Nothing Like A Little Pain After A New Crown

UGH, so my whole routine has been off a bit with dental work  and caring for my senior cat, Twinkie, for a week now.  Though I have to say, even though I have gotten in some walking, I have been pretty good with my diet this past week, maybe 5-6 lb gain and it’s most likely bloat. Well at least that is what I am telling myself to make me feel better not the fact of eating too much peanut butter.

Anyways, let me tell you a little bit about my crown.  Three weeks ago I got a root canal due to a cavity that wasn’t seen on my previous cleaning / exam. A crown was then placed upon this tooth  and I am experiencing discomfort with it to the point of where I just want to cry. Nothing like a dull ache in your mouth that travels to your ear, but I won’t take IBU around the clock, no way. I can deal with pain quite well, after all I did pop out a child. And on that note, lets just say OUCH, no one ever told me how painful that was going to be. I did  not have an easy labor. I thought once I got a epidural it was going to be smooth sailing. NOT, it wore off, that was something no one ever explained. You have a small window to get a epidural and if you don’t pop out the baby when that kicks in, you’re screwed. 

Okay back to me and my tooth. I have a dental appointment today with a specialist and I am hoping I will get a positive game plan.  I am so good with caring for my teeth, it has been over 10 years since I needed any kind of dental work. I love going to the dentist for a cleaning but anything else blows. And I know so many of you could tell me a story that has to do with dental pain, :(

On a positive note, I decided to make myself feel better by baking up a batch granola, yum! Comfort food…healthy and low fat.

Thank you for all the nice, loving emails to do with my cat Twinkie.

Here is the Twinkie update: after getting fluids and a shot to stimulate hunger yesterday at the vet, she is up and on the move. Meowing, purring, eating and moving as fast as a 16 year old can. Vet says she is healthy, nothing found. I  am hoping that it was just a “cat change of life, haha” or something she just went through due to age.  I want to find her dead one day, not have to put her to sleep one day.
