On second thought, it's probably best if you don't come back, woeful tooths. I will go broke if I have to pay to pull you out every week.


I went to the oral surgeon today and did a review of my tooths. The funny thing is that I went in telling him I wanted the two on my left side removed, and then he launched into his spiel to try to convince me to have them removed.

Dr: "There is a lot of tissue swelling. This causes it to be really hard to clean, letting bacteria and food to get trapped back there, which can lead to gum and bone disease."
Me: "Yup."
Dr: "It's easier to get them removed when you're younger...if you wait, it becomes harder and harder for the body to get through the removal and recovery."
Me: "Yes...I am here to get them removed. You don't have to convince me."
Dr: "Oh, uh..."

I totally threw him for a loop; it was awesome! Anyway, it's scheduled for the 22nd and they're going to put me under for it so I am not really worried. I will have to find someone to watch Oliver though so Ari can drive me there and accompany me.

The only annoying thing is the cost. My medical bills are pretty exciting ... it seems like it's $500 every few weeks for this or that. Oh well.
