The appointment today was not nearly as excruciating as I thought it would be. Kent-being the BEST husband in the world- came with me :). They almost didn't let him in- and then they saw that I was seven months pregnant and almost in tears. The dentist took one look at the gaping hole in my tooth and said "definitely a root canal". I'd prepared myself so much that it wasn't even that shocking to hear. Unfortunately I have to get authorization from my insurance company so they couldn't do the work today. I did, however, have another "baby cavity" that needed to be filled. The dentist was impressively fast and the whole thing was surprisingly pain free. I think I always imagine that it is going to be so much worse than it really is. I'm sure the root canal won't be as easy- but I'm good for now. The dentist gave me an antibiotic prescription and put in a temporary filling to prevent any more pain. The tooth with the new filling has been sensitive today- but my "snaggletooth" hasn't bothered me one bit. I think that today's mini dental excursion prepped me for the "big one" coming up.
Oh, and here is Zeb's little latest medical excursion. He had to go in and get his blood work done last week and I forgot to post the picture. I am such a wimp lately. As is obvious- I made Kent come with me and hold down the rugrat. Good thing I've got a husband who will make these ridiculous sacrifices (he is in medical school and just a little bit busy in the mornings) so that I can be as comfortable and calm as possible! Zeb actually enjoyed watching the blood be drawn- he just hated the nurses in his face and tying his arm up.
