Root Canal

Here I am at 3 am, wide awake. My mom woke me up. She was hungry. She hadn’t slept well the night before. Thursday evening she fell asleep in her recliner. I woke her up to tell her to go lie down in bed. She agreed but then said she was hungry. I heated some leftovers and had to keep waking her up to keep chewing her food. I told her she didn’t have to finish it but she insisted. Then she went to bed. Now it’s 3 a.m. and she’s in the living room eating some fruit.

As for me, I had a root canal yesterday. My molar had been hurting me for almost a week. The pain was increasing in intensity. I knew what this meant. I’d been to the endodontist back in Feb but the x-ray didn’t show anything wrong back then. He smoothed the surface of my tooth, figuring that it was just hitting improperly and causing the pain in my tooth. It really did feel a lot better at the time. Jump forward to June and another x-ray still didn’t show anything wrong. He could tell by the sound of my tooth when he clicked it and by my chronic pain that he should do a root canal. He found a little bit of pus but said most of the root had been eaten up by bacteria. I’m on antibiotics.

I happened upon a showing of Chess on PBS and decided to record it. I wasn’t sure if it was the version with Josh but decided to record it. Yea! I got to watch it now instead of having to wait another month for the DVD from Warner Bros. Interesting story line about Chess and the cold war. The singing was great all the way around. I definitely liked it.

Time for bed. Oh wait, that was hours ago. Time for bed again. :)

God bless us, everyone!
