The Matron is trying to pick up yesterday's spirit, buff that sentiment up a bit and set it down in front of her, all shiny. It's there, trust her. She has terrific dental insurance.
But also. . . she's feeling a little sorry for herself!
Today, she experienced the delicacies of the dental chair--shuttling between not just one but two separate offices--for just under three hours. The end result? One tooth and root, gone. Bone graft. And the ever popular 'flipper' or retainer with a fake front tooth. Front tooth! Which she must gum and muck through for four months.
Dentist Two: "Good weight loss plan, though! Most everybody who wears one that long drops a few pounds."
Dr. R, did you notice that the Matron weighs about, oh, ZERO!??
Better yet? This is how the instructions start on the antibiotic she was given:
WARNING: This medication may cause a severe (rarely fatal) intestinal condition (pseudomembranous colitis) due to a type of resistant bacteria. This condition may occur during treatment or weeks to months after treatment has stopped.
Thank God the Matron has this material, undoubtedly which will result in a trip to the Emergency Room sometime down the road -- months out!
Time to gum some dinner!
