Older and Wiser?

Tuesday Morning, I woke up with a slight tooth ache.. about a 2/10 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst...

Well by the end of the day Tuesday.. I couldn't open my mouth all the way to eat an apple...

So That evening I texted one of my dentists office staff... and asked her if I could come in..
She called the doctor and he said he couldn't see me that evening because his son was getting married and they were doing some wedding stuffs...
which I totally understood...
so I set up for 1pm the next day...
I go to sleep Tuesday night and I dreamed about pulling that tooth out myself.. and I kept waking up due to pain.. It got bad in a hurry..
Wednesday Morning I woke up with the worst tooth ache ever.... I couldn't open my mouth at all! It was horrible.. My cheek was all swollen and I didn't eat breakfast.. and let me tell you what.. big girl over here likes to eat her breakfast.... I instead sucked on orange slices....
Well I went to work.. worked my shift.. then headed to the dentist.. with my father...
They took a x-ray of my tooth.. and then when the Doctor walked in.. he said.. "it needs to go".. I quickly told him that if he didn't take it out, I was going to take it out..
So he had to shoot me up with Novocain just so I could open my mouth enough for him to get to this joker..
he said that my tooth was growing towards my mandible and that's why I couldn't open my mouth...
which I totally could see on x-ray...
he pulled that joker out.. and I was so relieved...  they packed me up and sent me on my way... and once I got to the check out counter.... I about passed out.. I started seeing black spots and feeling nauseous.. so I had to sit down.. then I think I might have looked a little pale, because they made me go lay down and put cold compresses on my face...  about 30 minutes later.. I was all set.. I had my father drive me home and I went straight to sleep...
I woke up Thursday feeling pretty darn good... my face is still a little puffy.. but, I feel much better...
I didn't get any pain pills.. and I didn't need any antibiotics.. so I was happy about that :)
