Thanks for all the good wishes, folks. Just a quick update here-
The vacant tooth area is progressing- though I spent a good week waiting for it to heal up and stop hurting - without antibiotics, on the dentist's say so. It wasn't really getting better.
So, I started doing a little irregular self treatment with leftover antibiotics (NOT something I recommend; but these are fresh). And it's doing much better now.
But. Of course. Now we've all been hit by that scourge of humanity- the common cold. Almost certainly transmitted via infectious agents in Smidgen's preschool.
And it's a doozy. I don't remember dribbling and sneezing this much, in spite of all the over-the-counter remedies; in decades.
Cripes. A little too close to brain-dead for good blogging just now.
Can't even nap, really. Too much dribbling and exploding.
Never mind the basic theology behind "Why did God allow Hiroshima?" I want to know why any god would allow the common cold.
