~ Fall in the Kitchen ~

Hi Friends,

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’m sure lots of you are busy readying for Trick or Treat. :) Always fun!

My root canal is “done”. I say”done” because it’s not. He didn’t cap it. Said my tooth wasn’t totally dead yet and he would cap it when it needed it. I don’t understand that. Every ounce of drilling is to much so why prolong it or make extra appointments. I just don’t understand. I’m kind of upset.

I’m also not happy with the way the tooth looks. There is a large lumpy burr on it that I’m going to have to go back in and have drilled off. Again, more drilling. More pain. I don’t understand why this wasn’t caught while I was still in the chair.  It’s frustrating.

I’ve been seeing this dentist for a very long time but I think I’ve lost faith in his ability after this. :( This really bums me out. Everyone I talk to says my root canal has been handled badly. That my tooth should have been capped now and that the appearance of my tooth should have been perfect. I don’t know.

Lets talk about happier things… like fall in the kitchen! Ready? Lets go. Down the hallway…

My Gosh Carmen...first.. may I reccommend you find a new dentist? I have never heard of leaving a "dead" tooth in someone's mouth and that's exactly what it is...a dead tooth...you cold have infection or damage to the bone...you poor thing...find another dentist!!

Secondly....I so enjoy looking at your beautiful home! All of your collections are just gorgeous and you have them put together so nice...how do you manage to keep it all so clean and dust free? They look just perfect!! THanks for posting all the pictures. Are you going to the Gathered Treasures show in Mansfield on the 12th?

It looks great. I am done with the fall decorating inside but still have a few things to do outsiide@
My root canal was done in 2 trips...and once i had the first appointment there was no more pain since the nerve was taken out! You might want to try a specialist who only does root canals! Hope you feel better. Dianntha

Holy smokes Girlfriend....There's a lot packed in this post....hardly know where to begin...but I'll do those that struck me the most: (1) Awesome everything and everywhere! (2) You must have a HUGE kitchen....Yikes!! (3) How the heck do the kitties get up to that cabinet and bed up there? and (4) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your scales!!!! I have such a soft spot for them, but my stinking kitchen/dining room is so small!!! (And somehow, they don't cut it in the bedroom....) And lastly, but not leastly....yeah, you need a new dentist. Bummer - BIG time!!! Wishing you a great Sunday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Maybe your dentist has taken on too many patients and cannot spend quality time with them anymore. My ex dentist did that and we switched.

Your kitchen looks spectacular! I hope you don't mind I take a few decorating ideas from you :-)

Hugs~Carol

Carmen,
sorry about the tooth saga, we have a wonderful dentist that we have been going to for a really long time. He is also a personal friend. A dead tooth should be pulled, not left. Give him a call, at least for a second opinion. His name is Tom Hutson and he is in Worthington. His receptionist is Sandy. Tell him The Dickinson's sent you!!
Love the Fall decorations.
Warm Wishes,
Kim

Oh Carmen that was so much fun to take your awsome tour!
Root canals in my opinion should be done by specialists i.e. Endodontists.
Happy Halloween!
