I went to the dentist yesterday, I knew that I had to have a tooth removed. I was in pain all weekend, but it was just bareable. I got an appointment for 2 in the afternoon. It was my wisdom tooth, 80 mins later my tooth was out, but that was after some brutal pushing and pulling, and the dentist saying half way “Ok, now we are doing surgery”, I prayed all the time, asking God to be with the dentist, and of course with me. When the tooth finally came out, he looked worried. He held up my tooth, and said that he would keep it in a bag, for a while, huh? Then he said to me that he may have cut a nerve, or maybe just bruised it. He repeatedly told me that I may be numb for three days, or if he had snipped it, I could be numb for 3-12 months! I wasn’t angry, I knew it was difficult to get out, he was nervous. I went home (eventually), and was still numb, and I thought, why me? Am I going to dribble for a year? Then I thought “Why not me?” Am I so special that these things shouldn’t happen to me? No. So I hoped that God would sustain me instead. Saying that, as 6.30pm I got my feeling back, I am amazed. I have had two phone calls from my dentist, one at about 6.35pm, and then another in the morning. I guess he is happy now too.

My mum came over today, which was nice, I felt loved. It is always unsettling when you are sick as a mum, because noone looks after you, in fact people are actually happy to have a day off school. Children don’t understand. I remember my mum having operations when I was a teenager, and I don’t think I helped her at all, how selfish was I? I wish I had helped her. 

I now know that one Pandeine Forte is plenty, two makes it a bit scary..

Encouragment, shouldn’t be a rare thing right? Think about it. Even if you think someone doesn’t deserve it, a nice comment (that is truthful), doesn’t cost anything. Remember to have the law of kindness on your lips, it makes the world a lot nicer to live in don’t you think? So thanks mum for visiting me, it was a visit that I needed. Love you.

    This was the worse story I have heard in ages. You poor thing. I am not looking forward to having this done to me one day. Hope you’re feeling better.
