Another Hard Day At The Dentist

My dear friends it was back to my dentist, Dr. Choi’s office for more dental work yesterday afternoon. I got a filling at my root canal site made permanent. I also got fitter for a crown on my right rear lower wisdom tooth. That one was painful. My teeth have worn out. Dr. Choi has done a wonderful job of saving them but I have suffered pain and discomfort. The positive side to all of this is that I have survived long enough for my teeth to wear out. That is truly a miracle! When my dear mother was alive, I would come to see her. She would smile at me and then bury her face in her hands. When she looked up again she would say to me: “Son it’s a miracle that you’re still alive.”
