The fistula is on the mend and I am still using the port in my chest. It has finally come time to go to the dentist and get my three teeth out. This will involve me going to the dialysis center at 5:30 AM. Then leaving for a 3 1/2 hour drive to go to the closest dentist that will still work on me. This hopefully will be the last time we will need to use the port my chest.

Once I get to the dentist the first thing they do is hand me a bill. After I pay my bill they will do the work. When I finally get into the dentist chair it goes like any other dentist would do. They numb you up and get to work. After that they go through the medicines and painkillers that I will be taking. Once we look at it, we know that I cannot take any of these medicines for painkillers. Then we talked to the kidney doctors to find out what medicines and painkillers I can take. They allow me to take the amoxicillin but in a smaller dose. This doesn’t last long because I start breaking out in little red dots and I am itching everywhere. So I finally have to change that medicine too.

After they removed my teeth and they tell me that the roots of one of the teeth was long enough to make it to my nasal cavity. This means I will be making a another trip back to the dentist. That’s when they will make sure the hole from my mouth into my nasal cavity has closed up. Now that they’re done the right side of my face is all bruised up. So I get all those great comments like: what does the other guy look like, why do you get her mad and who would you been fighting. Hopefully now that I have waited about a year and a half to get these teeth out everything else will go smoothly for a while.
