de pain, de pain continues

Boy, do I hate to have dental work done. Apparently I have extra nerves in my jaw so I require three, four and sometimes five times the amount of anesthesia to get me numb. Of course that means that afterward, I have one sore jaw from all the needle sticks. And even though I have a pretty high threshold of pain, I think mouth pain is different and hurts more than any other pain because it is, for me at least, a throbbing pain that just seems to hang on.

Any way, the gum is healing, the stitches have fallen out and that is good. Now if the throbbing jaw would go away.....

Ouch!!!!
Hope you are feeling all better soon. I am a dental wimp myself.

Are you going to the track team banquet on Tuesday?

I'm not sure. I haven't heard much about it. I think J has to work anyway. If I am going, I will let you know.
