I think I'm done prepping for the craft show.
No more googly eyes!! I'm getting tired of them.
I know my inventory is not huge, but that's okay.
Yesterday before my dentist appt, I cut out and ironed down the parts for 3 sets of owl pot holders.
then today I finished them off.
Some of you may know that I love to listen to audio books when I sew and quilt, and I brought this set with me on the almost 1 hr drive to and from the endodontist yesterday.
I saw this as a new audio book at the library last week and got it, it's really fun!
"Miss Scarlet's school of patternless sewing"
and sewer should read/ hear this.
I wanted to let you know too what the endodontist told me yesterday...
well they DID take 2 x rays ( with double protection over my belly)
and Yes it's an abscess on an old tooth I had a root canal done on at least 10 yrs ago in FL, either it was not done properly OR the crown was not done right and germs got in or it got a crack over time and germs got in. either way it needs a root canal OR pulled out, I did see the comparison to the newer root canal and the old, the older also has a screw in my tooth, so my gut is telling me to get it pulled and either get an implant or a bridge, I'm leaning toward an implant, ANYWAYS, I'm not in pain and have had this going on for a while and it's just in my teeth, he said no risk that the infection would go to the baby, so it can all wait until after I deliver!! so that's good news! even though I'm seing $ signs.
This is the tooth that has been all messed up since day one. I gotta tell you this horror story!
so 10 yrs ago I got my first root canal ( I believe I had a big filling and couldn't be redone anymore)
so I got it done, then in the middle of it my insurance changed, so I had to go to another dentist to get the crown done (makes me think it was a regular dentist who did the root canal!) anyways I got this young female dentist to drill down my tooth and get fitted for a crown, after she was done drilling, she looked at my chart again and said OH OH!! (not what you want to hear in the dentist chair) she had drilled down the WRONG tooth, so I actually have another crown right next to this one on a perfectly good tooth!
the endodontist yesterday said there's a little dark spot near the edge of the "good" crown and to have my dentist look at that crown too, I don't trust that crown one bit!! well it lasted 10 yrs I guess that's good, but I now have 3 crowns in a row, what a mess! and I'm only 34 yrs old... SIGH.
and still after all this I'm not afraid to go to the dentist! never was. of course I don't LOVE it, but I don't mind it.
