Update to rant:
1. I look like a lop-sided chipmunk .... everyone asks me if I have cotton stuffed in my right cheek. Sigh. I'm gonna have to punch someone.
2. Had conference with oral surgeon today - will remove what's left of the molar Friday morning (letting the swelling/inflammation from the aborted root canal procedure go down while I build up my antibiotic levels) & insert a bone graft under laughing gas -- for an implant surgery in 2 months. Since it's the last molar in the row, I can't get a bridge or partial for it.
3. If I can't drink, this ain't gonna happen.
[But I am widely separating alcohol intake from antibiotic intake - and being quite moderate.]
Sigh .... I'd kill to chew something crunchy!
I HATE TEETH!!!
