Heartfelt welcome back to tooth number 14

Heartfelt welcome back to tooth number 14

— For roughly thirteen months, there’s been a hole in my mouth where tooth number 14 was supposed to be. Earlier this week, I received the crown for my implant, finally finishing the job of refilling the hole. An implant isn’t necessarily supposed to take over a year. Based on what I understand, though, it also shouldn’t be rushed. Spending a little extra time after the extraction to wait for the bone in the jaw to set is a good thing.

Hunger games in the COVID-19 kitchen

— Thanks be to God, we here in Arizona are not yet subject to any mandatory orders to shelter-in-place or remain confined in our homes during the current coronavirus pandemic. However, many of us — if not most of us — are voluntarily limiting our contact with others. In particular, I’ve been avoiding the most chaotic place in town, which is every supermarket. My last trip to the supermarket was Friday last week, at which time I made sure to buy enough beer to last me two weeks.
