When life bites back

A couple of days ago, I was looking at the amount in my medical flex account and realized that I had enough to cover my planned expenses, and then some.
You know where this is going, don't you?
Yep .. got back from my dental checkup. The tooth that's been giving me a twinge for the last month is likely cracked. So there may be a root canal and a crown in my immediate future. My share of the crown would be around $375 .. don't know about the root canal costs yet.
So it doesn't look like I'm in any danger of losing the flex-plan money this year ....
I suppose there's one good thing: I do have a coupon for a $25 gift card from CVS if I bring in a new prescription. So if the dentist has to prescribe some, er, strong painkillers, I'll get something back.
