Prayer request

Tomorrow morning (Friday) at 9:10 I’m scheduled for a tooth implant. I lost the tooth over a year ago, and now it’s time to get it taken care of–there’s no good time!  Thanks for the tips from some of you during this decision-making process.

The surgeon has set aside 2 hrs and I need to have a designated driver (Steve)–no, I’m not allowed to drink!   Unfortunately, this isn’t a one-time deal; I’ll be scheduled for follow-up appts and eventually fitted for a crown from my regular dentist. It will be months before the task is complete.

I’m told I’ll be swollen and bruised for a few days.  I started an antibiotic today w/a backup supply of Tylenol 3 w/codeine.  Looking on the bright side, consuming only clear liquids and soft foods for a time…maybe I’ll lose a few more pounds!!

I’d sure appreciate your prayers during this not-looking-forward-to time. Thanks again!

 p.s. Tonight, I’m having my last supper at Outback Steakhouse to celebrate my mother-in-law’s 85th birthday!!  🙂
