I had root canal done on a tooth on Monday. On Tuesday, the doctor's office called to see if I was alright. Don't they realize that if I wasn't "alright" I would either have called them or not be home because I was in the Emergency Room?

Which part of this extremely simple process needs to be "helped"?
