Drill me Baby

I went to the dentist this morning to have an old silver filling replaced with a white tooth coloured one. The dentist asked if I wanted anesthetic.

“Hmmm, is that a needle?” I ask.
“Yes” She replied.
“Then NO WAY” I’ll bear it, I thought. I’ve been through labour four times. I’ll cope.

She began the drilling and my hands began to clench and then the drill hit something that really hurt. And then again, and again. Ouchy. But it was soon over and no numb face, and no awful silver filling anymore. Next week I’m going back for the other one. I’m already clenching my teeth in anticipation of that pain sensation.

School holidays have been OK so far, until this afternoon when we got a phone call from a debt collection agency saying that we had an overdue bill from Telstra and if we didn’t pay today they were going to start legal action. After Jus spoke to 9 people about this we still don’t know what the bill is for, why they were sending the bill to an obsolete PO Box (we had it about 3 years ago for work) and why a telephone agency don’t even friggin call you when you have an overdue bill that they are taking you to court over. My mind is still boggling at the stupidity of it all.

Amy is being an absolute terror again in the night. This is exhausting. She is having an ultrsound on Thursday to rule out a hernia. Something is wrong – no-one cries like that. I hope the problem is resolved soon, and we get into the sleep centre fast.

Dinner time now. Have a good week all.

  2. OMG your amazing going to the dentist and NOT having the needle. Talk about brave. I wouldn’t be able to stand the drill sensation without being made numb first. I admire you 100%. Sending lots of positive vibes for the next one. Be brave! 🙂

    I do hope there is nothing wrong with Amy. Good idea getting her checked out. I feel for you not getting enough sleep and her being upset night after night. Wishing you lots of luck and best wishes you find out something that will help this situation.

    Re the debt collection agent for the old overdue Telstra bill. It sounds like they haven’t handled it very professionally.

    I would have thought Telstra would have sent you a reminder letter at least twice if you had unpaid bill for them before getting a debt collector involved.

    Sounds very odd to me. Make sure they give you the detials of exactly which phone these unpaid costs relate to and ask them why they sent the bill to an old address. Wishing you all the best sorting it out.

    Enjoy the school holidays and keep warm xxoo

  3. Ahhh Fran you are braver than me!!! My dentist gives you a numbing gel first so you dont feel the needle. I dont think I could do it without the needle!

    I hope you find out what is causing Amy to be unsettled so then you can set about fixing her sleep. It must be so exhausting for you!

    Take care
