epidurals and laughing gas

It's no small secret that i love epidurals. I'm not big on taking medicine if it can be avoided, generally speaking, but i am a big fan of epidurals.

I will find out in less than 12 hours if i feel the same way about laughing gas. I'm 30 years old, and i have my first cavity.

I'm freaking out a little. My dentist (who's also a friend of ours from church in Boston) obviously saw the panic in my face as soon as he informed me that my perfect dental record was no more. Without even asking me, he told his hygenist we were going to need nitrous.

I think i'm about to find out why so many people dread going to see their dentist...

You will be fine and do great!!! I talk- non stop- when I'm on laughing gas. It's quite funny. It's also quite fun.
