They must have some new numbing stuff out because after 4 shots of Novocain (or whatever it is now) the bottom right side of my mouth got really numb but by the time the dentist was done removing the old crown, filling the little cavity, preparing the site for the temporary crown & placing the temporary crown...my face was no longer numb! I was amazed. But tonight it feels like someone punched me in the jaw. I go back on the 27th for the permanent crown.
So after the dentist, I went to the Post Office and only had to wait in line about 10 minutes (will wonders never cease?). I mailed a package and got some miscellaneous stamps. Last week I was going thru a drawer in my desk and found 45 stamps that were worth either 33 or 32 cents. Since our First Class postage is now 41 cents, I had to get odds and ends of stamps to make up the difference.
I got a call from little Peyton's grandma just before I left for the dentist. Peyton is up to 4 pounds and 7 ounces and it looks like she gets to come home Saturday. Her mommy is going to check into the hospital Friday and "room-in" with Peyton over night, so the nurses can go over all the things she needs to know once Peyton gets home. This is good news for the whole family. Peyton's mom has already had to go back to work but they are giving her next week off to try and get in a routine with the baby at home. After that it's back to work. My friend Judy (grandma) will be baby sitting her on Mondays & Tuesdays and her auntie on her daddy's side of the family will be watching her Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. It's sad that these young mom's have to work and take these little ones out in the cold each morning. Wouldn't it be nice if she could just stay home and enjoy her baby for at least a year? Some countries give a year's paid maternity leave...that's the way it should be here too.
Until next time....Linda
