So I had a dentist appointment on Thursday morning. It was not fun. I got two fillings at 8am and then had my regular six-month cleaning. I was pretty nervous going in, but the fillings really weren't too bad. The shot was just a dull pain and then I was numb, so I didn't really feel, much...just heard a lot of drilling. The dentist said that the first cavity was really small and the second one was worse and went all the way to the nerve. He said we are going to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse, I'll have to get a root canal. WHAT?!?! I freaked out a little when he said that. That is, as much as you can freak out when you are lying down and someone is doing stuff in your mouth that is numb on one side.

He proceeded to finish with the exam and then explained a little further about the cavities. The bigger cavity really wasn't that big. My tooth nerve was just higher than what is normal, so that's why the cavity had reached the nerve. Typically, a cavity of this size wouldn't have been even close to reaching the nerve. That made me feel a little better, that the cavity wasn't as bad I originally thought. I still have the threat of a root canal b/c of the problem with the nerve. Yuck. My teeth are still just a little sensitive. I'm just hoping that the filling takes care of the cavity...I'd like to avoid as much dental work as possible. Plus, these stupid fillings cost me $165. :-(

I found this kitten this weekend. It's name is Chester for right now and John wants me to keep it for him until he gets out of AIT. Then he plans to take care of it. I'm almost sure that it's a girl, so the name might have to change.

The little kitten was so cute and meowing when I got home from work on Friday night at like 10pm. It was like 16 degrees outside, so I brought it into the house. Tally is pissed and there's been quite a bit of growling and hissing. I'm interested to see if they will adjust to each other though. For now, they are in separate rooms and together only when supervised. Isn't Chester cute?!?!!
