Urrgghhh dentists

I suddenly ended up having an unsceduled visit to mine this morning. I hate them at the best of times but pain drove me there lol. I have had something that has felt like an ulcer since Friday and has been improving and getting worse at regular intervals. Last night I woke up at 5:00am and it was so painful that I couldn't turn over in bed and had a terrible throbbing on top and bottom teeth so off I went. It turns out it is a gum boil due to my wisdom tooth. :-( Apparently because my bottom left wisdom tooth was removed a few years ago the top one has nothing to rest on which makes it prone to infection. It doesn't mean it will have to come out but my dentist has warned me before that as they are also crowded they may all have to be removed. So its a weeks worth of antibiotics, then a deep clean in 3 weeks at my usual dental check up and see how its progressing.
The meal last night was really nice with a gooey ice cream pud yummmmyy. I suddenly felt shy for a bit but soon relaxed and got alot more sorted for the fundraising day. Its only 2 1/2 weeks away now eeekk but coming together nicely with just some bits and pieces to sort out and tick off the list.
Today I am working on this and stitching on MVI and hope you all have a great day as the sun is out and its looking good. :-)

Aw Michelle. Kate's right - the dentist always puts you on the one antibiotic you can't drink with.

I'm sure you'll be able to get away with a couple of glasses Michelle! Think of it as a bit of anaesthectic ;)
