Nothing To Do With Writing or Editing

But it's all I can think about right now, so you're stuck with it. Tomorrow I go in for a dental proceedure called crown lengthening, which is a misnomer, I think, because what they'll do is surgically trim my gums so that there is more tooth exposed to attach a crown to. I had an old filling break and when I went in to my regular dentist, she told me there was decay beneath the filling and I would have to have a root canal. Not fun, but I've had root canals before and they're not as bad as some folks make them out to be. (Maybe I'm just amazingly tough...)

But once the root canal was done, she then told me I needed this crown lengthening procedure, which turns out to involve three to four hours worth of open-mouth surgery. It was originally scheduled for about two weeks ago, but the day I was supposed to go in I woke up incredibly sick to my stomach and had to reschedule. That rescheduled appointment is tomorrow morning and my stomach is doing unpleasant things - again. Is it protesting? Trying to give me an excuse not to go again? Maybe I'm not so tough after all.

Pray for me...

I've never had a root canal, but I have had gum grafts before and they're a whole lot of no fun, so I feel for you. Good luck.
