3 tubes of lidocaine later…

2 1/2 hours later and three tubes of lidocaine I’m finally back home. Right side of my face is completely numb and feels droopy.

You see it all started a week ago, I went to the dentist for a cleaning and found out I had a cracked tooth. It was one of those silver fillings you can get for cavitys. Well it cracked and took my tooth with it.

Now I have to admit I’m glad the dentist found it and that I never had pain from it. But today was the day to get it repaired, the plan was to drill the filling out and remove cracked part of tooth.

Well the dentist did that and then took another xray as he always does and found the nerve was now on the bottom surface of my tooth. Sooo  I now need a root canal.

So the dentist prepped tooth for that procedure which I’ll have in 2weeks and put me on antibiotics. I was bummed as soon as he said the ‘A’ word. I have low immunity and due to it have for the last 8 years been on antibiotics year round due to many infections. I catch everything. If I know someone is sick I avoid them.

Well last time I was on antibiotics was August. Long story short my doctor wanted me on antibiotics last week due to a leg issue but decided I have been able to fight something’s off as of late, so he chose to not treat with antibiotics. And now this happens 😦

So on antibiotics I go. And on probiotics. I was doing so good. It was great to feel strong for those few months.

And now I once again long to be antibiotic free!

My husbands special feet

So my hubby has flat feet. They hurt all the time. This year is the year we’ve chosen to find out why.

In August he visited a podiatrist to get feet checked. Findings were that his feet are very flat and he’d benefit from having special orthodic shoes made.

We addressed our insurance company who immediately stamped “DENIED” on the request. The shoes are too costly for us to afford to pay cash.

Well my husband is in pain daily. His job demands he be on his feet walking all day.

Well today our primary doctor suggested we get him Dr Scholls orthodic shoe inserts. We went to CVS right away and bought them. There is a machine you stand on to test how you stand and pressure points on your feet. Then it tells you what number you need.

Our primary doctor said if my hubby feels better with these that he will go to war with our insurance company for us so my hubby can get the shoes.
