So I'm sitting here with an icepack on my face, and a tooth that feels like it wants to explode. How can my tooth feel worse now then when it had the crater in it? I had a filling fall out, oh about 6 weeks ago. Do you think I could manage to drag myself to the dentist before it was a problem? Nope! I mean who really wants to go to the dentist? I kept saying, I'll call in 10 minutes, an hour, tomorrow. I didn't I waited until it started throbbing. So I guess it really is like the oxygen mask on an air plane. We need to take care of ourselves too. If I would have called fist thing I could be taking care of my kids right now, instead of dumping them on the husband. Also I wouldn't have and icepack on my face, and be contemplating taking one of those percocet's left over from having little Leighty.
