...compared to going to the dentist!! Those of you who disagree then you are NUTS!! I went to the dentist this morning and left feeling like I had been hit by a freight train! I had TWO ROOT CANALS along with a TOOTH EXTRACTION which is just a fancy way of saying "yanking the tooth out however it will come". No kidding that is what it felt like.
I was literally curled up in a ball while it took my dentist at least 45 minutes to get all of my tooth out. She had to cut it into two pieces and I would not be surprised if she wasn't standing on the side of the chair pulling as hard as she could to get it out!! I don't know because I didn't open my eyes...I was afraid I would see her face and it would be straining!!! Anyway, after sawing it into two pieces, cutting into my bone to get all the roots, a few stitches later, about 20 shots to try to numb it, she finally got it out.
This was also a glorious day because I have officially finished my first class at school! Five weeks later and I have completed an entire class...it is kind of rewarding. I didn't get to give my five minute presentation because of my swollen jaw and I didn't do as much class participation as I normally do but oh well. Some were proably glad that I wasn't talking...LOL! I doubt it though because I think that I am pretty interesting!!! :)
This was my only day off and I spent it at the dentist and at school so I didn't get a whole lot more accomplished. I have so much to do in the next 3 days and I work every one of them. I am leaving to go to Alcoa on Sunday at 2pm for some training and I am really worried. I have never been away from Wilkins for more than a night or so. I am going to be there until Wednesday evening so anybody who thinks about me please pray. I would say pray for Wilkins too but they always say parents miss their kids more than the kids miss their parents...
