Tooth Tuesday!

Worsted weight Malabrigo in Tiger Lily and Cadmium!

Karoake soy silk/wool.
These were in the mailbox when I got home. What a great treat to get...perfect timing!
Made me smile but with my mouth numb only part of it came up!:) Bet you thought I was going to get a tooth photo huh? Did think of it but decided not to...maybe next time!:)

For the next three weeks the blog posts on Tuesdays will be Tooth Tuesdays. Had an endodontic appt. today...another in two weeks...and Jimmy has a dentist appt. next Tuesday...soooo the next three Tuesdays are teeth days!


Had the endodontic appt. today and yup had to have another root canal. I'm extra special because my roots curve at the ends and I have more roots than the normal person...lucky me. I even got to have "special" shots...one in the side of my face that's supposed to feel like a bruise but like I told the doctor I will bruise anyways...then the other shot got to go right through the middle of the tooth. They have to numb me like a horse because redheads don't take anesthesia well...do we hear another lucky me! Came home took some more advil, grabbed an ice pack, turned on my ocean sound machine and knocked out for a couple of hours. I go back in two weeks for the second part of the root canal. He does it in two sessions so he makes sure to get out any infection etc. that might creep up. Fuji gave me lots of good kisses to make it better. Gonna go have some tea and crochet a bit.

Oh gosh! Yeah my redhead doesn't react well to anesthesia, either. I went to the dentist today, but just for a check up. At least u got all that pretty yarn. Hope you feel better soon!

All my sympathy and good thoughts your way. I completely feel for you.
At least you got yarn though, that's has to ease the pain a little. Keep petting your yarn and Fuji they will make you feel better.

I heard that redheads bleed more too. Weird, right? I went to get my flu shot and the nurse was like, you'll need a bandaid because you're so fair. Hmm....
