I haven't posted in a few days; as you know from my previous posts I've had probems with a few teeth; well I really got sick from a absessed wisdom tooth; let me tell ladies; I've had 2 children totally "natural" and Ash weighted 10lbs 2oz!! I have a high pain tolerance; but this here brought it right up outta me..my glands got infected and swollen I looked like I had the mumps on one side. I went to my dentist on Thursday and he said he couldn't do anything til I got the infection under control; so he gave me some mega antibotic & pain pills and he told me if the swelling got worse to go to the ER. Well I woke up at 1:30 a.m. Saturday and couldn't swollow; I woke Kenny and he took me to the ER. They put me on an I.V. w/2 different antibotics and a steroid that took some of the swelling down; I've hardly ate for 4 days; I can't swollow; it hurts so bad. I had to call off work on Saturday and I NEVER do that. I still can't swollow without pain, but I go to the dentist today at 1:30 to hopefully get it pulled. I just hope it gets numb; I've had others tell me that sometimes the tooth won't get numb if it's infected? So, I'm scared now..LOL I haven't stitched for days...and sure do miss it. Hopefully I will feel like picking up a needle today.
