The dentist [Apr. 1st, 2004|08:56 pm]
[mood |uncomfortableuncomfortable]

Today I had my first major appointment with my new dentist. 4 out of 8 teeth were pulled. The other 4 will be pulled in 2 weeks.

I hate dental needles. I can deal with any other type of needle, but I really hate shots in my mouth. I have to say that Dr. S. is just as gentle as he can be. I was so nervous going in I was shaking and feeling a little ill, but he really made it as pleasant as getting teeth pulled can be.

I hate that he's going to be leaving in June. He's moving back up to Michigan when his residency is done and I hate to lose him. He's going to be a great dentist and a lot of people will be lucky to have him do their work.

I can't wait till this is all done and I have a pretty smile again. I love to smile and it's been driving me crazy that I feel uncomfortable every time I open my mouth.

The pain meds are kicking in, so I better go lay down before I fall out of my chair. I haven't eaten anything since yesterday and I have some chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream, but I'm just not hungry yet.

Glad to see you up and posting. Mine went fine today too, and I'm finally done, woohoo! At least we had a new ER tonight, even though it was boring. Neela and Gallant? No chemistry. Loves ya. Call as soon as you feel up to talking.
