It has been another busy few days. Wednesday I did my exercises, went grocery shopping, and then we worked outside before hurrying off to Irene's cross country meet, then we grabbed some dinner at a Subway sandwich shop before going to the train to get to a 7:30 Sounders match at the stadium. We won. Yay!
Thursday I decided the tooth ache I was developing was getting serious enough that I should call the dental clinic. I called at 11:00 and got an appointment that same day for 2:00. The problem was a cavity in a wisdom tooth. The best solution was extraction. I said "Do it!"
The dentist, a very nice young lady I had not seen before, explained that it might be tricky because the tooth had a crown as well as a cavity and was well embedded in my jaw. The crown might pop off, then the tooth might break because of the cavity, and the extraction might take some work. OK then. I waited for the Novocaine to kick in, gripped the chair arms, and made it through all of the above, greatly relieved when I heard the words, "It's out".
I was planning to go to Irene's middle school band concert that evening, but when Tom left at 6:30 the Novocaine had not yet worn off and I did not know if I would be in pain when it did, so I stayed home. I had fixed dinner for Tom and reserved some for me for later. By 7:00 I was happy to see that I was feeling OK, just a little discomfort, and I ate my dinner.
There is still a little bit of ache as I post this on Friday afternoon, but not bad, the wisdom tooth is gone, and hopefully I am none the less wise for losing it. :-) Oh, and yesterday my hair salon called to cancel my appointment for next Tuesday, but I was able to get it rescheduled for today.
So now I have had my breakfast with friends, have been properly shorn, went for my two mile walk with my trusty partner, and spent some time working in the yard since the sun was shining again. All is good.
I hope you have a good weekend. Ours will be busy again.
