Back from Dentist....


                          And it was a bit more "interesting" than normal...
 
              We seem to have scared my Dentist rather badly, when we quit breathing...
Could not breath... making a sound like a badly clogged drain... started turning a nice shade of purplish red... and The Dentist was at a bit of a loss.... he quit and called my Step-mother to come and get me... Breathing evened back out after a bit... and he was then able to extract two more teeth (with very long root...) the one he finally got out he had to use a pair of channel-locks (well over a foot long) looked like a tool for a plumber... So, a bit of a "stressful" visit...

  2. Well, glad you're okay after that ordeal! I've only ever had two teeth extracted and neither one was a pleasant experience.

    1. Actually, three, now that I think about it. But one molar was so loose and wiggly from bone loss in my jaw that it practically jumped out of my mouth by itself, lol.

  3. O, Stacey....so sorry for the unpleasant and hurtful trip to the dentist....I am about to have all my top teeth pulled...they are all loose from bone loss...the bottom teeth seem ok...I am NOT looking forward to false uppers but...it is what it is...maybe you can drink beef and chicken broths to help you keep strength thru all this....

      You should have seen how badly my breathing attack scared him...
