I've had a monster tooth ache that has been getting progressively worse for the past two weeks. I finally made an appointment went to the dentist and it turns out I had an absessed tooth that required an immediate root canal this morning. Thankfully the miserable ache is gone but my head is swimming so much from Vicodin I can hardly see straight.

If you don't hear from me for a few more days, it's because I'm in bed sleeping off the pain pills and not because I'm ignoring you. I'm still submitting to agents, and have only had two rejections thus far. I'll keep submitting, even if I have to make up a day here and there from sleeping through it.

Brain not working. Must sleep. Sleep . . . Sleeeeeeeeep. *snore*

I totally sympathize. I had an abscessed tooth a couple months ago and had major complications with it. I was on massive antibiotics because the infection traveled into my face and down the side of my neck. They were real worried it would get to my heart, where it CAN be fatal. You stay in bed and take extra care of yourself. I was LOOPY on Vicodin. Asked my husband to take me home, when I was sitting in the living room. LOL At least I was entertaining.

My son had a tooth pulled yesterday for that very reason. My other son had his braces tightened, and my husband has had two major oral surgeries in the last month. The people in my house have sympathy for you and your owie tooth!

Have a good nap!
