after extensive conversation with my attys, i think its in my best interest, not to file an appeal and let sleeping dogs lie. the hardest part of all of this is knowing the dr. was wrong and hes getting away with it. i guess i should be thankful, i am still alive. it just hurts to know the profession i worked in for over 20 years let me down. i will never get my former self back, but i can get better than i am now, always room for improvement, i suppose. now to top things off, i have recently found out that a root canal i had awhile ago, part of an instument was left in the tooth canal, which has recentlycaused me a massive infection, that made my head the size of a basketball. i was at the point of cutting it off and shooting some hoops,lol. the pain was so bad, i haven't been able to sleep for days, but today the swelling has gone down some, i am on 2 antibiotics 4x a day and 2 pain meds that barely touched the pain. and the dentist that did the root canal is out of business, bankrupt, go figure. i guess its just the black cloud over my head. next week has to be better, right.
