|Temporary crowning place, can you spot it?|
Very lucky this morning folks! I was able to secure an appointment with my dentist, Dr. Andy, to replace my broken crown.
I spent about an hour and a half in the dental chair, while my gums were dug into, molds taken and needles injected.
I now have a temporary crown. My new crown will be ready when I return from California, next month February 24th.
Now my challenge is that I don't break this temporary crown that is in my mouth. I was fearing that I would spend my two weeks in California gap toothed. Even though Pat said I looked "sort of cute" with the gap toothed, no thanks folks. It would be just my luck that I would be called up on stage when we attend our annual "The Price is Right" show.
Now I have to be very careful what I eat. No more pita chips (my favorite) or bagels (which I never eat).
Of course this replacement crown is yet another financial hit. Just when I think I'm getting ahead, another big expense turns up. However, I am thankful I can afford these unexpected financial hits but man oh man, I would like a stretch where I can save some money.
No complaints here though folks, I'm a lot better off than many. I'm still here and walking and breathing and enjoying life in spite of these minor setbacks.
