because I was cracking up when we were leaving the store. Do you see that? It is a limo pulling in to get gas at Get Go. Anyway, my mom drove me to CEVEC and went in with me. She told my teacher that she knows what has been going on. My teeth have been killing me. Remember my post a few days ago? I told my mom that when I walk into the freezer at Myers to get my supplies it makes my teeth hurt even more. My teacher did not know I had to go into the cooler once I got to the job site. So we decided I would not go there for a few weeks until my wisdom teeth are removed. Then we drove to the oral surgeons office.
Wow...nice building. I have my x-rays in hand just like my dentist told me to.
After my mom filled out all the paperwork, they called me back into an examine room. It's not like the other dentist I go to. There was a lot more equipment in there.
All of a sudden some music came on that I used to dance to in ballet class. I thought that was pretty cool. It made me smile. And then the doctor came in. He asked me which tooth hurt. So I pointed to it. Then he put my x-ray on the light board. "Sure enough Sarah," he said. "It looks like this tooth is pushing the nerve of the other tooth." Then he looked at my mom and they started talking about all my health issues. He said he could not take my teeth out. "No way can I do this out patient," he said.
I must go to the hospital. For a few days. "WHAT!!!!" I need to be where they know me, have an anesthesiologist to put me to sleep, nurses to handle the IVs, and the crash cart just in case. He said he is very worried about my airway. Normally they would intubate a patient in this situation. But because of the scar tissue from the trach, and my history of subglotic stenosis, it is not such a good idea for me. Plus he is worried about how I will take the pain medicine afterwards.
