An Update on Debbi the Dental Drama Queen, by Guiness the Cat
This is Guiness the Cat. I just wanted to let you know that Debbi is back from the endodontist with all the teeth she left home with, but not nearly as much money.
The dentist made a small incision in her gum to scrape out all the infection around her abscessed tooth, but he said that she has lost so much bone it doesn't look optimistic that she will get to keep the tooth. It depends on how well the gums heal and whether or not the infection comes back.
She goes back to see him right before Thanksgiving, and then again in six months. In the meantime, we'll see.
Debbi said the procedure didn't hurt nearly as much as paying for it.
She is supposed to eat cold or lukewarm (not hot) foods today, so she picked up a few things on the way home. Her Novocain is starting to wear off, so I gave her some ibuprofen.
In a little while, I'm going to let her fix herself something to nibble on, then I'll put her in the recliner, cover her up, turn on the TV, and sit on her. I'm sure that will make her feel much better. Right now, I have to go. I need to go get her ice pack out of the freezer and have her put it back on. Then I need to check my inbox for any emails about my second job taking cat litter surveys. Maybe I'll have some cat food products tests to do before Debbi spends all my hard-earned money cat food money on her teeth!
A cat's work is never done.
