tooth out

This morning, the Periodontist extracted my rear upper molar. I've been waiting all day for discomfort but it hasn't come so I guess I'm OK. Not filling the prescription he gave me for Tylenol with Codeine seems like the right decision. Still have to eat soft food until tomorrow.

Taking out the tooth was a bit like the large rock that was entwined with the roots of a small tree I removed with a crowbar and grub hoe the other day.

He wants to do root planing and scaling. To keep up with the gardening theme it's just like you do to trees I guess.
