New dental freak-out date

The dentist's office just called. They had a cancellation, so I'm now having my teeth worked on tomorrow morning at 8:30. If you're the praying type, I'd certainly appreciate it if you send up a little prayer for me to stay calm and be easily numbed. (Novocaine and I have a history of not working well together.) I'm always a sweaty-palmed, butterfly-filled bundle of shaky nerves when I go in for dental work, and I'd love it if I could actually be semi-calm for once.

My cat Calvin goes to the vet for a teeth cleaning next month. He gets to be completely knocked out for his procedure. Right now, I'm insanely jealous of him.

I'll be praying for you Anne Marie! Let us know how you're doing when it's all done. If you have a portable cd player or ipod/mp3 player I highly recommend it. But you'll be fine :)

Thank you! I really appreciate it. Part of what makes it all so nerve-wracking for me is that numbing me is always an ordeal. Novocaine and I do not get along.

I have my iPod plugged into the computer right now to juice it up. If I have time, I'll add one of my more-relaxing albums to it (the soundtrack from Green Card). Hopefully, that will help me somewhat to calm down.

I will pray for you. Give us an update. I truly sympathize with the dental issues!
