I guess today has been as good as any bad day can be. No day that starts with the dentist is going to be fantastic.
On the bright side, my cavities are now all filled, but I don’t remember it hurting this much. I don’t mean the actual drilling– I mean the days and weeks after. I got the first half of my caveties filled three weeks ago and they only just started to feel normal this week.
Today I only had two cavities which was a nice surprise: I thought I had three. Doesn’t make it pleasant though. Part of my gum was accidentally pinched during the filling. You know it’s going to be bad when the dentist warns you. Still, that gives me a totally legitimate excuse to have a milkshake. As excuses go, I’ll take a pinched gum over wisdom teeth or tonles. Anyway, I think the numbness is worse than the pain. No matter how many times I have novacane there will always be a little part of my brain that’s afraid the feeling won’t come back.
Matt has another trip down to Cincinnatti, so I’m riding along. Getting a little sick of traveling, but at least it’s not too far. Besides, we’ve just come to a Steak & Shake, so now I get my milkshake!
