Where's the Tooth Fairy???

Apparently, she skipped right by my house and sent the tooth trolls to create some mischief in my mouth! I have been M.I.A. due, in part, to 5 days of complete agony caused by a "bothersome" tooth. Bothersome, my Aunt Fanny! That was the dentist's sugar coated term for my evil tormentor. I would far rather birth a rabid elephant...sans epidural...than go through the pain I was in. The dentist finally got it "under control" (add to the 4-letter word list: R-O-O-T canal) and I'm beginning to feel human again. I'm running a fever and my jaw feels like I went a few rounds with Mike Tyson, but they're nothing in comparison to how I felt 2 days ago. A hefty course of antibiotics with a side of Tylenol with codeine should take care of the residual discomfort. I'll be back when I'm feeling more perky!


  1. oh Kimberly, sweet girl I know you are/have been in such agony, but your descriptives are hysterical!!
    I know all too well, that insidious pain in the mouth/jaw, etc...It is sheer torture!
    Take care of yourself and take your meds as directed..
    I have missed you:(


  2. I am sorry but i am so howling at this post i am about to wet my pants! i hope you feel better :-)

  3. now do they have a picture of a back in a vice grip????

    (actually, i'm not even sure what a vice grip is, but it sounded good)

  4. You poor thing! I have to have a root canal next month and I am getting them to put me under although I have heard people say it's like getting a tooth filled, right. I will take being knocked out!
