Yesterday we went to Hinton Ampner and strolled around fields full of sheep.  It was still cold but it felt wonderful to get out in the fresh air without being pelted down with rain.

But that was yesterday and today has been totally different.

I had an early morning appointment with the dentist today to extract a molar which had split in two after a root canal filling.  Last week when I went for the check up I knew I would have to lose my tooth just like today I *knew* the extraction wouldn’t be successful.  So after 3 injections and an almost panic attack, the tooth cracked and the dentist didn’t have the equipment necessary to remove all of the tooth.  I now have to wait, with upper tooth missing but root intact,  to be referred to hostpital for surgery.

I’m on yet another course of antibiotics to stop the infection and I bought some painkillers as the pain was becoming unbearable.  I try not to take medication and use natural remedies but tooth pain seems to be in a class all of its own. I gave birth to 3 big babies naturally but when it comes to teeth I can’t handle it.

When I came home from the dentist I burst into tears.  I feel so emotional about losing my tooth.  And I’m worried about going to the hospital already.  It was such a horrible experience at the dentist and I don’t want it repeated.

But life goes on and I’ll get over it 🙂
