Llife Bites

It's minor in the grand scheme of things, but for those of you who are praying types, I'd appreciate your prayers. Kate and I had to cancel a trip out of town this weekend to see our friends Phil and Lauren because I spent most of Friday night awake, moaning, and holding my jaw, which ached like crazy.

Then I spent five hours at an emergency dental care facility today, and emerged with a root canal. Right now the whole left side of my face feels like it's been crushed by a sledgehammer, which is about how it felt before the root canal. It will get better, I'm told. But I'm bummed because we missed out on seeing friends, and I'm bummed that my face hurts. So prayers are appreciated.

Oh! Been there done that! Hope you liked the dentist (I have a GREAT endodontist if you're ever in need -- the fact that I "have" an endodonist gives you a pretty good indicator that I've had one to many root canals.) Hope that they gave you good meds too. Sorry your weekend got screwed up. I'll pray you feel better soon.
