I have to go back to the dentist today, so of course I'm parked in front of the computer. I am nothing if not consistent. Turns out I don't need a root canal. The dentist was as surprised as I was, as the tooth in question has a deep filling. They use digital xrays now, and they can expand them as big as the entire computer screen, so they don't miss a thing. And there is no sign of infection in the root of that tooth. The discomfort is just from nerve trauma. I do, however, have a bitty little cavity. I'm having that filled today.
Last night, half of my coworkers were either out sick with the flu or on vacation. I had to work a couple hours of unexpected over time, and of course I had to get up early for today's dental appointment. I have no idea if we will have any sick calls for tonight. I have my fingers crossed, but I'm expecting more of the same tonight. Cross your fingers for me, that I can get through the shift and home again in one piece, and without picking up the flu bug ~
