No normal post for today. . .Reason? I'm having a major dental procedure done today. At 2:40 this afternoon I will be having all of my upper teeth removed and 4 bottom wisdom teeth as well in anticipation of a full upper denture. I have wanted this procedure done for years, and now the time has come. After taking care of other people, it is time to take care of me. My father's side of the family (whom I take after) was cursed with bad teeth. My father had dentures by age 46. I've just gotten so tired of not smiling, not wanting to go to functions, etc. because of my failing teeth. For years I've endured painful procedures (i.e. root canals, crowns, extractions, etc.) to no avail. I've always been terrified by dentists because of some horrible experiences as a kid, so going this afternoon, is almost like driving myself to a nightmare. The other thing that will be tough to deal with is having no upper teeth until the first week of January! OMG I can't imagine that, but hopefully the final outcome will be well worth it.
So please think about me today and tonight (I have a feeling that tonight is going to be a rough one). Send out positive thoughts that I get through this rough part and that today goes well!
