Ouch! Root Canal


This morning I had a root canal procedure done on a tooth. While the procedure itself wasn't painful because of the wonderful Novocaine used, once it wore off I knew I had dental work done today! So much fun! I recently had a tooth break and had to have a crown put over the tooth. I was getting my bi-annual teeth cleaning/dental checkup when an abscess was discovered by an x-ray. I was not a happy camper. I am thankful that it was found before I was in pain with the abscess but was not happy to hear I was going to need a second crown within a four month time frame. Can you say cha-ching?
This afternoon while my mouth was letting me know of it's unhappiness I decided to distract myself by washing and ironing some fabric. Fabric is really about the only thing I iron willingly. I have a laundry basket that only holds quilting fabric that needs to be pre-washed. The basket is full. Guess what is on my list of things to do soon! Sadly (NOT) I will be going to some of my favorite quilting stores soon - guess what I will be bringing home with me? I will be good and try not to buy too much! Honest!!!!!!! I have finished one more Civil War block that I will be posting a photo of soon. One great thing about the Civil War blocks is that I have been going through my stash of reproduction fabrics for that era. I now have have a better idea of what colors I need to add or not add! I hope to fine some blacks, reds and blues. I do have lots of browns and pinks. I won't promise not to buy these colors, but I will focus on the three that I have the least of. I'll let you know what happens!

For me its blacks, reds and greens! Hope your tooth is feeling better - I've had my share of root canals and they are not fun!

I hope you will feel better soon! Maybe fabric shopping will make your pain fade away...

Oh you poor thing! I am so sorry about your tooth. Heck, my dentist bill to refill 3 cavities was nearly $700 bucks, so i can imagine what a root canal costs. I am so afraid of being in that position next time I go in.

Fabric shopping... buy much! You deserve it after all that!! That is what got me through mine :o)

Oh my, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with tooth problems. I used to be a dental assistant and I assisted on so many root canals. I wish I had even a vague idea of how many. It was one of the procedures I enjoyed because it was such a precision procedure. Fortunately, I've never had to have one. It would probably no longer be one of my favorites if I had to have one ;)
