Today is Thanksgiving in Canada and I enjoyed it with my family.
My brother and his family, also my sister and her family came for supper tonight.
I love when I get to spend time with them…just wish my other siblings lived closer.
My morning started with an early with a trip to emergency. Not how I planned to spend my day.
Last year I thought I had an abscessed tooth…which turned out to be my sinuses. Which is odd as I have never had sinus troubles and I didn't think I had a cold…actually I thought my dentist didn't know what she was talking about, lol.
That was until I took some sinus pills and it cleared up.
Well, about 3+ months ago it happened again, but not that painful.
So chalked it up to the same thing…plus I clench my jaw when I sleep, so thought that was also the problem.
Until about 3 weeks ago.
It was even more sore, so I started to take sinus pills again (can you tell I hate taking pills)
Well a couple of days ago, I developed a hard lump on the roof of my mouth.
I went to the only walk in that was open on Sunday's (yesterday) only to find out that the building was empty, lol.
With today being a holiday, there was no where else to go but emergency.
I was a bit worried as I know that many people have complained about the wait times in emergency…I had 4 hours until the turkey had to be put in the oven.
So I brought some crafty magazines and a book to read….I was prepared.
Luckily for me, it was only an hour visit.
The nice doctor that saw me, told me that it is actually a tooth infection and that he had to cut open the lump.
So that is what he did.
I hate to go to emergency if it isn't an emergency, and I honestly didn't think mine was an emergency as I wasn't in immense pain.
But my mind started to go to that dark place, where I start thinking I have some incurable illness, so I thought I better get it checked out, if nothing else but my peace of mind, lol.
Now wasn't that a fun story ;)
No worries though, I still got to enjoy some of my turkey dinner ;)
I hope all you Canadian friends enjoyed your Thanksgiving with those you love.
