I've made an appointment for my three yearly breast scan, I missed my turn whilst I was away and been to the doctors about the dizzy spells I've experienced recently. My doctor thinks they are probably a type of migraine. I suffered with debilitating migraines when I was working and thought they'd stopped, it seems they just take a different and when they happen rather scary form. We are monitoring the situation but at least I feel reassured that I probably don't have some life threatening condition.
Most dramatic of all I've been to the dentist and had two adjacent crowned teeth taken out in preparation for dental implants. I won't go into the graphic details but getting one of them out was traumatic. My dentist was friendly and gentle, he almost moved me to tears with his kindness though I admit I was feeling vulnerable and emotional at the time. Now I have to wait six weeks for healing to take place before the next of seven appointments. I am still in a little pain on the third day, hating having to rinse my mouth frequently with salt water and hoping it's all going to be worthwhile and a good use of my savings. At 68 I don't want a mouth full of brilliant white and perfect teeth but I do want to laugh without displaying gaps.
So that's a lot of interventions in two weeks, I would say I shall take it easy now but there is of course the dreaded Christmas. I've decided not to make a cake this year as we had half of last years still on the go beyond Easter. As usual I have no idea what we shall eat on the 25 but at least I shall be going into the festive season pretty sure that I'm in good working order and that I should keep motoring along for another year or so.
