An Apple A Day...

Have you ever been tempted to avoid something? Like, oh I don't know, the dentist? Yeah, don't do that. Don't be like me and avoid the dentist for any reason if you can help it. I've been in pain for a while now and finally made an appointment out of guilt and pain. Yesterday, I had a three hour root canal, post, and crown session. THREE hours. No amount of TV above my face or music playing in my ears can make that pleasant my friends. None. 

And no, I didn't take a photo while they were actually working on me. There were quite a few of breaks since it was a lot of work. By the end I was starting to feel stuff. More than just pressure. Not enough to warrant another shot in my mouth but just enough that it was really starting to hurt. Not fun. So, they gave me a huge Ibuprofen to help. I'm done with the root canal, four roots later, and just have 2 two hour appointments left for deep cleanings. 

By the way, I have to share that I was listening to my iPod when one of my favorite Christian artists Matthew West came on. I tried not to giggle when I heard this line from his song Do Something come on, "If not now then when, will we see an end to all this pain". Haha. Now, I know he wasn't talking about dentist related pain but still, I thought it was funny at the time.
