Snag in the coronation process

Posted in From Al & Libbie, Prayer Requests, Updates at 8:48 am by Libbie

There is a post below, also written today, about Becky’s graduation. This is the second post today and is a quick prayer request.

A number of weeks ago I reported with elation that we were finally able to get my tooth numb enough to drill it down in preparation for a crown (if you are new to the blog site, you missed that little sub-drama). The dentist put on a temporary crown while the permanent one was made and shipped.

During that waiting time, though, my tooth continued to be sensitive to pressure so that I still couldn’t chew anything at all on that side, even lettuce or soggy cheerios. So I went back to see her, and we discovered that the core of the tooth under the temporary crown is still cracked. (We all assumed that when the one part of the tooth cracked off, that was the only place where it had been cracked, but apparently that wasn’t true.)


So I have an appointment Monday morning to try to numb and drill again to take care of whatever crack remains. I have to admit I am pretty nervous about that after the extended jaw trauma of the previous attempts.

Would you please pray that the Lord would be merciful to my jaw and let the Novocain take on the first try this time? Or that he would give me a soft heart to trust him if that’s not his plan?

Thank you!

    Yes, Pooh does say that.
    He also sagely reflects that “It’s Friendlier with Two”.
    Libbie, count on the prayers of Two (or more) before the throne of grace for you today.
