OK. About 10 days ago my tooth started hurting when I ate. By last thursday it was hurting all the time. Yesterday i had a root canal. Now it hurts even more than it did. I have been taking Vicodin in the evenings for almost a week. Thursday I get a crown. On my tooth, even though I should get one on my head for dealing with this crap for a week and a half. I am pretty loopy right now and it is late and I am tired. I hope this is over soon. However, american Idol is funnier after a couple of vicodin.
