Well, I had my 2nd visit at the dentist today. I can’t get my crown done until the ROOT CANAL that was supposedly done in Florida is redone. After having another xray done today, the dentist here found that there was “something” in my tooth canal, but it wasn’t what it was suppose to be.
So, she prodded and found COTTON PACKING! And a pocket of decay due to an infection that I’ve had at some point since the unfinished root canal, presumably from the cotton packing.
She has now referred me to the endodontist for completion of the root canal that wasn’t done properly in Port Salerno, then I’ll go back to her for my crown. I am not, needless to say, a happy camper. Thank GOD I have dental insurance here in the 3rd world, middle eastern country that I live in, that will pay 80% of the tab.
On a happier note… my 1300 calorie a day diet is going well. Health Factory is delivering 3 meals and 2 snacks each evening at around 7 pm. The food is gluten free (per my request) and organic! A bit pricey, but I don’t have to think, and that works well for me! Today’s menu:
Gluten free Bagel w/ Cream cheese, raw veggies and jasmine green tea.
Strawberries and Pineapple chunks
Coleslaw Salad and Seafood Pasta (gluten free)… it had shrimp, calamari and fish in it… YUM
Fresh Fruit Melody
Soba noodle salad dinner w/ peanut sauce
I am satisfied and not hungry. I also went on a 6.5 km walk this morning and did some weight training.
Countdown to Camino de Santiago… 10 weeks and 1 day!
I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS week!
