Tomorrow is the big day. It's all I've been able to think about since I woke up this morning. My tooth hasn't hurt all day today and I told Kent it must be a sign that I don't need to go in anymore. He insists that I still go.
I was going to put up a poll entitled "keep it for a ridiculously large sum of money or just yank the dang thing (who needs their back molar anyway?)" because I convinced myself that I am going to need a root canal and our insurance doesn't cover them. Apparently root canals are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. I stressed myself out so bad that I actually called my insurance company to figure out why they'd pull my tooth but not fix it. Turns out they recently changed their dental plan for adults and now DO cover root canals on molars (after authorization once the dentist confirms the validity- because I'm sure there are so many dentists out there doing root canals when not necessary?!?!) . I really almost cried it made me so happy. Then- that same day (Friday) I went to the mailbox to find a letter from WTOL 11. I opened it up to find a gift certificate to a local steakhouse for FIFTY BUCKS! I won an online drawing that I entered last week! I am so excited. I enter these contests ALL of the time and I actually won one!!! It almost makes up for the fact that I have to go to the dentist tomorrow. Oh, dear. I hope I make it. Wish me luck. Maybe I'll try to get some pictures to post.
