I am off later to have teeth removed. Seven of them. Long story. Basically, I've been spectacularly careless with the state of my teeth over the past 20 years. Well, before that, probably.
I'm not really nervous as such - I've asked to be put under a general anaesthetic, so it's not as if I'll be aware of what's happening. And to be honest, I've had a couple of really major bouts of toothache as a result of my dental problems over the past few months, so am quite keen to just get it out of the way, then get the remaining teeth properly cleaned, get dentures to replace the missing ones, and start taking care of my teeth properly.
Nevertheless, would appreciate prayers, hugs, and general good vibes.
Also, if anyone can negotiate me a decent rate with the tooth fairy? When I was younger I used to get 70p per tooth. Allowing for inflation, I should be quids in with this haul...
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. :-)
