What to say...

I'm not even sure what to say as far as an update goes.

Was there anything different in Chicago?

Not a ton. I will cautiously say that my body does seem to be responding to what I am taking, but it can respond for awhile and then stop. So... the jury is still out on that one.

Overall it was positive, though.

My tooth, the one I wrote about way back in January or February is still in the picture.

For those of you who hadn't read anything about it, my doctor in St. Louis was positive there was an infection in my number 19 tooth that was related to my lung. I didn't really believe him, but a PET scan revealed that there was, indeed an infection, deep down. My option was to pull it, which I wasn't thrilled about.

I put it on the back burner because my naturopathic doctor told me to wait it out for a bit and see.

We both forgot about it because it never ever bugs me.

Last month I asked him about it and some tests revealed that it was still there and was related in a weird way to my lung.

What to do, what to do.

We are watching it. I'm using some things to try and attack it without having to pull the tooth, but next month will show if it is helping or not. If not then we will have to decide if the tooth goes or stays.

Isn't it silly? I'm scared to pull my tooth. I'd rather have a needle poked though my lung or liver than a tooth pulled. I haven't even had my wisdom teeth pulled.

It must be a fear of the unknown going on for me.

People tell me it isn't that bad... but all I can think is, #19 is a huge tooth. It has to come out of my gums........

So.... would you pray that the infection in my tooth would go away? On it's own? That I won't have to have it pulled?

Thanks a million!
