As some of you may know, I am having my wisdom teeth extracted tomorrow. One of my teeth is literally growing into the molar in front of it at about a 30 degree angle. (This picture is not actually my x-ray but mine looks VERY similar.)
I'm not a huge fan of dental procedures. In fact, there are lots of other things I would prefer to do. Like scrub the bleachers of a football stadium with a toothbrush. Or try to find the receipt for that lampshade I bought 8 years ago.
However, regardless of how I feel, I am to give thanks to the Lord for His many blessings. So on that note....
I am thankful that there are dentists and oral surgeons to perform dental procedures when they become necessary. I am thankful that we have easy access to them here in the U.S. I am thankful that we have dental insurance so we don't have to pay the full cost. Most of all, I am thankful that our insurance covers sedation!
If you think of me tomorrow, I wouldn't mind you sending up a prayer for me. I'm a bit apprehensive about the whole teeth-yanking scenario and I'm praying for a painless (literally) and quick procedure that I don't remember. :)
....Also, if you don't hear from me for a day or two, I'm probably knocked out from the pain meds....
