Winter has arrived and my two root canals...............Yay!

So, I guess we are now getting our winter weather! We got hammered last night with 6 more inches of snow on top of what we already had. We lucked out and had a very mild winter.....until the middle of January, but we can't complain.

I do love living in an area that has the four seasons, I love cozying up to our fireplace in the cold snowy months, but sometimes we just need to get away from it for just a bit. My husband and I managed to escape right after the huge snow storm that swept the lower states below us and the states to the East, we lucked out here in Ohio because it just missed us. Never the less we got out of here and headed to Key West, where we spent 8 wonderful days. Which is one of the reasons why I haven't been posting on my blog. When we got home, we were met with what we escaped from in the first place, more dreary, cloudy, rainy/snow mixed weather and it hasn't stopped snowing since.

It was Monday, the 8th, when we got back home, and on Thursday I started having issues with my teeth on the right top and bottom. I have been having problems with sensitivity for quite some time and my dentist appt. in January showed nothing. If you've ever had a toothache, headache, earache, you know there isn't anything worse than head pain. I've always thought I had a high pain tolerance, but for the past 5 days, it has been debilitating, which is the second reason why I haven't been posting. Crazy as it sounds I didn't have any issues while we were away, I think maybe we just need to move south!

Yesterday I went to my primary doctor, hoping she could find the problem, she couldn't, but she did suggest I go to an Endodontist...............a doctor that specializes in root canals.

So today I had my appointment with the specialist and thank God he found  the problem that's been causing my pain. I have an infected tooth and a dead one........I need two root canals and are scheduled for next Tuesday and I can't wait, I just want this pain to end. Until then he gave me a prescription for an antibiotic to get rid of the infection, and a pain med to control the pain.

I feel pretty good this afternoon, the pain is tolerable, but Tuesday won't come quick enough for me.

The last post I wrote was about my entertainment center that we are having built for us, I haven't heard from Dog Eared Primitives yet and I am getting so anxious. Not that I can do anything with it anyway until I'm 100%, I'm just anxious to see it!

I'm hoping to get a call telling me that we can come pick it up this weekend, and that I'll feel good enough to go get it. I'm going a little stir crazy just hanging out and not being productive. I hate being a slug!


  1. Ok, so Key West..yay!! Root canals and pain...boo!! I hope that the meds keep you comfortable until you can get it all fixed up and then I say yes, a move south sounds like perfect, toothache or not!

    1. Thanks Kim! Yes, I told the hubby that in order for me to stay healthy, we need to move somewhere where there is sun & ocean:D

  2. Wow Rhonda, two, yikes! I hope you feel good. Years ago, I had 5 done in one day. Take care.

    1. Five root canals?! Ughh! Well I'm anxious to get this over with, it was not a fun week for me! I hate laying around....makes me crazy (crazier:)
