The Root Canal

I had the root canal today. It took about an hour. The thing that hurt the most was getting poked in the tongue with the Novocaine needle. Luckily it was a quiet day at work as I spent most of it numb and drooling a little. I don't want to chew, but otherwise there isn't a lot of discomfort. Dinner was a dish of nice soft pasta.
We'll see how it feels tomorrow. But I don't expect much trouble. I just don't have the mental energy to be more entertaining right now.

So glad it was bearable!!! I am a terrible coward where dentists are concerned. Not as bad as Bear, though.

I agree, the worst of a root canal is getting the novacaine -- even if the needle is aimed correctly. I hope the endodontist's aim with the drill was better! :)

Ow! That doesn't sound fun. Soft food is always good after major dental events; when I had all four of my wisdom tooth out (which meant I was drooling out of all sides of my mouth) dad got to stretch his ingenuity dreaming up soft dishes...but I still snuck the occasional Dorito in (it hurt, but boy did they taste good. *grin*)
