we went to the endodontist to have him finish the root canal on jilly’s tooth today that he started 2 weeks ago.
he wouldn’t finish it.
she had a sedative (7.5 mg of diazepam to be exact) to calm her down, but he didn’t think she was calm enough. they took her back without me & started the novocaine, but only got so far as the first injection when he called it off. he thought she was going to have an anxiety attack.
looking back, i feel like i should have advocted to keep going, to let me go in with her, to do something to get it done today, but i didn’t want to be pushy. i didn’t want to seem like i didn’t care about her because i do, i do, i do.
now we have to go to yet another doctor for a pre-evaluation and then have an IV-sedated root canal.
and we get to pay for 2 root canals.
ugh. so the count is:
root canals: 0
please let the next time be our last.
*posts will be few & far between since we are mid-move & we won’t have internet access until next week.
