So, if you hadnt read my Facebook or Twitter - or if you were one of the lucky ones who actually got a phone call of me crying & freaking out - then you already know.... I've had ANOTHER tooth break....
Yep - Sunday night, my tooth was aching, but I thought it was just sinus stuff since I was having another "dizzy day" with my ears. But Monday morning, it was still hurting & I pulled out a mirror & lo & behold, half of a tooth is missing in the back.... cue tears!
So I go to the dentist & yep, it needs a root canal & a crown. This made for my 6th root canal & my 5th crown.... and seriously ya'll - I am GOOD about taking care of my teeth, which makes it all even more frustrating! I can remember my daddy making me go in the bathroom when I was little to get me in the habit of even flossing....maybe its because I'm from Kentucky & the rule is, you can only have 4 teeth in your mouth... JOKING fellow Kentuckians.... we all know its 5 teeth!! hehe!!!
(Oh - & by the way - as I'm sitting in the chair waiting, my mom calls me on my BROKEN cell phone - another story - & tells me her tooth just broke!!! She had no idea I was in the dentist chair with my own... aahh - family teeth)
Then the work up of the cost comes in & this is where the freaking out part REALLY kicks in, because it's going to be another $1600.... GASP... but what can you do? Bye bye vacation... hello little tooth
So... here it is - the romance coming up... Ricky keeps calling to check on me - see if I'm ok - what the latest is. I told him the price of my tooth & he says....
"Dont worry - your tooth is my tooth"
There's love for you right there! My husband isnt the most romantic thing in the world, so I'll take a goofy comment like that any time I can get it. I have to admit, it made me laugh & took the freak out level down... romance at its finest!
