Please help. Extreme pain...Infection?

I cracked a tooth a year ago, had the root canal done immediately and put off getting the crown.
4 days ago I noticed my gum under the bottom cracked molar was very sore...then it swelled up a lot and was very painful.
I called my dentist and he had to go out of town for a funeral. I asked him for antibiotics, since it is probably an infection in the cracked tooth and he said to wait until he is back this coming week to see him. Said to rinse with salt water and mouthwash, take Motrin every 4 hours.
Well, the pain is so bad tonight I can't sleep...can't eat...And my left gland in my throat is swollen to about 5 times the size as normal.
Is this an abscess?
I called my dr. yesterday too and he is on vacation until Monday.
Friend said I should go to the ER now. That will cost 1K! Please help...Can I wait on this until Monday? The pain is soo bad....
Thanks

-Alexa
