I was supposed to be at the dentist at 9am this morning. I called my sister at 7:30 to find out when she was coming to pick me up to take me. I'm supposed to be doped up on Valium right now, but I'm afraid to take it cause of my other meds, plus I don't want her to have to carry me out to the car. Her daughter answered so I left a message for sis to call me back to let me know what time to be ready. It's a 24 minute drive into town, so I figured by 8:30 at the soonest.
My sister has a thing about time, and I'd love to get into it, but she reads the blog and is mean to me. Suffice to say, if I hadn't been as on the ball as I was, and waited for her to call me back, I would have had to be ready in 7 minutes. Knowing her boss is out of town doing senator duties in our state capitol, I just took my sweet time getting ready. Threw the tennis ball many more times, peed when I didn't really need to, even changed my clothes again. Wandered around aimlessly, looking for my Ipod and camera and purse, even tho I knew exactly where they were since I had PREPARED ahead of time. That'll teach her.
The dentist office called and changed the time to 10:30, so all that I just wrote was unnecessary.
I was soooo pleased with the dentist after the last appointment, but now I've lost confidence in him. He specifically said no sedation, then called to reschedule because he hadn't set up the sedation at the hospital. ??? I decided to keep today's appointment to get it over with - I haven't slept decently since the last appointment - nightmares and flashbacks waking me up.
And knowing about my trip to Reno 4 days after getting the dentures, he didn't seem to think pain or eating issues would be an issue, so I didn't ask him about it. He was all "oh yes, we'll get them done, cause you need to go have fun in Reno, you'll deserve it, no problem, we can do it". I looked dentures up on line and discovered that yes, just 4 days after having all your teeth pulled and dentures set it might be an issue interfering with pain and with eating. ???
He also said to take the Valium last nite, and no food or water after midnite. Umm... it's not going to be sedation, so why the no food or water? ???
Then they called to reschedule it to 10:30. I guess his understanding of this "ordeal" only went so far.
I cleaned up most of the comments so I'll have no unfinished business. Cleaned under the fridge, changed the sheets, cleaned out the aquarium, and vacuumed. I don't have a will, tho. Guess there is still some unfinished business left, but by hell, my apartment is clean! (by hell?) What kind of phrase is that?
Bye. See ya'll later.
(If I don't make it, will somebody throw the tennis ball for Duke?)
