View Full Version : Two Root Canals tomorrow and sons Graduation Saturday!

I need prayer, I have been fighting major infections for months now. From stomach to skin and now I have two bad teeth that needs root canals. The dentist don't want to wait as I am now back on Imuran and antibiodics so tomorrow morning they are going to do both teeth. (Upper Left and Lower right).

The big thing is that Saturday is my oldest sons HS graduation. We are expecting 20 -30 out of town relatives to show up. My son has learning issues and has been in special education since before Kindergarten so for him to be graduating on time and with a slightly modified diploma with a 3.65 gpa all four years with little assistance is a major accomplishment in this young mans life.

When he entered kindergarten we were told he was severly mentaly retared and he would never be able to tye his own shoes let alone be on his own or drive a car or talk properly. Well he proved them wrong. He has a job, he is driving, he can tie his own shoes, talk & for fun he trains & shows dogs in 4H as a hobby. He can read at an 8th grade level and has done algabra with very little help from anyone he excelled in Band and JROTC.

I don't want to be sick or hurting this weekend I want to enjoy watching my son get his diploma and celebrate with the rest of the family! We are so proud of him for not quiting when school got tough but hanging in there. It hasn't been easy for him or us but he did it and now we get to celebrate.

I hate that I have to have two root canals tomorrow but at least I will be able to eat again (eating this last week has been extremely painful). Please be in prayer for me.

Thank you

First off...Congratulations!
I am sure you are so proud and I happy your son proved the doctors wrong! MIND OVER MATTER! He sounds like a wonderful person and a great student with that GPA. Saturday is going to be a wonderful Joyous day for you as his mom and your family! I wish you well with the root canals! Better sooner than later so you can eat again. Mouth, back, foot, and Lupus pain as far as I am concerned are the worse!
You are in my prayers for healing and recovery so you can smile/laugh/cry as your son walks the stage for his accomplishments being the young man he was raised to be and has become!
Congrats again!

Debbi, my prayers are with you! The good thing about root canals is that it's an almost instant fix. No root, no pain! I've had several (damn Lupus mouth), and have never one had a bad experience.

I am so excited that you get to experience this blessed event with your son. He sounds like a truly outstanding young man!! Give him a hug from all of us!!
