    yes, I have to have a root canal this afternoon. Haven't had one before, and am not looking forward to it. I've had a raging toothache since saturday night. I did take some Ultram to sleep. I had some free samples my rheumy gave me that I didn't use.
    Waiting for the flare on this one.

    Have one again unless it's done by an endodontist. It helps a lot to be on antibiotics for about a week prior to the procedure too.

    Love, Mikie

    The proceedure went quickly, and so far, I feel pretty good. Of course I'm still numb from the novacaine. I did go to an endodontis. It's probably a good thing that I've been recently on Doxy for two or three weeks for a sinus infection. I have to go back on that. Will see if I herx.
    How are you feeling since your surgery?
