The Dreaded Dentist
I must apologise to you all for posting this so late but I had a dental appointment this afternoon and this has set me all behind so it is a very short Journal today.
As usual the morning followed the same pattern as always, jo the carer arrived at 8.45 and once she had me sorted for the day, I got some wheatabix for breakfast and then sent the morning text to Pauline.
I phone my sister Eileen to check that it is still ok for Her and chris to take me to the dentist this afternoon and they will get here about 2.15, and my appointment is for 3.10 so that gives us plenty of time, anyway as it is now 12.30 I get some poached egg on toast for lunch and then get a shave and changed ready for Eileen and Chris to arrive.
The Dental surgeon was very good, he asked a lot of questions, checked out my mouth and made notes about the condition of my teeth and said that it was not as bad as I thought it was and that he would have to extract 2 teeth and there would be 3 fillings but apart from that it would be a case of cleaning them. there were no problems with the gums and although I cannot open my mouth as wide as he would like, it would not pose a problem. There were also a couple of roots where teeth had broken that needed to be extracted and then afterwards I would need a small set of False teeth. so all in all a positive dental appointment. He asked if I was exempt from paying, and as I am receiving Pension credit at the moment then my treatment will be free on the N.H.S. My next appointment is for early October when we will have the x-rays done and start the cleaning process, and he will carry out treatment to my time scale.
So that is about it for today a good day and it was nice to see my sister Eileen and Chris, it is now 5.50 and I need to get dinner started so I will call it a day and get this posted and say tatty bye until tomorrow.
