OH MY GOSH!!! How awful - you poor thing! But what a trooper that you can see the blessings.
Having pain and problems with your teeth is horrible - I've ben what you've been through - not the extent you had - but having an infection in your jaw/mouth affects your entire being. I will soooooo be praying for you sweetie - for quick healing and restful nights. Hang in there. Know I'm thinkin' of ya!
