The attack of dental h3LL
Yes, that's right...I speak in 3l173 speak (and if you can't read that - GOOD FOR YOU...you aren't a dork) during the medicinal bliss caused by Loratab 7.5.

I think I need to borrow this guy's magic life jacket. Maybe I'll quit having so many issues (physical, not mental...I know the magic life jacket will not help the mental aspect).

So Monday I went and got Braum's for lunch. I went back to the law firm and sat out in my car to eat. Lo and behold...the abscess under tooth 30 ruptured. It was disgusting. Most of it was blood. So I called the office manager and told her that I had to try and get in to see the dentist. By the time I got back to Noble from OKC, I was completely and utterly sick. I called The Cop Magnet at work. Then I called my mother to keep me awake on the drive home. We called my dentist and they more or less said, "Welp, nothing we can do about it. Go to the doctor." I was like, "Hello....you are the dentist right? This tooth was something you told me was taken care of." So I called my doctor and he called in an antibiotic.

I was up all Monday night with a monster headache. The Cop Magnet got me a doctor's appointment for Tuesday. I was almost in tears by the time we got there because my head was hurting so badly. The doctor gave me a shot for nausea (byproduct of the migraine caused by the ruptured abscess) and sent me home with strict instructions to call if the headache doesn't go away.

So this morning when I got up, I was completely sick. My head was still hurting but I felt better than yesterday. The Cop Magnet got me an appointment with a different dentist. By the time we got there, I was in tears. I have a high pain tolerance...and I was crying. The dentist looked and said she didn't know why the other dentist hadn't pulled the tooth earlier. It is a back tooth and there is no saving it. It is cracked on BOTH sides. She was put me on nitrous (which took the headache away) and then called my doctor. My doctor decided I should pre-medicate before they pull the tooth. The dentist is a little concerned that I am hard to numb up (how many people do you know that woke up during heart surgery?).

So I was sent home with yet another doctor's note (my doctor kept me out of work yesterday and today and the dentist doesn't want me to go back until Monday). I get to go back tomorrow at noon.

The concern now is that since I have a headache because of the abscess, there is a slight chance the infection is now into my sinuses. So now I am on TWO antibiotics and one pain medication. The problem with Loratab is that while it takes the pain away, it makes me hyper. Guess I'll work on my algebra tonight.

Can I get a magic life jacket? Please? Crying 6

    Well, there's an upside to everything :) Let's just hope that you don't do anything stupid while severely medicated (i.e. something that would contradict your "guidelines," or even end up being one).

    Seriously though, hope you start feeling and getting better soon :)

    OW! I am so sorry. (And also jealous of the Loretab) I hope we all feel better soon. Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. If I find a magic life jacket, I'll split it with you.

    ReY - don't worry...I won't. That usually comes after waking up from anesthetic.

    Melessa - if we split the life jacket...will it still be magic?

    I am so sorry that you mouth is giving you trouble! I hope the antibiotic works, and quickly too!

    My mouth gives me more trouble...even when it doesn't have an infection.
