Leslie vs. The Dentist (Round 2)

This is what happens when you complain about your dentist on your blog.


Just kidding!

All of my teeth are just where they should be.

I went back to the dentist today to finish my root canal.

I was not looking forward to it.  I didn't think I could tolerate any more pain.

But to my surprise, things went much better this time.

I didn't feel a thing!  I felt a slight pinch when Dr. Manny administered the anesthesia, but that was it.  No pain whatsoever.

We laughed.  We joked.  And at one point, I was the one reassuring my dentist that all was going smoothly and that he wasn't inflicting any pain at all.

For the first time in my life, going to the dentist turned out to be an enjoyable experience.  I could really get used to that.

Thank you all for your prayers and kind wishes!

  5. By the way, I like the new look. Of the blog. Not the Ozark smile -- even though it gave me a good laugh.
