Just a quick head’s up, folks! I’m going to be attempting to get dental surgery this afternoon. For those unaware, I’ve been dealing with a very painful, increasingly worse, dental infection. I was *supposed* to go into the hospital tomorrow to have it dealt with, but due to a paperwork SNAFU, wasn’t able to get things done in time, and the next appt the dentist has? in January.
No way can I manage for that long, without some potentially serious repercussions.
So, I get to try to get this taken care of with just a sedative and freezing.
This freaks me out completely, because a) before RSD, I NEVER froze properly. EVER. b) It’s of course a tooth on my right side that’s the problem…and my right arm that is impacted by RSD. Frankly, this is going to be one huge endurance test, for both me and the dentist. Me, it’s going to be about how much pain I can withstand, before completely losing it and making him stop, and for him, how much reaction he can tolerate before calling it quits. Considering I yelp and cry with just the freezing needle, it’s not going to be pleasant for either of us, not by a long stretch.
It’s going to be bad. No way around that.
I’m just praying I can get through it.
So, I’m not likely to be posting for the next day or two. I’ll try to give a quick message on the Facebook page, so folks will know how it all went. If you’re not following the Facebook page, you can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/notastepfordlifeblog
Prayers, well wishes, anything positive is more than welcome.
