Yesterday I woke up and my face was swollen. I looked like I had swallowed a baseball. I called in sick and my boss insisted that I go to her dentist. She could not help me. I went back to the dentist who wanted to pull teeth, but he could not help me.
He scheduled me for oral surgery today at 10:30am. The swelling apparently needs to be drained as well as having the tooth pulled. They were afraid that the swelling would close off my airways. They thought I was going to die last night.
I'm very pleased to announce that God had other plans! My friend Eddie called and prayed for me and as he prayed the swelling reduced by about half. I slept very well despite the pain and although EXTREMELY frightened about the surgery, will be so happy to have this over with.
If you think of it, please pray that they will knock me out for the surgery and that I'll have enough money to pay for it.
