Well, That’s Over With

See the source image

The Novocain’s still got half my face, and I have to keep biting down on a thick gauze pad to stop the bleeding, and my jaw feels like I was lucky it wasn’t snapped off–but other than that, I’m okay.

Because the tooth had fractured into a jillion pieces under the crown, I was afraid this was going to be a long and complicated ordeal. But it only seemed that way. “Everything went perfectly,” the surgeon assured me.

I can’t talk because I have to keep my remaining teeth clamped down on this gauze, and there’s no point in resorting to a comforting cigar until the Novocain wears off.

Enough. There’s news to cover.

Thank you all for your prayers.

  1. That’s the ticket – concentrate on someone who is worse off that yourself.
    Glad that is over for you. I went through the same or similar last summer.
    Not fun, but it does end.

  2. Praise the Lord that it went well and quickly — although I’m sure the recovery time doesn’t feel quick at all. 🙁

    1. Qualifying? Qualifying? How elitist! Don’t you know that if Joe wants to be a dentist, he’s entitled to be a dentist just by identifying as a dentist?
