Dental Disturbance

Sunrise on a -16 degree morning

Sunrise on a -16 degree morning

The day after I ordered my new and very fancy eyeglasses, a crown on one of my teeth cracked, causing great pain.  It was an amazing thing to realize that I could use my flexible spending account for the tooth instead.  I went to the dentist, and as I suspected, the tooth was beyond repair.  It was extracted.  It was infected and horrible.

I am convalescing this weekend.

There is gratitude:

  • a comfortable sofa and a nice, warm, hand-knit blanket
  • olympics on tv and friends by e-mail and facebook
  • the fact that I could write a check for the dental work.  It is paid for.  I will be reimbursed for it, but I actually had the money for “an emergency.”
  • modern dentistry
  • a nice young dentist who hugged me after the gruesome ordeal yesterday, it did not go well.  God bless her.
  • my overall good health.

Thank you Lord for these things and too many others to count.

    It sounds like one of those awful experiences that is filled with good vibes all through out. Wow….money for an emergency. I am majorly impressed! :o)

    So sorry to hear about your tooth. Hopefully, you will be healed and well in no time. I have a broken tooth that will need a root canal and a crown. I will do it over spring break- using my flex spending account. For the first time, I have insurance and a flex spend account. It is surreal.

    Take care of yourself. Stay warm.

    Sorry about the tooth, but that is fantastic that you had the money for it and didn’t have to put it on credit.

    I am glad you were able to pay for everything. So glad that it went without a fuss.

    Sounds like a hard time. I am grateful for having wonderful teeth with only a few fillings.
