The offending molar, #30, for those who know teeth, came out on Thursday. I elected for IV sedation because I'm tired of pain. On Monday, I noticed pain in my gum line on the opposite side of my mouth and made myself sick with fear that I would need another tooth extracted. Thank goodness, my fabulous dentist fit me in on Tuesday to remove a piece of broken filling that was cutting into my gum every time I chewed, and repaired it on Wednesday with a very small and easy filling. So very grateful.
I went to the library to stock up on some books and DVDs to have on hand while I recuperated. Add in knitting, and I should be okay. For some reason, I forgot to stock up on soft foods, but Steve took care of that for me. I'm doing well, other than napping more than I expected, but I guess the infection has taken a toll on me. I feel like I'm wasting so much of my summer, but I don't have much choice. I am reading quite a bit; a series by Charles Todd, about a nurse during WWI, caught my attention, and it's interesting enough.
Gracie is keeping me company of course.
I took some more photos of the Brickless shawl.
And the Nurmilintu is pretty but slow going. I'm using Neighborhood Fiber sock yarn. I thought it had more flecks of purple than it does, but I still like it.
I don't normally talk politics here, but I was excited that Tim Kaine was chosen as VP nominee; I met him two summers ago during my GMU VCET residency, and liked him. The picture of me is blurred, but I like it anyway.
I look just like a school teacher in that outfit, don't I? Hope you all are surviving the heat dome. Thank goodness for fans; the AC just isn't keeping up without them.
