This Post Took a Turn
'Tis the season of the Dentist,
Falala lala la la.
My dearest husband hasn't gotten his teeth clean in twenty years. He had a dentist as a teen that was kind of a sadist which really turned him off of dentistry. *sings "I Am A Dentist" from Little Shop of Horrors in head*
So, we trekked to get them clean on a snow falling kind of day. Started out light, got worse as we got closer to the little town where a dentist in his group is actually at. That was fun finding them as the other dentists in the town were pediatric dentist or braces only orthodontics. I could hear the receptionists rolling their eyes as they tried to explain it all to me. Upshot, we can't help you. heh.
I warned the dentist that he doesn't like going.
It was like when he got a tattoo. The hygienist would stop, see how he was doing and give him a little break or remind him he needed to breath. I can't tell you how much I appreciated her patience. Because he's going back. The comic said to her as he was finished up "Best cleaning job I've had in 20 years!"
"Hey, it's the only cleaning job you've had in 20 years!" Did I mention he hates the dentist?
Today I get to take oldest to see if he will get braces or what feel needs done. It's such a wonderfully skippy day! Not looking forward to this.
Update on sis who has become a new grandmother and her husband has been going through cancer treatment.
Haven't heard the news from his latest tests. He's getting along fairly good considering.
She, however, not so much. She got fired from her job Thursday. I suspect it's because she's had such a dramatic year. She couldn't be there for the birth of the baby because she was at a conference type thing. She said her boss was fairly unsympathetic when she told her the news that she was a grandma. Kind of that's great, now about this next meeting.... attitude. I don't know all the details. I just know that it's two weeks before Christmas, her husband has been going through cancer treatments, her daughter had a baby and is to getting a wedding together for April and her other daughter is finishing up a practicum and gearing up for an internship. Seriously, if you pray for strangers, please pray for them.
Ah. I see this post took a left hand turn on me. Well, all well wishes, warm thoughts or prayers are welcome.
