A couple of weeks ago, John had me call Dr. Howard because he had a tooth that was bothering him, and he wanted to see about getting in. They worked him in and filled the tooth, but Dr. Howard said he didn't know if it would work. If it didn't, he told John he'd probably need a root canal. He went ahead and gave him the referral for one just in case. Over the next several days, John's tooth kept bothering him, so he finally called and scheduled the root canal.
We got up early this morning so we could be in Birmingham a little before 9. He got the paper work done, and right at 9 they called him back. Since it was going to take about an hour, I almost left. Good thing I didn't because at 9:15, he was finished. The endodontist (I never did ask John what his name is) felt like a root canal really wasn't necessary right now. He said that probably what happened was that the filling inflamed the root, and that is why John's tooth kept bothering him, but now it has settled. So, for now, no root canal. Yea!!!
Instead of coming straight home, we went to Dick's, Academy, Restoration Hardware, and a few other places. One of the places we went was called Walton's Cabin. They have lots of "cabin-y" kinds of stuff--signs, frames, pictures. I found a cute Smith Lake sign for $24.95, but I think I can recreate it. I'm going to try anyway. :)
For lunch, John wanted to stop at The Fish Market. YUM!! He had jambalaya and a Greek salad, and I got grilled tuna with Greek spices and a Greek salad. It was delish! We don't go there much, but I would say it is probably one of my favorite restaurants.
After we got home, we cleaned up the boat, so it's ready to go. Yea! We are SO ready to take it out for some late afternoon rides.
I love spending time with John. We don't have to be doing anything "important" but every minute is one that I treasure. He really is my best friend. :)
That's it for tonight. Unless something changes, I'm going to get a pedicure tomorrow.
Have a GREAT Thursday!
