The shortest post ever.
I am fearing today’s dentist appointment for filling a cavity much more than the open pelvic surgery next week. Even the bowel prep for said surgery sounds much more appealing.
Yeah, the last couple dental cleanings have reignited a long-standing anxiety about people sticking sharp objects in my mouth. At least I have the afternoon off work…

Ooo.. I hope it went ok.
I was discussing with a patient today the trade off between vibrations+lots of cold water (ultrasonic cleaning) or sharp pointy objects (a hand scaling). Her response was that they were both closer to purgatory than she really wanted to go.
I think I’m a pretty nice person, but agree that what I do to people for a living often sucks!
Oh, Caroline, I much prefer the ultrasonic cleaning… The filling wasn’t too bad, just that fingers-down-a-chalkboard sound of scraping/shaping the filling…
