can't even imagine what they might think you're trying to order! I do think that you should buy yourself a little get well gift from the FQ shop, though! That's what I'd do anyway!

you poor baby...nothing is worse than that sort of dental pain-especially when you have to go to a specialist and spend tons of money on getting your mouth not hurting! hope the next visit went better and you are lots better now! at least it happened after your retreat...it would have been the pits to have to leave early due to severe dental pain!

Kim said...

Are you any better? I've been thinking about you and hoping you're in less pain today.

Hanne said...

I hope you will feel better real soon!
Dentists are no fun for the wallet, but much better than troublesome teeth.
I am fabric dieting too - in case you want company :-)

Faith said...

I hope you get to feel better soon, dentists are not nice places when you come out in even more pain.

Erin said...

I am so sorry you had to spend all the $$$ and you are still not done and you have pain too! I hope you are feeling better :) gentle hugs
