Pulling Teeth - Friday, 25 March: Day 14 of Project 365
Today, poor Uncle S had to have a molar pulled. The molar had cracked a couple years ago when some guy bashed up his face, and because my uncle didn't get it taken care of, the tooth eventually died. He was oblivious to this until a week ago, when half the molar fell out. Since the tooth was already dead, there was no pain, so it took a while for me to convince Uncle S to go to the dentist, but he did, and today was tooth-pulling day. Now I just have to keep an eye on him for 24 hours, make sure he follows the Post-operative Instructions, and figure out what I can make for dinner...something tells me steak wouldn't be a good choice tonight.
