Hell Week Begins

Today marks the beginning of an entire week of doctor appointments.

It starts this morning with a visit to the dentist to have a tooth fixed. It's one of those iffy deals that hopefully will be just an old filling removed and a new one replaced, but could end up in a root canal - or even an extraction - because of a crack in the tooth. It depends on how deep the crack runs, I'm told, though the x-rays look good.

I am not looking forward to this at all.

The remainder of the week is filled with physical therapy visits, a chiropractic visit, and a regular doctor visit. I also had a mammogram scheduled in there but decided that was more than I could handle and postponed that until after Thanksgiving.

So wish me well as I begin this round of health care visits. Mostly I am worried about the dental visit today; I think if that goes well then everything else will be a breeze. While I generally do well with regular dental cleanings, the fact that the upcoming procedure is not clear-cut has me concerned since I am not sure what to expect.

Getting old kind of sucks.


  1. Wishing you well—and to get well, too.

  2. I have two weeks of doctor visits, too, and the dentist appointment is looming also. Hope it went well for you today!! Let us know!

  3. Good luck! Hope all goes smoothly. xox

  4. I thought it sounded like a post about open enrollment lol by the title

  5. Yeah, it does. And then, if we're LUCKY, we get even older! It saddens me to think this is the best shape I will be in for the rest of my life. We should meet for an adult beverage and commiserate. AFTER you quit drooling from the Novocain.
