Day 138 of 365: Ow ow ow!


I barely made it through the night last night and as a result, I had a visit to the dentist this morning to confirm an infection. I paid him £16.50 to poke my gums a couple times and give me a prescription for Amoxicillin. Then, lucky me...I have an appointment for 9:20am tomorrow morning to see if they get to extract the wisdom tooth that is causing the pain.

I was pretty disappointed to be missing one of Em's Sunday Roast dinners, until...


Matt brought me this back...my own little version of Meals on Wheels!


Plenty of soft veggies and I enjoyed every last morsel (paying for the movement in my jaw later, of course...).

SO worth it! Thanks Emma (and thank you Daz for my little foil message)!!!

You made it this long with your wisdom teeth?! That's impressive!

They haven't caused me any problems until now...and it's only the one on the right side at the bottom because it's partially impacted.

Dude I hope this never happens to me.. I have never had a bit of problem with my wisdom teeth! Now saying that watch them start acting up.. *ugh*

I did however have a chipped tooth like 6 years ago and it was chipped in the back so I did not know it and it got infected and I had to take antibiotics for 7 days before they could do a root canal.. That was the worst 7 days of my LIFE!! The pain was so bad it was shooting down my right arm. But they would not do the root canal while the infection was there. I will never forget that pain, I had to sleep sitting straight up for that week using an airline pillow because of the pressure when I laid down was too much. Never want to go thru that again. Good Luck!!!!
