Grumble, Grumble, Grumble

Yes, I AM grumbling and complaining.  Why? Well, I have this *issue*. I want to know why God gave me such miserable TEETH!

I had a dental appointment today for a cleaning.

A few days ago, guess what happened?  I was eating a piece of pizza. When I finished, I walked down to the mailbox to grab the mail. On my way back, I *suddenly* noticed this very strange feeling in my mouth. In running my tongue over a molar way in the back of my mouth, it became obvious I had lost a major amount of the tooth!

As soon as my name was called today, I told the hygienist that I lost part of my tooth. YIKES! Call in the National Guard. OK, so that is a slight exaggeration.  Instead, I had x-rays taken. When the dentist looked at them, he asked for yet another x-ray to be done.

By this point, I was telling myself to “breathe”. Yes, I am one of those normally rational human beings that goes into neurotic spasms at the thought of dental work!

The dentist came in after the hygienist finished cleaning my teeth. (she really didn’t have much work to do, as I am very good at cleaning my teeth!) He brought in a sheet of paper…ugh….my heart fell to the floor.

Yes, he explained that I could sit back and RELAX, as all the work ahead is *his* work. It is *just* my MOUTH! The bad news is, I need a root canal. The tooth that broke was so full of fillings, it just cracked and broke.  After the root canal, I get a new crown! Lucky, lucky me!

So, if I appear to be in a foul mood, just ignore my rantings. It will pass with time. I just hate bad dental news!
