Thank you for your comments, emails, visits and phone calls. I found myself thinking my I am blessed. Thanks to Steve for being there every step of the way - he helped distract me in the waiting area and had me laughing.
The surgery yesterday went well with my dental implant although there was the addition of gum grafting that had to occur. The combination of where the implant is located = no solid foods for 4 weeks. I am hoping at my next visit in 2 1/2 weeks maybe he'll lessen that 'sentence'! I don't want to repeat the procedure so plan to be a good patient.
When I returned home and was 'out', Steve tells me Cricket raced around the bed pretty concerned. Now, she is reassured that everything is okay and so she's bored!
Any good suggestions for liquid foods are welcome! Steve has gone to get me a Keva which always hits the spot.
I'm realizing how many foods are connected with the holidays that I'm going to miss. Maybe I can freeze some to eat next month or I can read about them vicariously through comments about what is your favorite foods.
