Today is my birthday and it’s one of those “special” ones that end with a 5 or a 0. My husband is giving me the royal treatment all weekend especially after it started with the root canal Friday afternoon.
My dentist did an emergency procedure last Monday but referred me to an endodontist for the actual root canal. I will go back to the endodontist in two weeks to fill the canals and then one last appointment at my regular dentist for the restoration. Expensive!
My sister-in-law has the same birthday although different years. We’ll be having a celebratory lunch today and I really looking forward to it.
