Obstacle Overcome

The dental crisis is over. A tooth was extracted — it couldn't be saved — and I had an appointment today to remove the stitches from my mouth. Today was the fastest and least expensive thing I've had done to me all year. $8.00 for 15 minutes work.

Compare that to the work done ten days ago, which involved about five hours in the chair, and left my wallet rather a great deal lighter and me feeling like I'd been hit in the face by a brick. At least I got codeine out of the deal. It was, unfortunately, necessary for a few days.

Now that the abscess has been removed eradicated destroyed dealt with, we're on track for a brain surgery date of December 13th, two weeks from tomorrow.

At least it's not on a Friday the 13th. Not that I'm superstitious, but I have to wonder if any of the people in the O.R. might be. I expect not, but you never know.

The countdown resumes.

You'll be in our prayers buddy. Take care and rest up.

How long do you expect to be away from the keyboard afterwards?

Hey Comrade--I've been away for a bit visiting a good friend of mine, but know that you're in my prayers, too. Primarily for the coming Workers' Revolution, but also for the surgery and your health. Success there would be a rather delightful Christmas present.
