And only a few more days to go before our cruise. I was beginning to feel more like my old self when last night my upper jaw started throbbing. Today has been hell and I have been pill popping with pain killers throughout the day so a phone call to the dentist saw me getting an emergency appointment at 3.20pm. By 3.40pm I was called in and by 5.10pm I was out. Lighter by 2 teeth, my wisdom and the one next to it! I couldn't believe how long it took but when I heard a loud crack as the second tooth was being pulled and the dentist said she had just snapped the tooth from its roots leaving them in the gum, I panicked slightly. I had been warned that if that happened I may have to go to hospital and have the gum cut to remove the pieces left inside. I was relieved when another more senior dentist was called to rectify the situation and sure enough within minutes out came the root. Result! I came out very thankful that my jaw was numb but knew that once the anesthetic wore off I would be pill popping again tonight! I'm praying that this will be the final thing to go wrong before we set sail because both of us have certainly had our fair share of ailments!
I must just show you this photo taken this morning. My total page views had reached all the 1's.
