My oral surgeon says that the bottom wisdom teeth should come out, but the top ones can stay in unless they become a problem. So even with the anti-inflammatory steroid injection that the insurance doesn’t cover, our out-of-pocket expenses for this (including medications) should be around $200.
He prescribed two Valium doses so I could take one as ‘practice’ and make sure I know how it’ll affect me. That way I can figure out whether I can just take the bus there and back, or whether I need to take a cab.
Sadly, I got ink on my new mall-bought jeans. A coworker says that’ll just make them look even more Abercrombie, so don’t worry about it. But I think I’ll try to remove the ink tonight. I also have to keep cleaning the house, go to the library to drop off and pick up, drop off the stuff I’m giving away, etc.
Busybusybusy… but last night’s break (hanging out with friends while they had dinner; I didn’t want to inflict Cheesecake Factory on my gut or my wallet, but I really enjoyed myself and drank lots of Diet Coke refills) was a good thing.
