Mine was sorely lacking this morning. My mouth was killing me enough that I had taken something for pain (this is the woman who did not bother with pain meds post surgery) and I awoke in a puddle of drool with part of my lower face completely numb. Yep, nerve gone out to lunch with this dull throbbing ache under it all.
Dental clinic visit to Heidelberg this time saw me first on the list just after 0700 and finally out of there shortly after 1100. After doing more diagnostic stuff than I have ever seen a dentist try, the good Captain identified what she thought was a root going bad. “How does this cold feel?” doesn’t work if you are numb. My answers did not thrill her, but the resulting excavation turned into the first part of a very much needed root canal.
I still have some numbness (and the anesthetic is long gone) but it is much less than this morning. We will not talk about how this made my lack of singing ability that much worse or affected me trying to lead services tonight. To add insult to injury – the 18 year old is coming down with something so I did not have her to act as Cantor.
All in all – I needed the following link – which are a combination of knitted, crocheted and a bit of plastic canvas. Go look. While you are at it – you can also read about the History of the Naugas.
More progress. Most of the tiles are grouted, and the shower base is finished.
Fun – in the shape of bright coloured ComfortZone plastic needles ordered from Knitting on the Go. These should be almost fool proof for the trip. Not expensive, completely polymer and unlikely to upset any of the securtiy points. Plus, since I ordered different colours for every size – I should not be mixing up needles…..
And yes, that is the Getty
Uck to the tooth. Thankfully no trouble with teeth and I have seen a dentist in about 13 years.
Bathroom is looking good.
Those needles look good. What a great idea to get a different colour for every size.
