Recovering

My lovely spouse had oral surgery today. The earliest appointment she could get was at 1:30 p.m. She could have a light breakfast, but nothing past 7 a.m. She was actually a much better sport about it than I was when I had work done back in December. I know for a fact that I go cranky.

It was on a front tooth. A crown with a post broke off clean about a month ago. Today they cut what remained of that baby and did a bone graft. You would not believe how much fun this procedure brings to the recipient.  

She was biting down on a wad of gauze. When she tried to talk, all I heard was mwa mwa mwa mwa. When I asked her to repeat, she said the same thing, only louder. I started shaking my head as if I understood her message and drove on toward the house. 

I'd cleared it with my boss to work from home today and tomorrow. I'll keep a close eye on her progress. She's in pain, but she already feeling a little better.

I normally post my column from Sunday's paper, but his week's column was about our friend Louis. It was totally different from the blog entry I wrote last Sunday but I thought I'd leave that subject alone.

  4. I'm sure after going through with this yourself, you have a good understanding what she's going through. I hope she heals quickly.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. Glad your lovely wife is recovering and starting to feel better. That is one touchy subject for sure. There is some dental work in my future but I'm leaving well enough alone for now...I may regret the wait, but I'm ok for now.

  7. Ughhh...I feel so bad for your spouse and I hope today she is feeling even better. I am phobic with the dentist and have to go Thursday for just a cleaning. I know they will find a cavity because I see it myself. I think I would want to be put out for what your gal went through.
