Smartin' Man

Wednesday, January 21, 2009
I'm taking a vacation day tomorrow, as the Smartin' Man has to go see the incomparable Dr. Hunter to have his wisdom teeth pulled.

All four are coming out, and he also has a nasty recurring abscess under one that's been bothering him for several years. His ENT guy performed surgery on it a couple of years ago, but it never really healed up. Dr. Hunter thinks he can get it cleaned up after the tooth is pulled, and hopefully there'll be no more occurrences.

So Smartin' Man will be all wheeee! on percocet tomorrow, and I'll be serving up the squishy stuff for several days.

We'll be going to see a commemorative screening of Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan tonight in order to have some popcorn before it's smoothies and yogurt time.

Khan!!

Ouch. But it's great that you can go see the best of the TOS movies first.

I've said all I'm going to about pain today, except, "The percocet is your friend."

GF called me today to say I should change the Netflix queue around to keep me entertained when I get home from the hospital.

::Fingers crossed for Friday::

Nathan, we'll keep our fingers crossed for you, too.

Blech. Good luck to the Smart Man. Raise a toast to Senor Montalban for me while you enjoy the screening.

Nathan, I'm crossing fingers, toes, eyes, hairs, etc for you.

Having just had dental work on 3/4 of my mouth (nothing as extreme as four wisdom teeth plus an abscess), I sympathize!

Considering that SmartMan will be loopy and you still have DDog, I may have to show up on your doorstep to see the fun. ;)

Khaaaaan!

Totally worth dental surgery to see ROK in the theater. Whoot!

Being a veteran of massive dental surgery on more than one occassion, I can honestly say when it gets that bad the surgery will help.

And in my case, it significantly reduced the number of sinus infections I normally get.

enjoy the percocet...you'll need it.

There's a sign in my neighborhood that says "Ask Us About Laser Dentistry."

I'm kind of afraid. Do I want to know? o.O
