Mari….that familiar voice cheered from inside the house. The windows and doors all wide open so the dust of the summer months could be blown around and exchanged by falls crisp air. Marilyn quickly greeted me with a big smile and a warm hug.
Well, let me see! I said. She opened her mouth, tilting back her head for examinations as we stood on the patio in the afternoon sun. I could clearly see the incision made by the DENTIST to remove some of the bone from the roof of her mouth; This painfully done so that she can get a new set of choppers.
He left her with a few teeth in the front, but it will be a long process of healing, soft food only and then removal of what little teeth he left making way for the new one’s! Which she hopes will be all done the first of the year – that being the goal.
OMG…..freak out! Now, I am the one who normally has no problem with medical issues. But….suddenly my stomach turned upside down as I saw what they had done to her.
Oh my…. it looks…
I cannot believe what I am seeing good! I said.
I cannot eat. I am a little hungry, but I am doing OK, she said with a smile. Doing OK? I thought…. the roof of your month has been slit open like a bake potato! – have you ever burnt the roof of your mouth when eating a piece of pizza….. painful! Well…FYI…. this would be a billion times worse. You poor thing!
We headed for the kitchen table. The same round oak table that over the passed 30 some years has been one of our favorite spots to cry, laugh and solve all problems. We settled into our assigned chairs and the summit commenced.
