I had two molars removed Friday.
I will be the first to admit it, I'm a wuss when it comes to going to the dentist -- I honestly don't like needles, but neither do I like teeth pain, so when it became necessary recently, I made an appointment with the dentist. However, I'm thankful I'm not allergic to all pain-medications or anesthetics, unlike my Uncle, who, when I was a little girl, went in for surgery and died on the operating table within ten minutes of being put under, because, unbeknownst to the anesthesiologist, he was highly allergic to it.
I'm also thankful for all the people who were praying for me and for the hand of Jesus I was hanging onto, to get past my fear. If you have healthy teeth, give thanks for them!!!
