Well the wisdom tooth came out this morning. A lovely India lady Dentist took it out. She was so tiny, I towered over her but boy did she have strong fingers. She also knew a lot of my friends so we had quite a talk whilst waiting for the anaesthetic to take effect. Didn't feel a thing apart from tugging and pulling but out it came without difficulty.
Mouth sore and have to only have tepid drinks and soft food for the next 24 hours and then on Saturday can start salt rinses 3 times daily for the next week. Scrambled Eggs and chocolate pudding for lunch! Did have a bit of a bleed at lunchtime but soaked a pad in cold water, squeezed it out and then bit on it for 10 minutes which seems to have done the trick.
Himself came with me just in case anything else needed to be done. Had the usual job of finding a parking space - this at 8.55 a.m. and all the disabled spots were full. I am sure they park overnight! Did manage to get a space in the main car park but as the hospital is then up the hill, bit of a struggle for me so had to hang onto him as well.
We have the Maritime Dinner tonight as it is the 206th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. At least it is not evening dress as it has been in the past. Don't think I could be bothered to drag out the glad rags. Fish is the main course so should be soft to eat and will have to let it get really cool. Don't know what the other courses are so long as not cockles and mussels as I am allergic to those.
Berry pup has been close to me all day as has Minniecat. It's as if they know something is not quite right. So have been resting, reading and listening to the radio. My freezer man arrived as well so have ordered the Christmas pies and desserts - they should be delivered in a month's time. As we are out Christmas Day and New Year and I have people coming Boxing Day, at least I have something I can take to help out and to feed those coming!
Other bit of good news - I had a phone call from physio this afternoon. I now have an appt for the 3rd November at our local surgery to have my shoulder looked at, so things beginning to look up.
Now that the tooth has gone and I don 't need pain killers and antibiotics for the future, going to try to go back onto my diet to get off the weight the steroids have piled on again. LavendarLadyx (PS photo is of my grand daughter when she was 3 hours old).
