Oh For the Lack of Wisdom

Since Thursday I have been having excruciating pain in my lower right wisdom tooth. It's been recurring Since October on and off, but this time around has been the worst. It has been decided that this tooth must come OUT. Oh the pain! I can't stand the thought of it! I am scheduled for it's removal on April 28 at 2:30. Yes. I know and remember the exact date and time. I am not looking forward to it. And yet, maybe it will quit bothering me all the time. I am so tired of not being able to eat without pain. I am tired of lack of sleep because of the pain at night. Yes, I am tired of the "wisdom" that comes along with this nuisance of a tooth. Will I lack wisdom after this bothersome tooth is gone I wonder? Well, I am assured in the Holy Word if "any lack wisdom let him ask of God who gives to all people!" So, I'm not to worry! His strength is sufficient in my weakness.
Pray for me! It's a week away! Ahhhhhh!!


  1. I don't remember having any significant pain when mine were removed -- of course, I had anesthetic...;) And pain meds afterwards...

    Hope it's not half as bad as you're anticipating!

  2. Hey Sarah, have you tried a charcoal compress?? Sometimes that will help with pain....you just mix Charcoal and flax (to help retain the moisture, and make it into a little paste, then wrap it in a little piece of cloth and stick it in your mouth near the offending area....
