Report- for those interested :)

The root canal is over, praise the Lord! It wasn't so bad, it just took forever. They had to give me about 10 shots to get me numb enough to where I couldn't feel it, I definitely felt it at first..not pleasant! The amount of metal instruments lingering in my mouth, down my throat and not to mention that awful taste that they produce didn't kill me, I came out alive! The procedure itself took around an hour and a half, then while my whole head was numb he figured it would be a good time to take care of some minor fillings. I agreed and he persisted to do so. I slept all afternoon, it was glorious! Oh and apparently I have an infection behind my wisdom teeth and it's eating away at my jawbone...lovely. Seems like it just keeps getting worse. My bottom lip is still numb today, not sure if thats normal or not but I don't like it, not one bit.

Not much to report really. I'm well, halfway through with all of these scary appointments and ready for it to be friday!

So glad it's over with! Seems odd though that your bottom lip is still numb?

Thank you Andrea and Leah! :)

Andrea- A speedy recovery is what I want! Now, just to get the worst part! :(

Leah- Yeah, I am a little worried that my bottom lip is still numb =/ If it's not feeling normal by tomorrow, I'm definitely going to call the dentist about it. I've had a root canal before as well as fillings and it never took this long for me to regain feeling in my lip. I guess we'll see.
