Kenzie has been wiggling her first loose tooth for weeks now. Her dad helped liberate it yesterday so Kenzie brought it down to show me. It's a pretty important milestone to lose your first tooth - as exciting as it was for her parents when that little tooth first poked its way to the surface five years ago.
My teeth experience yesterday wasn't as exciting as Kenzie's. I've had a throbbing toothache for a couple of days and ended up going to the dentist. The affected molar is hidden under a crown and after xrays were taken it was determined that I need a root canal. Because of the crown, I'm being referred to a specialist, but since I'm going to be in Oliver, BC from Aug 5 to 15, the earliest I could get in is Aug 27! In the meantime, I'll be living on extra strength Motrin and extra strength Tylenol...not fun. Plus, my jaw is swollen - I'll look beautiful for Emily's wedding! I think the whole teeth situation should have been better thought out back when mankind was first created!
