So good to hear that things are getting dealt with and that your teeth aren't as bad as feared. I'm glad that you will be put under for the treatment and the cost will eventually be covered. Thank you for the update. Take care and God bless!

Thanks. We just have to do some creative budgeting (and we might even have our tax refund by then, if we get busy and file as early as we did last year). The money is set aside in our flex plan, just can't get it until it's a reimbursement. It used to be on a debit card.

AND thank God that your teeth aren't as bad as you thought. The peroxide will help with your gums too! Use it when u get in the shower and rinse well when u r done.

God Bless you.

P.S., if mes had the resouces, I would so help u with the pmts! Like 4 real! :)

Glad it wasn't as bad as you thought! I too dislike going to the dentist and put off going far too often! And these dentists drive me nuts that talk to you, or ask you questions while they have their hands or equipment in your mouth and you are unable to answer! I can't get through a dental visit without the gas, I am always so stressed. LOL I'll be praying things go well for you!

I know the pain of a bad tooth and am praying that the Lord will lead you to the right dentist, who is sensitive to your fears. 'Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."

Blessings,
Sheldon

Thanks, all. There hasn't been a lot of pain, thankfully. I do have an appointment set up, just have to come up with some of the money up front. That's going to be the tricky part. We may have to reschedule after we get our taxes done and our refund.

Re: Prayers for me - dental, etc. - Update - appt. Tuesday

Postby RedBaron » Sun Mar 09, 2014 11:16 pm

Tuesday (3/11) I finally get my dental work done (broken molar removed, deep cleaning, gum treatment, and a couple small cavities - my teeth weren't nearly as bad as I thought - so that's a praise lol). We used part of our tax refund to pay for the up front for getting put under to do the work. I have to take a pill to help me sleep the night before, another pill and drink some stuff an hour before my appointment. They said it would "feel like you've had a couple cocktails." I have never been drunk in my life... lol. Frank's taking the day off, as I obviously won't be able to drive lol. Then they give me an IV after I get there to put me in "twilight sleep" to do the work.

I'm not totally nervous yet, but, hopefully the stuff they are having me take before hand will do the trick and keep me from totally panicking. The worst part right now is they moved my appointment to 10:20 and I'm not going to be able to eat or drink anything, other than a sip of water to take the one pill in the am.

Lord Jesus a simple but powerful prayer for Shari. That she be granted that peace that surpasses all understanding. To find the right surgical dentist who will finish this for once and for all. :bow

Praying for you too Shari,

I'm a huge dental sissy (after 5 years of dental restructuring in my teens) and have to be gassed to even have my teeth cleaned. Not much creates the same type of anxiety in me so I can empathize with you and if it helps at all, what I do is pray for folks (especially the dentist and his family) during any procedure to keep my mind other focused. It seems to give me some peace.

Praying all day for you!

Love,
Bea

Shari, I'm praying that you will be blessed with peace that passes understanding and that you will have a strong sense of God's presence through it all. God bless!

It went well, at least that's what they told me lol. I got a Wendy's Frosty for lunch. Then slept, got up to go to the bathroom at some point, and back to sleep. Now having a bit of soup and sweet tea and then probably back to sleep. Not too much pain.
