Turns out it wasn't the operation to remove the teeth today, just a chat about the operation to remove the teeth, which covered no ground that hadn't already been covered by the previous discussion with my dentist. Even included getting another x-ray, as the one I'd got done at the dentist's isn't good enough quality. All seemed rather superfluous. Harrumph.
So, I feel rather deflated. On the bright side, I've had a date set for the pre-op (April 11th) and the operation itself (April 26th), so in a little over a month it'll all be over. Yay! for our side.
Also, I have the day off work, and The Daemons arrived yesterday, followed by Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away today. So that'll keep me busy. :-)
