Husband is a brave boy

Husband had a tooth out today.

The dentist has been trying for months to save it by filling it but she had to admit defeat. She told him not to eat anything for two hours and not to have hot drinks either.

When we got home he said, 'I could probably have a yogurt though.'
'She said you weren't supposed to eat!'
'She said I could have drinks and that's all yogurt is really.'

Brave but stupid.

Just have it out - best way, as I found out.

Oh come on Liz. Better out than in!

I was so glad when my utterly done in tooth got wrenched out instead of filled to torture point and root canaled and then whatever else it needed. Nah! Just yanked out!

I dread having a tooth out - I never have, you know, except under GA. Husband is indeed a brave boy. Perhaps if he puts it under his pillow, the tooth fairy will come.

Tell him she doesn't visit people who don't do as they're told.

And I hope you have an old silver sixpence somewhere! LOL!

It wasn't as bad as he was expecting, James.

Not as bad as last time he had to have a tooth out, gleds. Then he was ill for days.

I haven't had teeth out since childhood, jay. I'd have to be knocked out if I had to have one out now.
