This afternoon I am having a crown removed, tooth pulled, and two dental implants. I am really dreading the thought of those screws in my bone, but I am hoping I will be okay. If you have had dental implants, let me know how you are doing with them.

On February 29th, I went to my dentist for an abscess. The tooth that abscessed had a root canal done on it when I was pregnant with my son in 1972, and it had cracked about mid-way the root and caused the infection. I took two rounds of antibiotics, and I was sent to the periodontist who does implants during that time.

I scheduled the implants for today during our Spring Break at school because I didn't want to mess up my perfect attendance for this year.

However, on St. Patrick's Day, something happened to my right knee and leg, so I have been on crutches. I did miss 1 1/2 days, and I made it through a week at school on crutches. I hate these crutches. I am seeing the orthopedic doctor again on Friday.

Please keep me in your prayers.
