WAFFLES: What's oral surgery, Boss? Is it a new game we can play on our iPad?
KATIE: Not exactly, Waffles. It's like going to the vet and instead of just getting a shot with a little needle, they use a big drill.
WAFFLES: A big drill? Like on HGTV???
Glogirly's Date with the Oral Surgeon
Just when Glogirly has started to recover from her extended work trip, she's got a not-so-fun date with the oral surgeon Friday morning. For those of you in-the-know about such things, the procedure she's having is called an Apicoectomy and it's performed by an Endodontist. Something Waffles will never be able to pronounce and if you don't already know what it is, it's probably best to not even ask. There's a dentist, a big drill, they go in sideways through the jaw... say no more.
She's getting valium, gas (not the Mexican bean kind) and plenty of pain killers to help her through it all. Gloman is her driver and we're serving as her primary home care team. She's got a prescription for lots and lots of kitty cuddles, catnaps and Vicodin.
Recovery takes a few days, so we're expecting she'll be pretty loopy for awhile. Good thing Gloman is familiar with our meal service regimen. Surely we'll be needing extra nourishment with all the caregiving we'll be administering.
