That must have been horrible for you, mixlass. I'm sorry it happened. I hope the guy will be okay.
Keep us posted on the goings on with your mouth. I don't know what's what, but when such as this happens, I feel they address emergencies. If it couldn't wait 3 weeks, your consultation would be happening sooner than three weeks. Of course, I could be wrong, but that's the way I look at things and I don't worry till I know about what I should be worrying. And, I'm not saying that because it is you that has the potential worry rather than I; it truly is the way I approach "stuff."
Again, I know understand your especially missing Mick now with this news. I've been 2 foot surgeries, back surgery, and knee surgery since my husband's death, mixlass, so please know that I do indeed know about needing your spouse by your side at such times. I hope we can be an okay replacement lean-to in Mick's absence. You have us...don't forget...when there is no one else, you have us.
I'll be thinkNbouthcha.
