I hate to do this… but I am desperate.
I recently told you about this tooth thing… turns out it was so bad that my dentist felt we should remove it. I was fully on board with that and this past Monday they did.
Last night I was in extreme pain again.
When a tooth is removed, a blood clot naturally forms in the wound. If that blood clots falls out, it is called dry socket. I looked at the wound and sure enough, there is no blood clot there.
I have been researching it this morning and people seem to equate the pain of dry socket as worse then the actual tooth ache.
I cant even tell anymore. I just know that my whole side of my face hurts… my ear hurts, my head hurts, and my mouth hurts.
I am just so mentally defeated by this consistent pain… I could really, really use a prayer.
Please pray for quick healing and pain relief. I honestly feel terrible even asking for prayers because there are so many other more important things we could all be praying for… but I just dont know what to do anymore.
Thank you so much for considering it!
I have been using clove oil and acetaminophen (once this morning) and doing a regular rinse of salt water. It has helped. But mostly… I have FELT the prayer! THANK YOU so much for taking a moment of your life (because I know you are busy!!) to offer up a prayer. I cannot tell you what it has meant to me today!! Thank you SO much… please, please let me know when I can return the favor!
