Well, the Evil Fang was safely dealt with on Friday morning. Very painful, but I wont dwell on that.
I must say, the Surgeon is a very kind & caring man, who has a wonderful manner. And the lovely young nurse who assisted him, is also a lovely person, so they both did their best to minimise a hideous experience. And were full of apologies over the missed appointment.
And I was happy to note I never caught sight of Ms Whipped Hairdo- perhaps she was away having a blue retouch, & another pot of 'product' applied!
I have spent the last 2 days zonked out with painkillers in bed, just dozing, & being waited upon, by attentive GOM, so I cant really complain too much.
He has been feeding me slops & generally making sure I am ok. It has not really been as bad as I anticipated, & the old frozen peas seemed to work very well to minimise the swelling. I only hurts when I laugh too hard now!! haha.
I had a phone call from a sister, in NZ yesterday. She had no idea I had had my tooth out, & was surprised to learn I was lying in bed. She told me she was also recumbant, having cracked a bone, & torn tendons in her ankle. She said her "Kitchen Bitch" has been waiting on her hand & foot, & she has even got him trained to anticipate her needs now! He sounded very cheery, & only too happy to be waiting on her. They had just had a holiday when she damaged her ankle, so at least they had most of their holiday time to enjoy themselves.
Before the Fang came out, GOM & I had done a little grocery shopping. As we strolled around the aisles I did my usual people watching. A proud Grandmother was wheeling a baby, & the daughter -or maybe DIL- was moping about the bread aisle, & muttering about vegetables. The G suggested "A piece of pumpkin perhaps?" The DIL mumbled "We dont actually DO pumpkin" To which the startled MIL said, loudly, "Pardon??"
I hate the fact that 'drug' expressions & phrases seem to have entered every day language. Or is it only me? What the hell is "DOING" pumpkin?? What happened to eating? or even just liking or not liking?
It is a slightly cloudy, but sunny day here today, but seems to be very chilly. Kind GOM has been off to get me further painkillers, & made me a coffee. I had dog bodies to keep me warm in bed, but they have gone off outside today.
I have been reading all the blogs I missed out on over the past couple of days. It soon mounts up, when you are not reading them regularly. While I was dozing I thought of lots of post ideas, but they seem to have drifted off when I woke.
I am sure they will return.
Still getting all my music back upstairs.
