Root Canal: Take 2

I went in for a root canal on 12/22 and he finished half of it. Apparently in our Molars, we have 3 canals. I was unaware of this! So, he found & cleared two of my canals that day. He was unable to find the 3rd canal, so they took x-rays and we agreed for me to come back to finish up.

That brings me to today! After being hooked up to the nitrace, getting Novocaine shots in my mouth, and feeling lots of pressure…I wake up from my little snooze to find out that it’s not over. In fact, it’s just beginning!!! He was unable to get into the 3rd canal. While trying to get in there, his file broke off in my gum! That’s right! I have metal stuck in my gums right now. All the Novocaine has definitely worn off & I’m in a little pain. I have to call the Endodontist in the morning to schedule the third shot at the root canal & to remove the file. I know you’re jealous!!!!!

So… That pretty much sums up my day!

We did good on day one of the best life diet. We both weighed this morning, I weighed…wait I’m not dumb!!! I’ll tell you once I’ve lost some of it!

Tonight after Jaxon went to bed I made a quick trip to TJMaxx! It was nice to walk around in the quiet store ALL BY MYSELF. I’d forgotten what that was like! I bought some socks & a cute pair of trendy jeans(hopefully they won’t fit for long).

Well I better get to bed…I have a feeling that tomorrow is going to be a little crazy!
