At Least One Thing worked out

This is the patched floor.

All being well, tomorrow should see the new carpet laid.

BUT!...
The Evil Fang is still in situ!

I think my subconscious must have known it was not coming out yesterday.

I seemed unnaturally calm all day.

Then, when we arrived at the surgery, we were informed that they were running a "good 20 minutes late" "Would you like to go for a wander, for a while?"
Biting back the urge to scream NO! we left & drove off in the car.
GOM thought he would just & register the car, in the spare few minutes.
Didnt happen. Queues abounded, & time ticked away, so he came back out, & we zoomed back to the Oral Surgeons.

To be met by Mrs Mutton-dressed-as-lamb Mrs Whipped Hairdo, indicating me, with a stab & saying "Is this the patient?"

I instantly knew, this could not be good. Mrs Whipped Hairdo proceeded to inform us that the Surgeon had been urgently called to operate at the Hospital, & so he was unavailable to do my "Proceedure".

Which irrating term now seems to be what they use, instead of the actual, factual, 'removal' or 'pulling' of the tooth.

I was so angry I couldnt speak. She made a new appointment for Friday morning, at 8.15am. And I suppose there are no guarantees that will work out either.

GOM had a face like thunder. We left speechless amid Mrs Whipped Hairdo squeaking "It cant be helped. We are sorry. But someone's in trouble"
Which just seemed to make it worse.
I felt like yelling "JUST SHUT THE FECK UP!!"

You poor dear - although your description of mutton dress up as lamb had me laughing and then, I too had a desire to say something nasty to her. Thankyou for your lovely comments Meggie, may the time pass quickly.

daysgoby said...

Eeek! Meggie, I hope this is over quickly. Any hope of extra gas or oral drugs beforehand? I go to a dentist that advertises 'gentle dentistry' and they toss the pain meds around like candy....hmm...does this mean drugs ARE the answer?

DubiQuilts - Debbi said...

Oh, I would be mad and tell them off, then getting my hubby mad at me. Are you in pain? Take care.

joyce said...

Oh, poor you to have to wait another week and stress out some more. At least there is some progress on the floor.

ancient one said...

I can't believe they put you off again...oh well, now you can supervise the carpet laying without the swollen jaw... Hope all goes well!!

caramaena said...

aargh! I hope you aren't in too much pain until they can sort out the fang.

Bren said...

Oh Meggie. I try hard not to laugh at your misfortune, but why bother. You can't see me anyway. So now I will LMAO. Keep making things light and you will survive this too!

Helen said...

Ah Meggie, as my Dah use to say "Nil Desperandam" i.e. Never Despair - easier said than done sometimes though. Even in spite of that, you still make us laugh I'm sure you mean to - hope so anyway....chin up chum, we are all with you.

Stomper Girl said...

Poor Meggie. Antici - - - - - - - - - pation is the worst.

sMC said...

ummm so I don't suppose they regard you as "beng in trouble". Hang in there The Scot has found a dear dentist called Sally Soo. She is very gentle and very efficient. Pity you don't live closer.

Sarah Nopp said...

I am so sad for you! Your stress and suffering over this 'procedure' have been so long and trying. Take a can of streamers next time- let if off if they actually take you in!
You are holding out well... just a couple days longer.

Alice said...

Didn't Mrs Whipped Hairdo know that in one more second SHE was the one who was going to be in trouble?

Oh shoot! Car not registered, tooth not removed - just wasn't your day, was it, Meggie?

Ali Honey said...

Oh Meggie , I feel sick just thinking about it. You're at their Bl...y Mercy. Meanwhile gargle with something strong and medicinal...Whisky or Brandy are both good....even if you don't swallow it all; although a few swallows helps.

smilnsigh said...

Ohhhhhhh sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! And grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, too. And I also know exactly what you wanted to say to Mrs. Whipped Hairdo when she was squeaking at you. It starts with 'F' but the second letter is not "E." It's "U"!!!!!!!!!

And please let me say that I so appreciate your reading and commenting in my blog. And I so hate it, that I am curtailed in my net time, with this ding-dang {fill in the real words please} hurting back. Hate it!!!

I know we are supposed to blog without obligation and I try. But it's still a battle. I just hate it when I can't read/comment in others, as much as I want.

Please just know this.

And gooood vibrations coming at you, for the ding-dang Friday appointment!!!!! That it materializes!

Hugs, Mari-Nanci

Molly said...

Meggie! You've been prolific while I've been a lazy, pre-occupied blogger. Sorry the fang is still with you. Hope the week flies. Ali's gargling/swallowing ideas sound sound!

Jeanette said...

Ohh Meggie I think I would have sworn at her shes not the one suffering, Mum always put brandy on a cotton bud on to our tooth She said it was to get the tooth drunk and it would stop aching Lol.

Vita said...

Hope all goes well next time 'round. DD has to see an oral surgeon tomorrow to contemplate removing her molars, which hopefully didn't become impacted while we waited for a time to schedule surgery. Best of luck to you.

riseoutofme said...

Fangs (!) for the giggles Meggie ... not laughing at you, OF COURSE, but the mental image of Mrs Mutton dressed as Lamb!!!

I think you need a Meggie size basket to curl up in, be pampered and cossetted, with meals and refreshments toted regularly to your side and an ever-present, reverential air to pervade your immediate environs so that all will bow and scrape and beg your forgiveness and stand in AWE at your STOICISM.

Thats what I think, anyway.

Thimbleanna said...

Dear Meggie, apparently you aren't "in trouble". You have the best way of making a not-funny situation be very funny. I hope you're feeling better soon. At least you can be grateful that you don't have a whipped hairdo!

Isabelle said...

Oh dear, poor you indeed. Our kittens would sympathise: they got their first vaccinations today and they weren't very enthusiastic. Mind you, neither was I when I got the bill! We could have bought 5 and a half new cats for the price of two vaccinations.

Fingers crossed that the next visit to the dentist goes smoothly.

Sheila said...

Sorry to hear you are still suffering with that tooth Meggie, I was sure you would have had relief by now.
Fingers crossed for Friday..!

crafty said...

Yes, I agree with Stomper, it's the anticipation that's the worst part. When I know something is wrong and something needs to be done, I am very impatient for it to just be over with.
I had to giggle at Mrs Mutton dressed as lamb though...

dragonflyfilly said...

hmmmm, sometimes i wonder if some of these surgeons don't just thrive on emergencies...and i guess Miss Mutton/Whipped Hairdo could not be doing her job too well if she could not palcate you...it probably would have been best to just re-book right away instead of sending you away for 20 minutes...you may not have been so mad.

anyway, i hope it all works out for you soon...can't wait to see the update on the carpet!

cheers for now,
pj

p.s. would you mind if i nominated you to be one of the six people i choose for the "Smooze" award? to see what that is (if you don't already know) check it out at "Flamingo's Hideaway"

My float said...

Someone's in trouble? Yes, that would be YOU, Meggie. I hope you shouted that at them!

Having suffered with excruitiating tooth pain a few weeks ago, I'd like to say how much I sympathise with you!

I hope it goes on Friday.

Molly said...

Meggie, throbbing fangs aside, did you get a chance to see "your" Leo and Honey on the link from my "Dunedin" post? Quilt # 5 I believe it was.....

Ragged Roses said...

Hi Meggie, thanks for your lovely comments. Mrs Whipped Hairdo has it coming to her! Good luck with that tooth - I really hope it's sorted out quickly for you.

tracey petersen said...

SOmeone certainly should be in BIG trouble if they cannot help you!

Quilting Kim said...

Meggie - I'm surprised that you did not wreck havoc on that office - I have this mental image of you being a force of nature and leaving poor Mrs. Whipped Hairdo shaking in her boots (he-he). And, when did the terminology change to become procedures? Good luck with that tooth and hopefully, you will feel relief real soon.
